I had two very close buddies when I was growing up. One was Don Slabicki, and the other Jesse Anderson. Jess lived on Ward Avenue in Hamilton, across from Greenwood Cemetery. His father was a master carpenter and built a Sears Roebuck & Co. home back in the late 1920's. It was a charming cottage with a very exaggerated entrance way; a ski slope type roof at the doorway entrance. The building was recently demolished and a vacant lot now takes its place. On my many visits to my mother's grave site at Greenwood Cemetery, I had a very intimate view of Jess's old home. Mom Glover was very fond of Jesse and a strange spiritual connection seemed to connect the grave site with the home Jess grew up in.
