  • Notes 
    • from this author
      Hazel & Harvey were my neighbours when I was growing up. They were retired and aging then and lived at 11 Truelove St. which was Morton St at that time. The vacant lot next to them was also part of their property. Harvey spent a lot of time keeping all his cedar hedges in perfect trim and Hazel was often in her garden with her straw hat on. They were always welcoming to me and I enjoyed visiting them - in the summer when they were out and about, that was most days. They were very kind to this neighbourhood kid and I have very fond memories of them.
