This came to me from Susan Cormier:


Considering that many of us are writers or storytellers, I think it would be appropriate if we
compiled a collection of stories and memories about T. Paul Ste-Marie to give to his mom.

If everyone who has a fond or funny memory or two of T. Paul would please take a moment to write a paragraph or more (pages would be great!) about him, I
would be overjoyed. Talk about how he inspired you to
write or create art, that funny conversation you
shared with him, or that flirtatious crush you had.
Did he stand up for you in an argument, encourage you
to get onstage, work with you on a project?

Don't worry about editing or polishing -- just please
keep it positive, and avoid trendy shorthand (eg. LOL,
IMHO) as his mom is of an older generation.

Please send your memories/stories to me at
susangrad93@yahoo.ca no later than noon on Saturday,
June 9, and please specify if you would like to remain anonymous.

I'll save all these stories to Word, print them out,
bind the pages simply, and give the book to his mom at
the wake on Sunday.

I am hoping for at least a dozen responses to this. A
hundred or more would be fantastic.

Please forward this email to anyone whose life was
touched by T. Paul.

Thank you,
Susan Cormier
