Remember Tee Corinne:
Twenty years before her death she published these words in Common Lives/Lesbian Lives. "When death comes into our lives it is important not to become victims in our own grief, for in the passivity pain may induce, we suffer not only personal losses but the loss of our own history, our culture. Somehow we must take the time, summon the energy to write obituaries, to insure the survival of work, to honor the dead in way that they will be visible and available to succeeding generations."
