The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

You have told us you want to share your sto­ries of loved ones lost to sui­cide.

Re­sponse has been over­whelm­ing to Nicole’s Story, a long look at the life, men­tal ill­ness and sui­cide of 20-year-old Nicole Pate­naude by Hamil­ton Spec­ta­tor colum­nist Su­san Clair­mont.
