June 23, 1945. Violet, the first Connors girl was born. Who could have known how MANY Connors girls were still to come? As the first, Vi led the way for all of us. She loved her family above all and in a no nonsense way guided the entire clan of Connors girls as each of us tried to figure out how to make our own mark in the world. We shared many wonderful times together. Like when Vi shuttled all eight of us out the front door at the same time on a Saturday afternoon so we could pose for a “surprise” family picture for Mom and Dad’s anniversary. I think Mom and Dad never even noticed!
