Claire O'Connor, RIP
A beloved presence on the nightlife and publicity scenes for many years, Claire O'Connor -- wife, mother, publicist, friend -- has died of cancer.
We worked together on club projects through the years (such as trying to plan a Nightlife Hall of Fame), and she always made you feel part of the furniture.
If you knew Claire and were familiar with her warmth, wit, and quick mind, you will be as devastated as I am.
