To all the Enrights -

My condolences on the loss of your father. I have many fond memories of days spent at your house on Longwood Drive, hanging out with Ruth, sleepovers in the attic, and playing hearts with whoever was around. Your Dad was one of the fathers-of-the-block, who each brought their unique personalities to our communal upbringing. I hope that your many memories of the good times with your Mom and Dad bring comfort to you all, and help you laugh and smile at this sad time.

Thinking of you all,
Anne Clark

To Mr. Enright's Family. My condolences to all of you, children and grandchildren, for the loss of your beloved father and grandfather. I was fortunate to have been Mr. Enright's secretary at Arvey, Hodes, Costello & Burman for over 15 years. He remains in my mind "my boss" even though I had worked elsewhere during my working years. Typing Mr. Enright's correspondence and legal documents was an adventure, an education (especially in vocabulary), and often hilarious. He used words in their truest dictionary definition. Never a wasted word. Most of all in my memories is the loving way he spoke of his family. Wonderful stories of his nine children and family life. There were times when five or six of his children were in the office at the same time and when they would march out together for lunch, Mr. Enright's face was beaming. A proud father indeed. After leaving AHC&B, I sorely missed hearing "Singer, bring your book!" called out to me. How lucky for me to have had such a fine and memorable working experience. I send you all my deepest sympathy. You had a remarkable father and he and his wonderful wife raised a remarkable family. With deepest sympathy to you all.
