    My brother Mike was such a loving and giving man. He always looked out for everyone he cared about. My sisters and I have many great memories of our wonderful brother. He ALWAYS stuck up for his sisters when he found it necessary. Yup he was a loving older brother. Loved the little children and enjoyed making them laugh. Say Hi to Mom, Dad, Maureen and Joe for us. We will all be together again someday. Love you Mike

    The Loss of Future

    When a sibling dies, all future special occasions will be forever changed. There will be no more shared birthday celebrations, anniversaries, or holidays. There will be no telephone calls telling of the birth of a new nephew or niece. The sharing of life’s unique and special events will never again take place.

    09/04/2016. Dear Mike, RIP
    Mike’s heart was as big as the sky. His laughter was hearty and infectious. His relationship with me & my children was special, he knew everything about all of us, felt it and remembered always!
    The family bond that our parents (Joe & Eileen Enright) forged is/ was so strong (thank God) . As adults, I didn’t see my brothers all that often. But that didn’t change anything. The sibling bond and love was forever present. A new baby in the family, a wedding, even sadly a funeral, we would be together and it was like we had seen each other yesterday. My sisters and I always felt Mike’s “unconditional love” during every phase of our lives. And that unconditional love and respect was reciprocated 100%. Now he is gone, so hard to accept or comprehend. Our hearts break as they did when we lost both of our parents within two months of each other, lost our beloved sister, lost our beloved big brother Joe. You will be in our hearts every single day Mike, as you have always been. Love, your sister Eileen

    Words can not express how much he will be missed, He was the funniest joke teller of all time, I can hear him laughing harder then anyone during his joke telliing, because of his laughing a 5 min joke took 30 mins…..How we will miss that. Theres a forever spot in our heart for Mike, He will be forever loved and missed.

    Over three weeks later I’m still not sure if I’m comprehending or excepting the fact my father is gone. He had a heart of gold and loved everyone so much and would do anything for them. He was an angel! He was my hero! He was my rocK! I miss his voice although I listen to his voice mail daily! Even as I hold his ashes I don’t think I’m comprehending! You will always be with us girls! I love you Dad always and forever!!
