I am Hugh Enright's great grand daughter. I aspired to be just like his daughter Marie Enright. She spoke of her father often. I had lost my father early in my life as well. His daughter had tremendous grace and charm. Her kindness provides me with a beacon of hope long after she is gone.

Hugh Enright was my great grandfather. His son in law Joe O’Hare served as a mounted patrolman in NYC. One grandson was a school
Principal on Long Island and the other a Jesuit Priest who served as President of Fordham University. A fine Irish American family.

I seldom visit Facebook; why did I choose this date, the anniversary of my deceased husband's grandfather's tragic death? How amazing to see the words of gratitude offered by strangers for Patrolman Hugh Enright's dedicated service. An Irish immigrant, he left behind a young widow, a 2 year old daughter and an infant son. Hugh's legacy includes a son-in-law who also served in the New York City Police Department as a Mounted Officer, His daughter, Marie, taught in NYC public schools for more than 39 years, as did her son, my husband. Her older son has been a member of the Society of Jesus for 72 years and was President of Fordham University for 19 years. And Hugh's legacy continues with 9 wonderful great-great grandchildren and their 11 children.

Married to his grandson.

It is very moving to read this account of my great-grandfather's death, as well as the tributes that have been paid to him by strangers. Thank you for your service. I'm sorry your daughter, my Nana, never got a chance to know you.

Rest In Peace.
