Enright Strong! You fought the fight as a family against cancer with the best care givers and you gave it your all. Rest in peace Kenny. You are all in our prayers. Gone too soon but always in your heart. I will never forget my 1st experience with pain ball at Kevin's Bachelor Party. Within seconds of the start, Ken had me laughing with his shot to my forehead from 50 yards out which found my shield coated in purple paint. Quickly it was game on. No doubt you have a strong angel watching over!
