4 Condolences for William “Bill” J. Sakowich Jr. of Chelmsford

    Edward J Boudreau Jr

    My condolences to Bill’s family. Memories of Billy go back 60 years when our families vacationed at Manomet Beach together and our visiting Uncle Vinnie and Aunt Ida in Brighton with our playing ball in the street. For whatever reason our paths did not cross much as adults for which I am sadden. I know that God has taken him into His arms and he will be at peace. I pray that God’s grace be with you all as you cope with his passing and your loss.

    I was sadden to hear about my cousin Bill. Growing up in Cambridge and Arlington the cousins from Lynn, Arlington, Brigton and Cambridge would always have mini family reunions in the Lynn woods or at the beaches on the north shore. We all grew up loving sports and and always had Lithuanian food. We all would listen to the uncles and aunts tell of family history. These great memories with Bill and the rest of the family will always be with me. Prayers are with the Sakowich family.
