I was sent this obituary by a former high school classmate who noticed the reference to Sailor Ed's restaurant. I, in turn, shared this with my Dad, Chet Godomsky who owned Sailor Ed's where Lillian worked. He remarked, in typical former boss fashion, "She was a excellent worker, one of my best. She loved her job and didn't care about whether tips were big or small. " He remembers also seeing her when they were recently in the Mystic physical rehab facility together. On behalf of the Godomsky family, we send you our heartfelt sympathy on the loss of Lillian. Sincerely, Pat Godomski
