  10. Randy Bombek condolence:

    I never got a chance to meet her, but she sent beautiful cards to my grandfather (John Bombek) and mother (Mary Bombek) and the rest of the family. She was always present in our lives somehow, even though we were so far away. She kept the bond and ties closely. I’m currently in the US Army and deployed overseas. I just received this news and wish the best for the otherside of the family in which I have not met yet.
    She will always be remembered,
    Randy Bombek
