Aunt Thelma would always greet me by placing her hands on my cheeks just before she would hug me. That gesture always brought such joy to my heart. She was so kind, gentle and wise.

I remember going with my folks to Anaheim back in 1983 when her husband (my Uncle John) was running for President of The American Dental Association. JLB in ‘83! They had a large suite at their hotel and it was packed full of people for a busy night of campaigning and socializing. She ran the room like the ambassador that she was and made everyone feel right at home. I was 11 at the time, but I remember it vividly.

I hope that you and Uncle John are hand in hand and at peace, Aunt Thelma. God bless you and thank you for the wonderful memories and love.

Ms. Thelma has been and always be our "Las Vegas" Mom.

We always enjoyed being in her presence, to be a part of a large family. We loved her no nonsense approach to everything.

Sitting around the table enjoying her cooking or playing cards are highlights in our lives that will live in our hearts forever.

Her love for her family has always been on display. To watch her light up when speaking about her kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren was a true delight. All knew she loved them all so dearly.

Ms. Thelma touched our lives in so many ways and will live on in our hearts and minds. God blessed Ms. Thelma and she passed it on to all that had the pleasure to know her.

Thelma Bomba was the sweetest, dearest, most loving and kind soul whom you could ever imagine. She was like a mother to me and to many, and her spirit will live on in her children, theirs, and her grandchildren. So too will it endure in all beautiful that lives and breathes. May she rest in peace.
