The true matriarch of the Vella family. Such a fun loving gentle spirit that was always kind to all she met. Our lives are richer for knowing the laugh the smile and the best hugs ever. RIP with the Angels . You will never be forgotten. God bless you.

My deepest sympathy to the Vella Family, especially to my dearest life long friend, Jeanine. I can only imagine how your hearts are feeling.

I was blessed to know this remarkable women's loving nature and experience first hand her example of motherhood and family. I am forever grateful.

I truly believe the only thing we leave behind is the Love we give away. Well, Mama Tess, thank you for showing us what that looks like. Always and forever in my 💓 Angie
