Our sincerest condolences for your loss. It has been many years since we lived at Roberta Avenue but we never forgot the generosity and support that Vincent and Teresa had given us. We came to Florida with little more than a dream having just left military service in Europe. Vincent agreed to rent the property on Roberta Avenue while Gary pursued an education at the University of Central Florida which has lead to a remarkable and rewarding career in anesthesia. We celebrate the life of Vincent and know God will bless and comfort you in your loss.

Our deepest condolences to the entire Vella family for your loss. We were once neighbors of yours when you lived on Sonata Lane in East Orange county many years ago. Our children grew up together and went to school together. Both our families moved away and since have lost touch, but we remember him and will remember all of you in our prayers. God bless you, and may he rest in peace.

With our deepest sympathy,
The Eller family,
Bob, Evelyn, Bob,Jr., & Sandy (Eller) Tindall
