Tess was a sweet soul who would give you the shirt off her back. She was a firecracker spirit who loved dancing and having a good time with the ones she loved. You could always find Tess walking or jogging down the road or through woods enjoying nature. She absolutely adored cats and always needed at least 2! Her spirit lives on and will always be with us!
