Zion Church of God Apostolic, under the leadership of the late Bishop E. L. West.       Avion’s love of music led him to becoming a member of the high school band and chorus, and a member of the Mt. Zion Church of God Apostolic church choir.        Avion was loved by many people in this community.  He was a great caregiver for his parents, and to them he was affectionately known as “Pugar”.  His late grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Willie B. “Bud” and Inez Jackson also called him “Choc”.        Our loved one transitioned from this earthly realm to Eternal Rest on Monday, February 4, 2019 at Tift Regional Medical Center.  His brother, Justin Jamar Richardson, his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Willie B. "Bud" and Inez Jackson, have all preceded him in death.     He leaves to cherish his memories his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lamar and Brenda Sue Richardson of Ashburn, Georgia; his brothers, Lamario (Shnesha) Richardson, Donte (Tinessa) Richardson, all of Tifton, Georgia, Jamarion Richardson of Ashburn, Georgia; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. James and Laura Laster of Ashburn, Georgia; two special aunts, Sharon J.

    May I offer my sincere condolences for your loss. May your hearts find comfort in God's Word where it states: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord will wipe the tears from all faces" (Isaiah 25:8). Almighty God promises to awaken our loved ones to a world of true peace with no sickness (Isaiah 33:24), and no more troubles (Revelation 21:4) throughout eternity (Psalm 37:29). May your hearts find comfort and hope in God’s promises and for more comfort, please visit jw.org.

    We're so sorry to hear you are suffering the loss of your dear loved one. May you find strength and some comfort in the words found in Psalms 9:9, which reads: “Jehovah will become a secure refuge for the oppressed, A secure refuge in times of distress.” Our loving God cares about us and is ready to bring us comfort if we allow him (1John 5:14). He also has made the provision of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored into a beautiful paradise (Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55:11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your dear loved one? Find out more about this resurrection online at JW.ORG

    Dear Family, Please accept my condolences. The sting of death is hard to bear. Our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands our sorrow. He doesn’t want us hurting. In fact, in His Word, the Bible, He gives us encouragement. It’s explained in His Word about why death and suffering happen. Additionally, He helps us to understand that this was not meant to be. Acts 24:15, in the Bible, notes that there will be a resurrection! Revelation 21:4 mentions that our Creator promises that death, mourning, and pain will be things of the past. What’s more, 1 Corinthians 15:26 confirms that death will be brought to nothing. Imagine that! A world in which there’ll be no more death. Can you picture it? I am encouraging you to take heart! Currently, your loved one is now resting. But, in the very near future, that loved one will be raised---resurrected---to the prospect of living here, on earth—FOREVER! This is a PROMISE from our Creator, HIMSELF! Isn’t that wonderful, good news? I hope these words of encouragement have done for you what I have intended for them to do. And, that is, to provide you with some comfort, peace, and strength.
