Abigail Rosalie Ayers, 29, of Bremo Bluff, passed to her eternal rest on Tuesday, April 19, 2011.
Abigail is survived by her loving parents, Joseph and Ann Carol Ayers; her brothers, the Reverend Mr. Eric Ayers, Christopher Ayers and his wife, Melanie, Gabriel Ayers and his wife, Rachael; her sisters, Heather Harris and her husband, Ray, Elizabeth Vaughan and her husband, Geoffrey, and Leah Ayers and her fiance, Jared Yellets; four nieces, one nephew, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Abby touched the lives of all who met her and was a blessing to all who knew her. Despite having cerebral palsy since birth and enduring periods of sickness and suffering her whole life, her life was not defined by those things; rather she was a source of joy and inspiration to all who knew her. Abby taught so many people about the meaning of compassion, empathy, suffering and love. She loved playing music with her family, socializing, swimming and enjoying nature.
Her family wants to express gratitude to Abby Jones, Dr. Randolph Lanford and his staff, Betty Stokes, Amy Williams and Rebecca Ledingham for their love and support.
A Christian Wake Service was held Monday, April 25, 2011, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.
The family received friends at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church Monday, April 25, 2011, and Tuesday, April 26, 2011, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial Tuesday, April 26, 2011, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 8200 Woodman Road, Richmond, Virginia.
A private interment followed.
Memorial contributions may be made to Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Joseph's Home, 1503 Michaels Road, Richmond, VA 23229-4899.
