Avery Teresa Moore
February 23, 2018 – July 1, 2018
Avery Teresa Moore was born on Friday, February 23, 2018 in Augusta, Ga. After fighting so incredibly hard for over four months, she entered into rest on Sunday, July 1st, at Children's Hospital of Atlanta embraced in her mother’s loving arms, holding her father’s hand, and surrounded by those who loved her.
Although she was only with us for a short time, her life inspired thousands who followed her story. Avery’s big brown eyes, curly brown hair and sweet courageous spirit forever changed our world.
The great hope of the family is in the anticipation of being with Avery again in glory, where “God will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more.”
She is survived by her mother, Alison Nicole Moore, her father, Steven Dwayne Moore, as well as loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Avery was preceded in death by her paternal grandmother, Teresa Bohannon, and her paternal grandfather, Dwayne Moore.
Steven and Alison would like to personally thank Avery’s nurses for all of their love, compassion and support. We will be forever grateful.
Public visitation will be on Sunday, July 8, at Elliott Sons Funeral Home, 4255 Columbia Rd. in Augusta, Ga from 5 PM to 7 PM. A private funeral service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, we are requesting donations be made to the Avery Moore Foundation which will be set up in her honor in hopes of helping other children and families devastated by the reality of congenital heart disease. Donations can be made at South State Bank to the account ‘Avery Moore Foundation’ or arrangements can be made with the family.

My thoughts and prayers are with Avery's family. I can not imagine how lost and broken hearted you are with the loss of your treasured little girl. May you find comfort in knowing that she is well and whole, with no longer any pain or confusion. Her life, short as it was, became a beacon of prayer and compassion for so many. Avery will not be forgotten.
I am grateful to have been allowed to love Avery as she fought her fight.

To our precious and much loved Avery, you will forever be in the hearts of so many who loved you and prayed for your healing. We all know that you are in Heaven cooing with Mother Teresa and Papa Dwayne.
I pray that you will be the guardian angel over your mom and dad, to watch over them and protect them. They loved you so much. Even though we know that you are in a much better place in Heaven and you are whole , we are so heart broken that you have left us. I will never forget holding you after you were born and looking into your beautiful face with those big brown eyes. We love you always baby Avery and we will never forget you. You rest sweet baby until we can meet again.
Love you always,
Johnny and Donna Moore
