Rayvon Anthony Messer, Jr. “Junior” was granted his angel wings on April 19, 2017. His days were spent surrounded by family and friends whose lives he had touched in so many ways throughout his short yet memorable life. He attended P.B. Young Elementary School, where he had many teachers and friends who loved him. Junior’s life was full of life, playfulness and laughter. He had just learned to ride his bike without training wheels; he was a big boy now! His favorite color was baby blue and he loved his bike and sports. He was truly a fly guy. His favorite television shows were Paw Patrol and Ninja Turtles. With Junior’s passing we must remind ourselves that his life is one to be celebrated. Although we will miss him every day, he will remain constantly in our hearts. Junior is survived by his parents, April Green, VA; father, Rayvon Messer, Sr., VA; step-brother, Anthony Messer, VA; grandparents, Angela Green, VA, William Dancy, VA, Robert and Hope Alston, GA, Desmond and Vermell Sessoms, VA; uncles, Lamont Green, VA, Ahmad Green, VA, Robert Green, VA, Johnathan Mullen, Khalil Green, GA, Ernest Boyd and Nate Alston, GA; aunts, Mariana Martich, GA, Doreatha Boyd, VA, Evyine Sataten, GA, Makeia Green, VA, Aniyah Green, VA, Akeba Phillip, SC, Trinstano Johnson, TN, Janay Robinson, Jazmine Taylor and Dannisha Blanchard. Fly High, Fly Guy Mama’s Boy got his wings.

Linda To the Family. Losing a love one in death is a trying time for all. I just want to give the family some comfort and hope from God's word, which gives the assurance that one day we will see our dear love ones again. ACTS 24:15 And I have a hope toward God, which hope these(men) themselves also entertain, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteuos and the unrighteous. Certainly while we await for these wonderful promise, I hope the family truly find comfort knowing this wonderful hope from Gods word.

Sheila Sessoms Santiago Junior will be greatly missed by our family but never forgotten. The loss feels as great as the love we all felt for him. It's going to be so strange visiting Desmond & Vermel and not seeing him or hearing his voice. He was often center of attention at our family gatherings. A bright and loving soul, gone too soon.

The Edmonds Family We send you our deepest sympathy. Words cannot console when we have loss someone we love in death. I would like to share something I have personally found to be comforting. The Bible at Revelation 21:3, 4, and Isaiah 25:8 state that God will do away with soon all causes we have for suffering, as well as sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and my family and it is our hope that these thoughts will comfort you and your family as well.

Natalie Walden Junior will be dearly missed. His life brought indescribable joy to Desmond, Vermell, and to our family. His loss leaves a lonesome void. May God keep Junior in his 'book of memory' and may our faith sustain us during this most difficult time. “May you have undeserved kindness and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." 2 Corinthians 1:2
