Liliana Grace Bates


Liliana Grace Bates, precious daughter of Steven and Hailey Bates, was born on Wednesday, August 17, 2022, and at the tender age of 28 days old, on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, God wrapped her in his arms and safely and gently took her to heaven, where she will be happily dancing with the angels.

She was lovingly met in Heaven by her maternal great-grandparents, Merrie and James Homan, and her paternal great-grandparents, Martha, and Marvin Garrison and Becky Lamonica.

Our hearts are broken that you had to leave us so soon, and we will forever cherish the special time we were given with our baby girl, but while we know we had to let you go, we all take great comfort in knowing you will forever be our cherished little angel, Liliana Grace.

She is survived by her loving parents, Steven and Hailey;  her maternal great-grandparents Patricia and Ronald  Bates; her paternal great-grandparent Peggy and David Johnson; her maternal grandparents, Natosha Homan and David Johnson Jr.; her paternal grandparents, Bobbie and Steven Bates; her aunts, Autumn, Shyann, Cassandra and Brittany; her uncles, Austin, Charles, Ronald, and Ethan; her cousins, Hunter and Collin; and many extended family members and a host of wonderful friends of her family.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt special thank you to the staff at Baptist Medical Center, and the incredible doctors, nurses, and staff of Arkansas Children’s Hospital CVICU for their wonderful care they gave our precious angel. They will forever remain a part of Liliana's family.
