In Devoted Memory of

Bailey Evan Bates

7-31-2017

age 19

My dearest love.... We all miss you so terribly. Your brothers and sisters, your dad and I, family and friends, we are all completely devastated with heartache over your absence. My dear boy, from the moment you were born I saw your beautiful uniqueness and treasured your unlimited ability to love everyone around you. You touched so many people with your tenderness during your time with us and we are each far better people through knowing you, loving you and being loved by you. You changed the very way each of us sees life, people, and ourselves through every interaction. Your family, your friends, even your teachers, are all inspired by who you are and your gentle soul, through your love, words, your art, your challenges and your triumphs. You traveled a difficult road by circumstance, one too much to bear at so many points in your short life, and you prevailed at every turn. I am so incredibly proud, honored, and humbled to be your mom, and I know your Dad, brothers, sisters, family and friends share your shining honor as we envelope ourselves in your memory. We carry you, and all you've taught us, in every moment of every day baby. Every single day.

All our love baby.... Mom and Dad (Gae Marie Cannon, David Bates), siblings (Marc Anderson, Marc Cannon,

Lily Cannon, Tiffany Bates), and Grandparents (Mary Miller, Andrea Farewell)

I already wrote, but I can't believe it. I'll never forget the times we walked each other to class making us late for the next one, walking through the trails to my house, all the jokes we had, every laugh, every smile, every hug. I really miss you and not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Thank you for being there for me always, I wish I could've been there for you in your darkest time. I love you tons, old man. Thank you for being a big part in my life, my best friend. You will forever remain in my heart. I'll be there tomorrow to celebrate your 19 years of life. Anything for you.

Our hearts ache so much. We think of our big pizza slices at Naples. The night at Norrie Point we told stories and laughed. You were freezing cold that night since I opened all the windows because of my hot flashes, but you kept your sweet smile and demeanor throughout. We sat where you played video games the other day, our eyes welled up with tears, but we also had a sense of calm, feeling your presence and looking at your video controller you were so happy to get. We thank God for giving us the chance to know you, spend time with you and all the memories that will be instilled in our hearts forever. We send you love and bright shiny star light. We love you Bailey
We love you Gae Marie and your beautiful close knit loving family. With prayers.

I am so saddened by the passing of this bright, kind, funny, perceptive, artistic young man. Bailey was an old soul. He had a special goodness, a special light that all who knew him could immediately sense. My thoughts and prayers are with his mother and all of his family.

Gae Marie and Family,

I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the pain and the heartache you're going through.

Bailey was a wonderful young man who was wise beyond his years and an absolute joy to be around. He inspired so many people and he was able to brighten someone's day in an instant -- he had such a gift for that.

I'll never forget Bailey's warm laugh, gentle ways, and kind, caring nature.

Sending you all love and prayers,

There are no words that can express my sorrow! Bailey is such an amazing soul! I am sending healing love and light to all the people who will carry a piece of Bailey in their hearts forever, which is probably everyone he met! He was that special! He stopped by my house a couple years back and looked amazing! I was so happy for him! We talked for a while and it warmed my heart that he felt comfortable and confident that I would be so happy to see him because I was! I was thrilled, he was always one of my favorites! I'll always have a special place in my heart for you Bailey! I was blessed and honored to teach you, but you taught me so much more than you'll ever know! All my love always....❤❤

My heartfelt condolences to Bailey's family and friends. I was deeply saddened to hear the devastating news. I was the teaching assistant in Bailey's class at FDR. It was my pleasure to work with him and get to know him through his beautiful art work and his sense of humor. I am a better person for having known such a sensitive and amazing young man
