Ermias Sahven Bates

August 28, 2019November 22, 2019

Ermias Sahen Bates was born on 08/28/2019 out of love from Devin and Colby Bates. He was survived by 7 of the greatest siblings that have ever walked the planet Devin Jr, Kennedy, Mariah Drake, Ernesto, Makeylah and Yuni. The best way to describe Ermias's appearance would be to refer to Rev 1:14 and 15 "Hair like wool and skin like bronze" Even though Ermias was only 86 days old when passed he posited qualities that were way advance for his age. His personality attracted every one that laid eyes on him. Ermias "Boy Boy" Bates will be missed and never forgotten. May angels lead him in.

I wish I had memories to share of little Ermy. I just remember my mother, his grandmother sending me pictures of him. I remember thinking how beautiful he was and how much he favored his father. With his passing he has left an emptiness in many hearts but at the same time he has filled gaps that needed to be mended. The birth of this baby brought us closer and he reminds us of how important family is. Im grateful for our little angel. I know he is smiling down upon us all in the warm and loving arms of our beloved grandmother Margaret Henry. Though the tears continue to fall,I pray God continues to rest his loving hands upon His father Devin and Mother Colby. I pray that one day they're truly able to smile again and that their hearts won't be so heavy. May the lord fill Ermias heart with all the love his family holds for him and remind him of how much he is loved and I pray the memories of him never die.
