Heaven has a new little angel.

Bentley Marie Barron slipped peacefully out of the arms of her parents and twin sister, Jess, Meredith and Braelinn Barron, on Sunday, May 12, 2019 at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Egleston Hospital into the waiting arms of our Lord and Savior and all the saints of Heaven.

After seven months and ten days, she left the sterile environment of the intensive care unit for the first time. She is now healthy, free and surrounded in eternal love by all of her family members who went on before her.

In addition to her parents and twin sister, Bentley is survived by her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Rich of Peachtree City and Mr. and Mrs. Frank H. Barron of Newnan; great-grandmother, Elizabeth Podolski of Peachtree City; and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.

The family appreciates the prayers, thoughts and concerns from so many over the last seven months. Bentley will be laid to rest in a private, graveside service. Please respect their privacy and continue to pray for the family as they grieve the loss of this sweet, innocent and gentle child.
