On Tuesday, March 10th, 2020, God gave us a glimpse of a tiny, precious miracle we named George Mac Armstrong. With great love and anticipation, we awaited his arrival, excited to become first time parents. Even though his little life was so very brief, the momentous and unshakeable love a parent feels for a child was already planted in our hearts. We deeply hope Mac felt this love and instinctively knew he was wanted very much. Although we will long for our son until we can hold him once again, we know the experience of Mac was truly a gift from the hand of an almighty and loving God. For reasons we may never understand in this life, God decided Mac should be with Him now, so into His loving arms he went. While our hopes and dreams for our son will never materialize here on Earth, our faith and trust in our Father remains steadfast. The promise of a reunion some day with Mac is one we will hold onto for the rest of our days. He is now and forever remains, a precious child of God.
Mac was preceded in death by his maternal great-grandparents, Robert Mack Claiborne and Rose McGirt; paternal grandparents, Christy and Eric Armstrong, Sr.; and paternal great-grandmother, May Armstrong. Mac leaves his loving parents, Micalea Claiborne and George Allen Armstrong; maternal grandparents, Robert and Christiana Claiborne of Fountain; maternal great-grandmother, Mary D.

"People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.'"
