Mac was born Thursday, January 26, 2023. He lived thirteen beautiful days in the NICU at Children’s Hospital of Alabama. Mac was perfect, wonderfully made, strong, mighty, inspiring, and loved beyond comprehension. He changed the lives of his parents for the better, as well as the lives of all he met and of those who prayed over him. On Mac's final day on earth his parents told him all about Heaven and about many of the loved ones he would meet there. They told him he would be able to see, and that his body that had fought so hard here would be healed. Mac was such a beautiful light, and his parents feel blessed to know that he is theirs now and in their future. Mac was preceded in death by his precious infant twin siblings, Neil and Nora Chapman.
Surviving in addition to his parents is his sister, Lucy Chapman; grandparents, Larry and Janet Barrington Chapman; Jim and Tanya Tolbert Roberts, all of Ozark; aunt, Emily Pritchett (Perry), Skipperville; uncles, Jarod Tyler Roberts, Ozark, and James Carley Chapman (Kayla), Roeton; several cousins, great aunts, great uncles, and other relatives also survive.
Serving as pallbearers will be uncles, James Carley Chapman and Jarod Tyler Roberts.
