HIGH POINT — William Edgar St. Clair McCloskey, son of John Andrew McCloskey and Kimberly Martin McCloskey of High Point, NC was born deceased on Saturday, August 15, 2009 at 12:40 p.m. He weighed 5 pounds, 11 ounces and was 15.5 inches long. At 18 weeks gestation, he was diagnosed with dwarfism, eventually Thanatophoric Displasia Type 1, which is almost always non survivable.
Believing that Gods timing is perfect, William’s parents placed his tiny life in their Heavenly Fathers hands and though this was a tragic time in their lives, they were able to experience God’s grace and love through the prayers and encouragement of friends and strangers around the country.
William was laid to rest on Thursday, August 20, at Arcadia Memorial Cemetery in Arcadia, Missouri, near his great granddad, Edgar St. Clair and other loved ones.
