"ALL day and ALL night, ANGELS are watching over the Griffin-Armstrong Families"

"...You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were gray
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be
What you have been to me you will always be
You will always be the girl
In my life for all times
Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars.."


On Thursday, April 29, 2021, our Heavenly Father looked around his garden and found an empty place, he then dispatched angels from glory to bring home a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Mrs. Audrey Griffin Armstrong. Mother Armstrong, gained her own pair of Angel wings in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her devoted family and caretakers. 

Audrey was on born January 3, 1927 to the late Willie Ray and Mamie Cherry Griffin.

She accepted Christ at an early age and joined Antioch Baptist Church and remained a faithful member until her death. Throughout her time at Antioch, Audrey served as a Trustee and on several other Auxiliary Boards.
