  1. Michael was not your conventional guy. He preferred to be on horseback,worshiping God in the mountains then sitting in a stuffy building. He told me, “How could you not see the power of God and be in awe of him when you are riding in these majestic mountains”. Michael loved and respected nature. Having gone camping with him numerous times,I could see that when he was in the woods,he was in his element. I loved camping with him.I want to express my sincere condolences to his siblings.and the rest of his extended family. I loved Michael and his passing has left a hole in my heart that I don’t think will ever heal. We have all lost a good man.
    Rest easy Michael, you will never be forgotten!

  4. I have such fond memories of visits to the Kingma home when I was in junior high and high school. Hospitality was abundant, and Mike was the sweet little brother. Thinking of all of you during this difficult time, and praying for the Lord’s comfort and peace.
