God, I pray for comfort for Mr. Kingma's family and friends. Mr. Kingma had a part in many lives of people working at the bank. I was blessed to have done business with this man of compassion for people. I one day had the opportunity to talk with Mr. Kingma at work and I learned that Mr. Kingma was more than just work. I pray for comfort and joy for this family. Dean will always hold a special place in our family's heart. Thank you for your friendship and trust in life, Rest in god's love my friend.
