Christopher “Chris“ London Michael Kinsman went home to his Lord on Wed., May 19, 2010, after a 13-month battle with Lupus, epilepsy and neurodegenerative brain disease.

He passed at home with his parents, sisters and grandparents and went peacefully from this life to his new one.

He was born June 1, 2007, at Baptist East in Montgomery. He was a healthy, happy, content child until stricken by his disease at 22-months-old. He loved to play ball, and he adored penguins.

Throughout his struggle his testimony reached thousands of people all over the world, from Australia, to Europe, Canada and all the way to California. Each and every person he met, he changed their lives in some way.

He has changed many lives for the better.

Always a happy child before he became sick, he loved to smile and he brought joy to friends and family every single day of his life. He has touched thousands of hearts and will be greatly missed, however his time here is over, his mission accomplished and now he can go on to be at peace.
