Almost 3 years ago my mom Cathy Whitcomb (born Cathy Mattson) and I stopped in and spent a night with David Midge and Audrey. David and my mom (who has since past) were 1st cousins and they were close friends. What a privilege it was for me to watch their friendship and meet David and ask him 100s of family questions about family. I am grateful to have known you David. Until we meet again!!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. These last few months have been difficult I am sure. Now Dave is whole and building more log cabins. Dave was so much help when my father was sick.. We will never forget his support and kindness. Wish we could have returned his loving friendship during his illness. We hope you find comfort with memories of a wonderful person and life he lived. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love, Lynn and Scot Dieringer
