Whitey A bond of a twin is strong. You will always be a part of me. You kicked me out of the womb (his joke) but you will always be in my heart. Love you forever and always. I'm sending you a big kiss up to heaven.... your five minute older wiser, smarter womb-mate. Ha Ha Love Dot p.s. Lee, the girls and the grandkids sending hugs and kisses all the way up to Heaven too-share them with mom and dad.

No longer in pain or suffering Dave. Thoughts and prayers to the entire Goerl family as they mourn your life. What a shame to pass less than a year after retiring from your job at the same place for 47 yrs. RIP Dave.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Sorry to hear that you lost your brother. But the years he spent taking care of your mom was a joy to him. Now he rejoins his mom and dad.

Uncle Whitey...It was always so easy to see how much you loved your family. You welcomed all of the babies into your arms, you cherished moments with your nieces and nephews and family in general... you created memories to last a lifetime just by your smile. I will miss your laugh and your general care for those around you. Thank you for the memories and say hi to Grandma G for me, give her a great big hug too, please! I will make sure to keep telling my children how great you were and how much you loved them.

Susie, Dot, Janice, Danny & families..... So sorry to hear about David. I have so many fond memories of playing at your house as kids and even though we girls outnumbered the boys, they always seemed to get the better of us....and of course David was the ringleader of the boys....fun times. I loved the way he took such good care of your Mom after your Dad passed away. Our thoughts and prayers and hugs go out to you. Love to all.

Whitey(Dave), memories: youth-fun times with neighbors, cousins, friends-and all of the weddings we were at. Then the Country Aire and Camelot Menasha: Couldn't wait to see him every Wednesday,Friday and Sunday nights. Hotel motel time, bartenders leave , customers stay. E-I-E-I-O, captain & coke and PBR(yuck). Then as he aged the camera came out and yes it took him 20 years to perfect it but the pictures of his nieces and nephews and later grand nieces and nephews -awesome. And everyone of these kids slept in his arms for hours at end-priceless. The last year talking to him at 2am while walking to work and taking him shopping at Woodmans brought us closer, I'm thankful for that and I'm thankful for him being my brother-say hi to mom and dad and Bob-, love you bro-Dan.
