Laverl "Dee-Dee" Goldtooth

Gravesite services for son, brother, uncle and papa, Laverl "Dee-Dee" Goldtooth, 47, were held Sept. 5, 2008 at Page Cemetery. Laverl passed away Sept. 3, 2008 in Phoenix.

Laverl was born Feb. 28, 1961 in Tuba City into the Ta'neezhanii Clan and born for Biih Bitoonii.

He is survived by his mother Lorraine Goldtooth; his brother Loren Goldtooth Sr.; five nieces, LaVerne Lomakema, Loretta Goldtooth, Lynnette Manygoats, Lorayne Goldtooth and Jennifer Roy; two nephews, Loren Goldtooth Jr. and Soki Roy; and 13 grandchildren.

Laverl was preceded in death by his father, Albert Goldtooth Sr., and his maternal grandparents, Ruby and Joe Bergen Sr.

Laverl's family would like to extend their great appreciation for all the support of family and friends who helped during this difficult time in our life.

A special thank you to Desert Memorial, Navajo Nation President Joe Shirley, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Maxx, Ernestine Goldtooth and Family, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Harvey, Mr. and Mrs. Benson Begody, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Begay, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Sloan, Helen Goldtooth, Anita Butler, Sarah Benally, Lamar Corneilson, Bo Hemstreet, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Sekakuku, Jolene Bergen, Joe Bergen Jr., Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Nezz, Mr. and Mrs. Aaron McCabe, Mr. and Mrs. Leander Bergen, Mr. and Mrs. Nike Natonabah and Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Russell. There are many others who gave their comfort and support.

Dee-Dee was a thoughtful son who always watched over his mother. He was the most generous brother a man could have.

Dee-Dee was a true uncle and a proud papa who was always there to support all his nieces, nephews and grandchildren in every aspect of their lives. He will be dearly missed and will always remain in our hearts.

For our uncle and pa-pa "Dee-Dee":
"An Angel whispered "take my hand and come with me....your work is done."
I went away to a place where there's no tears, no sorrow....only laughter and smiles.
As I move amongst the clouds....I'll look down and smile upon you.
I am not alone....all who went before are here.
I know you'll grieve and wish I was still here....I am here in the memories you hold dear.
Remember how much I love you and know I took your love with me.
I did not wish for you to cry, nor feel sad.
My pain is gone and I am free.
Soon you'll come to me....until then God will be with you. Just as he's here with me."
