Ashley & The Gorrs
The Gorr’s are SUPER fans of the Green Bay Packers. So much so that their Helper, Ashley Alkek, wrote a letter to the Green Bay Packers with the request to send a photo in return. The team must of really liked his story because a week later, there it was, an official photo of the Packer’s head coach waiting for Mr. Gorr. Ashley has loved getting to know this midwestern couple and feels like the help has been mutual, as she’s received invaluable wisdom from listening to their stories.
Mr. Gorr is the epitome of a grandfather figure. He enjoys spending his time talking, telling stories, and listening to football.
Ashley is a young writer and storyteller and loves working with Mr. Gorr. “The highlight of my week is getting to talk to and spend time with Mr. and Mrs. Gorr. I’ve learned so much from them.”Ashley says.
She loves listening to Mr. Gorr’s stories and talking about the Green Bay Packers with him.
During their visits, Ashley reads to Mr. Gorr. Recently, they’ve been reading about the pre-season events of the Mr. Gorr’s favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. Mr. Gorr loves this and will go on forever about football stats and the history of the Packers. The energy he has for the team is one of Ashley’s favorite things to see.
It’s been inspiring to Ashley to see true companionship in Audrey and Bill Gorr. After 40+ years of marriage, they know each other’s needs just as well as the Green Bay Packer history (and that says a lot!). There is a permanent space for Audrey’s arm as she locks hers with his.
Bill is blind, but he rarely lets anything stop him from a friendly chat, a day-trip adventure, or even reading a book. Bill has a rare from of blindness that allows him to read enlarged words on a projection screen. He loves reading mystery novels while Audrey works on sewing projects.
