I worked with Mr. Wolfe for many years at the company he and Mr. Brennan formed. He was my boss and my friend, a man of integrity and strength. I’m sure he and “Bookie” are smiling down on us. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Mr. Wolfe has been a wonderful landlord and friend for so many years, he will truly be missed. I was so shocked to see that he had passed as I saw him a couple of weeks ago and he was doing great and looked great.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.

Best Regards,

Jane
