Wolf shared a sweet photo of himself and his late father. He wrote, “One year. You fought so hard for so long, but you were still taken away. It’s just so unfair. I’m not ok. I don’t think I’ll ever be ok. There’s so much I wish I could show you. So many things I wish I could share with you. I wish I could laugh with you again. I wish I could hug you again. I miss you so much it hurts.”

Wolf continued, “I’m trying to do my best here without you, but it’s really f****** hard. I hope you’re still proud. I love you with all of my heart, Pop. Watch over me.” Eddie passed away after a long battle with cancer that went on for almost 20 years. He had throat cancer but then it spread to other areas, including his brain.
