Wolfie was an amazing human being, a hero to me. Physically small, unassuming, and frail, he was also kind, wise, generous and bright of mind and heart.

We miss you Wolfgang and thank you for blessing us with your friendship!

I met Wolfgang only once just a few months ago, and even in this brief encounter I realized just how magical he was. His spirit will live on in all of the nature and people that he touched.

My condolences to Wolfgang's fortunate friends and dedicated circle of caregivers. My prayer is that you will continue to be blessed by your association with Wolfgang, and that, through you, the larger world will also continue to benefit from Wolfgang's beautiful sojourn among us.

The Eco-philosophy community misses you Wolfgang. Now more than ever the world needs your truth.

Wolfgang was a blessing to our community and our species. It was an honor to know him. ~Jason

I will always have fond memories of Wolfgang at Wise Roots. My Dad considered him his friend and now they both are gone, resting in garden heaven. Thanks to all who took such wonderful care of him in his last days.

I will miss seeing Wolfgang basking in the sun, patient, in the garden. I know you will miss him more.
