Title: How Can I Not Love You
* * * *
Cannot Touch, Cannot Hold
Cannot Be Together
Cannot Love, Cannot Kiss
Cannot Have Each other
Must Be Strong
And We Must Let Go
Cannot Say What our Hearts Must Know

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you.. here In My Arms
How Does One Walks away from all of the memories
How Do I Not Miss You When You Are Gone

Cannot Dream
Cannot share sweet and tender moments
Cannot feel how we feel
Must pretend its over
Must be brave
And we must go on
Must not say what we no longer long

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want ou Here In My Arms
How does one walks away from all of the memories
How do I not miss you When You Are Gone
How can I not love you..

Must Be Brave
And we must be strong
Cannot say what we've no longer long..

How can I not love you
What do I tell my heart
When do I not want you here In my arms
How does one walk away from all of the memories
How do I not miss you when you are gone
How can I not love you... when you are gone

I love you. I want to hold you and have you hold me. I'm going to be stumbling my way through this world without you. The darkness has descended.... you were my light, and I'm going to falter without you there with me. But I promise to try and do the best I can.
I had 10 years with you, and they were the most wonderful years of my life.... I've never been happier. You were, are, and will continue to be my soulmate, throughout time eternal.
All my love,
Eternally and Unconditionally,
Your Loving Devoted Wife,

Pam Wolff to Karl Wolf:
Well babe, 1st and 2nd weekend have come and gone. Faire is strange without you there. There is now an echo of what was your voice that could be heard half way across the grounds in the morning. And I do miss that "Hello baby" at what had been your normal lunch time.
There have been a couple of people who have asked me if you were still working at the shop, because they haven't seen you. I had expected it, so it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but they felt so bad for asking that I felt sorry for having to tell them that you were gone.
I'm starting a new tradition. For me. I'll be spending opening weekends in a different location each year. I love our usual friends, but I haven't camped with some of our other friends for so long, and some I've never had the chance to camp with at all. So that's what I'm going to do from now on.
Some of your ashes have been spread next to X's, and this coming weekend (Pirate, one of your favorites) on S
aturday one of our friends is going to honor you.
I miss you. I miss the vitality and energy that entered a room 5 seconds before you did. I miss one of the greatest best friends I could have ever hoped for.
I'm slowly realizing things here and there. For one thing, as much as I didn't want it to and couldn't imagine it doing so, time slips by and the future becomes the present. I had always been, and may continue to be a hopeful dreamer, but deep down, I know I'm also a realist. I can't avoid the fact that you're gone. That pain isn't going to be my biggest battle, though. I think loneliness will probably take that title.
Scarlett is a senior now, and that means a Govt. class. You would have been the one person that she'd listen to that could possibly have made it interesting for her.
I will always love you. But I have to learn how to love life again, on my own, for myself. I hope I can.

My brother was a loving and caring individual who had a zest for life. He had many friends and family who will miss him greatly. I know I will miss his advice and little quirky sayings. And the big brother that hugged me and let me know that everything would be fine, he was there to help me get thru it. I thank all of you who have posted on his wall, I am sure the rest of the family greatly appreciates it during this time. I will always remember my big brother as just that, my big brother. I love you JR, may the goddess know what a wonderful being she has enfolded into her caring arms.

My brother and I watched this movie once, and we both giggled at it, there was a poem, that can possibly convey some of the grief that I and my family feel in at the loss of my big brother. Here it is:

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
W.H. Auden
Not a day goes by that your not on my mind. I remember when I first saw you and marveled that I had a big brother. To me you were superman, you always will be big brother. I can't believe u r gone from us. I wish you were here to say something about the politics or big bang theory. I miss & love u ya big goofball. I'll always be your munchkin.

In honor of Karl, I found this poem (I do not have the rights to this, but it seems appropriate)...Scott Roberts

His Death by Amy Anderson
The music is alluring
All senses washed away
As you sway along
To a far and distant cave

In the company of a giant
Far greater than us all
But understanding and kind
And wise beyond all years

The wonder and the awe
Errode away the sadness
Of the great one's suffering pain
Yet he stood bravely through it all

For others have betrayed
His gentle caring touch
As the harmonious dawn
Serenades his mournful death

My spirit soars away
As awe and loyalty
Invade my soaring spirit
In the presence of the one

An explosion of all light
Of the joyness everywhere
For even though he's gone
He lingers everywhere

In the heavens
In the stars
In every living thing
But still it ends in joy
With his magic all around

His memory still eludes
In tales broad and far
For the mightiest of all
Still hovers near and far

_____5 More Minutes by Granger Smith_____
I think of my granddad in '44
Overseas fightin' in the war
He was the pilot of a B24
And father of my dad

If he hadn't made it home okay
Then I wouldn't be here today
It wasn't until he passed away
That I realized what I had
Precious time you can't have back

I wish I had 5 more minutes
One more time with him
To share a cup of coffee with him
And hear his voice again

I'd tell him that I loved him
And he would know how much I meant it
Cause you can love a lifetime
In 5 more minutes

When I think about college days
It's not just the class you take
No, it's more about the buddies you make
You'll remember all your life

And when we all finished school
One did what he was born to do
Served his country for me and you
And sacrificed his life
And we still miss him all the time

I wish I had 5 more minutes
One more time with him
To share a cup of coffee with him
And hear his voice again

I'd tell him what a friend he was
And he would know I meant it
Cause you can love a lifetime
In 5 more minutes

I drove to see my dad yesterday
When it was time to go
I changed my mind
And told him wait

Give me 5 more minutes
If that's all right with you
To share a cup of coffee with me
Hey, that's the least that I can do

I told him that I loved him
And he sure knew I meant it
Cause you can love a liftime
In 5 more minutes

It only takes 5 more minutes

The Pirate's Cove said:
It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear friend and long time crew member, Karl Wolff. Many of you know him as Lord Vandor or Dragon, but he was always Karl to us.
On behalf of The Pirates Cove, we ask that you keep his wife, Pam, his daughter Scarlet and son, Ben in your thoughts and prayers.
We will post details of the remembrances as they become available.
For now, the best way to honor him is to remember him and the things he loved most. Have a drink in his name, wear something purple, change your profile image to a dragon, watch Tim the Enchanter or Rocky Horror Picture Show, post some funny memes or eat some bacon.
Above all, the best way to remember him is to be as giving and kind to all that you meet, love your partner completely and tell them so, and make sure to laugh.
Fair winds and following seas, Karl.

From the Clan-of-Chaos site:

Dear Lord Vandor,
Karl, I still expect you to walk in the front door. The pillows still smell like you. It's like you're just out of reach, right around the corner, or in the next room. I feel you near, yet I turn and you aren't there. I miss you more today than yesterday, and I will love you forever. Things seem not quite right with you gone. I feel your absence each day, each moment. These 10 years of being married to you have been the happiest years of my life... and all BECAUSE I was married to you. I know, one day, we'll be together again. But until that day comes, my world will be very dim without you to share in the joys of life with. I love you, Eternally and Unconditionally,
Signed Pam "Amalphia" Wolff

Dear Lord Vandor,
I talked to you just the day before, about the world we lived in and where we were headed, our families, and camping. In less than a day, the world changed. I miss our discussions. I miss your soul. I miss your zeal for what ever you had your mind on. I am proud to have your hand in things that changed my life, your friendship, and companionship. You stood alone and took on the world and there will never be another with the wit and drive that you wielded. Cheers mate. Till we meet again.
Signed Sir Basic

Dear Lord Vandor,
You are the pivot point of many of my favorite memories. Between you, Amalphia & Scarlett, you always made me feel like part of your family. You were at my induction and saved me from an Amtgard auction at TRF. But most of all, you always made me laugh from the bottom of my toes & cry with joy. One of my fondest memories is captured on film, a picture of you and my daughter. Thank you for the good, the ugh and for just being you no matter what. Until we raise a horn again.
Signed Larkspur

Dear Lord Vandor,
This morning I got to work and looked up and saw the pretty purple morning sky, I thought of you and smiled and know you are looking down on us.
Signed Shahara BlackBeard

Dear Lord Vandor,
You are one of those rare ones. The special ones. The ones that touch more hearts than they ever realize. I first met you right after my divorce when I was at rock bottom. You didn't let me brood but offered me a drink and told me to enjoy life. That night I did. You gave me a laugh and a smile that night when I desperately needed it. You reminded me then and every time we met that life was meant to be enjoyed. Thank you for that Brother.
Signed Teach

Dear Lord Vandor,
I remember the smile on your face when I gave you Shaun's armor I made that he left behind. I remember your long hair flowing in the wind as you came walking down the alley at New Excal wearing it with a huge cheesy grin on your face thankful you finally had your own armor. I remember every unqueenly and how you stood up so proud doing all you can to entertain the audience. You put so much into the contest and nearly won several times. I remember every day walking by the Pirates Cove specifically to see you standing there, talk to you for a few and get that wonderful warm hug you always had waiting for me. Those will be missed so much this year. No matter what you enjoyed life and always had a smile and a hug to share and I'll miss both. I'm sure each day I pass by the Pirates Cove in the future I'll still see you there. At least out of the corner of my eye you will be standing there in all your pirate glory. You will always have a special place in my memories and will always be remembered my friend. Miss you so much and I know your up there with all our other fallen brethren sharing beers and telling camp fire stories. In love and light and many thanks for all the wonderful memories.
Signed Vamptasia

Dear Lord Vandor,
Over the years, we have laughed, and screamed with and at each other. It is difficult to see how everything will be, at fair, in CHAOS, or in general. Until the next time,
Signed Norath Tovaar

Dear Lord Vandor,
I miss you... Your snarky come backs when I'm being bitchy... Your Cheshire cat grin when you know I need someone to talk to (without me saying a word)... Your strict voice that would let me know I was treading into forbidden territory...and your pissiness and then acceptance when I danced all over that " forbidden territory", You've kept a fire under my ass and been a constant guidepost for as long as I've known you. Your love for life and that damn sparkle in those smiling eyes have gotten me through things that only you and I know... and after all these finally talk me out of my lingerie..and then you leave. I still don't know what I'm going to tell Gypsy when she makes her way over to the ship to hug her Dragon. Thank you, for showing me that money doesn't mean shit..and that as long as you have your love and your family that's all that truly matters. I think of you every day...and keep waiting for a silly message to pop up around the usual time. I LOVE YOU fucker...and always will...even during your diva moments. So,what do they wear on the other side, is it flattering? No worries, I'm sure your ass looks great. ((hugs))

I was at the courthouse Friday a week ago needing to get a certified copy of my marriage license to get my name changed in Norway. When I was writing the date down, I remembered that it was your birthday, June 22nd. I looked at the original marriage license in front of me on the counter and there is your signature for when you performed the ceremony for Dennis and me on November 2nd 2003. I got choked up and told the lady at the court house what a wonderful friend you are and how Dennis and I always made it by the Pirates Treasure together to see you on our anniversary weekend and you would tell people that Dennis and I were your first. So many great memories. I miss you Karl.

Vampy (RI Rainer) said:
Feels like a lifetime since we first met. So many great memories running through my head. I wish I would have came by to see you more often this year but I will cherish all the memories of all the times we did share. The armor you wore so proudly when I gave it to you and the smile upon your face for being able to join your fellow armor clad warriors. The laughter we shared at camp that one weekend when just me and you showed pre new Excal to clean camp and the fun we had hanging out. The multiple years you where in the Unqueenly a crazy Idea that grew into some of the greatest memories with you. All these memories will keep you alive every day. I miss you lots and hope your family will find peace soon and the good memories will laughter and celebration of the great life you shared with us. Much love to Pam and Scarlet and all your family and friends. Take care my friend you will and are missed dearly.

Hyle Owens said:
I may have forgotten the day we met but among the things I'll never forget are how we met, how you helped introduce me to faire, that trip to Pennsylvania for a pb game where I ended up playing a ammo hauler standing there next to you in the final battle, the times we've shared at more camps, bars, and parties than I can even recall. Give our love to those who have preceded you and watch over us that remain. I will miss you, brother.

Cassandra Coleman Mennone said:
Pam I am sooooo sorry to hear that Karl(Dragon) has gone on ahead of us!! He was such a good friend and silly character! Pirates cove will seem darker and TRF will be way quieter without him to cause laughter!!! Hugs to you!!!! Blessed Be!

Shawnda Taylor said:
I've been wondering why I haven't seen 5 gazillion posts from Karl lately! He is definitely sorely missed. My fondest memory of Karl is from Mannheim High School in Germany, 1987. We were dating, and I had gotten into a fight with some girl I didn't even know for a statement I didn't even make & had a fractured collarbone. Karl had bought me a giant stuffed bear, and rode on the bus carrying that bear so that I could get it home. He spent the next two weeks carrying all my books, meeting me at the end of every class to carry them to the next class for me. Oh, and he pulverized the boy who spread the rumor that started the fight. He was one of a kind. I was lucky to have been able to count him as my friend.
I learned today that one of my oldest & dearest friends from high school & beyond has passed away. He was one of a kind. I will miss his wit, his 5 gazillion daily FB posts, his infectious smile that could light up a room, his zest for life, and the mischievious glint in his eye when he was getting ready to run mental & verbal circles around anyone & everyone. RIP Karl Wolff. My heart goes out to you Pam Pinhero Wolff, every little broken piece.

And a mighty roar was heard from the hall, echoing into Eternity... Telling those mighty warriors to beware, for the greatest of them all is coming. Blessed Be and safe journey, my Friend.

As the gathering of the warriors is begun, we, the saddened ones, hear the clarion call to the halls of heroes. It is a sad sad day for alot of people that feel cheated out of a friend/brother/father/husband, We are not nor will ever be again with out a blue dragon watching over us all! He is loved and will be missed. RAISE YOUR GLASSES HIGH GIVE THIS MAN THE SALUTE HE DESERVES AS HE WOULD SALUTE US!!!

Matthew Flores said:
Karl, much love to you brother. It has truly been an honor to call you my friend/my brother. You, Pam and my lil'Scarlett are the shiznit!! You have helped/shared so much with so many with no expectation of reward. You showed me that you CAN stuff a whole bag of cheesy puffs in your mouth at once and down it with a 40oz IBC Root one shot!!! {wink} You will be missed and honnored everytime I step out onto the field or pick up my marker my friend.....vios con dios....
Much love....

I came across a piece of garb I haven't worn in a while: a purple shoulder dragon. I had at first named him Cormyran after the land of Cormyr in the Forgotten Realms setting for D&D. The fictional country has a purple dragon as part of its heraldry. I've been considering renaming him Vandor in honor of you. Miss you still, brother.

Short Fyuse said:
Even though you are now in the afterlife; where ever that may be, I know you are happy. I've made my sappy post and I think that this shouldn't be like that one. Because I know you are up there with Ice and Christan and X amoung everyone else. I know that you are there laughing and watching over us and all our sappy crazy posts on your wall. I also know there will be people who will claim to have known you when they didn't which will be the ones who will be ignored this year (lol). I can tell you though that this year when my father enters the unqueenly (LOL) no matter if he wins or not we will have a crown for you. We love you and don't worry ;P everyone will drink enough Loki for you too.

I keep telling myself iam dreaming and this isnt happening. You are greatly missed already. Rest In Peace Uncle Vandor. Love ys bunches

Pam; I am so sorry to hear.. I just found out today. Karl was a very wonderful caring person. He was my 1st boyfriend, 1st kiss, 1st boy I snuck out with to go see a movie (only for my parents to show up). I wish I was much closer.. Our family loves you and is in our prayers at this time. If there is anything we can do for you from here please let us know. Bison Pride... Love and Miss you Karl..

Rest in Peace Karl! You were not only a friend from way back in Jersey, but you were also a brother Master Mason! The Celestial Lodge above is enriched with your presence! You will be missed my friend!

Shameless O'Grady said:
I remember one of the very first times i hung out with pam and Karl, out behind the EB at TRF probably about 5-6 years ago. I still remember the look of delight on karls face as he revealed his under garments to this guy he hadnt known very long as well as being one of the few times in my life that I didnt have a shameless comment to make. I will miss one of the few people who could take my wise assery and flip it back on me. I will miss the man who could clap me on the shoulder and make me feel like i didnt know what i was talking about. I will miss the man that no matter what i did was still there for me. I didnt have enough time with you brother. Keep a seat warm for me at the feast hall i look forward to the day when I can tip a cup back with you again.

Amanda Delaet said:
Uncle Karl is like the wind. Can't be seen but can always be felt. I love you so much Aunt Pam. I am so sorry. I am always here for you.

Elaine Frederick said:
I so wish that i could be there for you. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I miss him so much. Simply knowing that there is a world without him in it makes it a much sadder place. I love you guys.

Cliff Camacho said:
I miss your posts. Stupid facebook has become such wonderful tool because you get to see things about people that gives little bits in there life.

There was at once a blinding flash of light......
The Great Dragon heaved a long and doleful sigh,
And closing his eyes, laid down his mighty head....
Low, mournful howls issued forth from hill to hill,
Rolling through mountains, meadows and forests....
The Hawks screamed and shrieked with great despair....
All the lowborn animals ran, chattering, and hid....
The Great Dragon is no more.... the Great Dragon is no more..

I am crying for you today. You weren't ready. I am sad.
I ♥ you.

RIP Karl Wolff
I've been struggling all weekend with wrapping my mind around the loss of this very kind soul. He was like a brother to many, a friend to some, a great stepfather for Ben and Scarlette and a soul mate to his lovely wife, Pam Pinhero Wolff. His absence will be felt in each of the communities he lived his life within.

Taken too soon - and unpredictably - I will miss him. Pam and the kids - I feel so bad that there is nothing I can do to help because of my current health. Please know that I love you all and hope you find comfort from the many others who are available right now. M

Christina Hicks said:
I have been searching for the right words but there are no right words. Karl was a friend. I don't remember when I met him exactly because he was always there.
Karl you have made me want to gauge my eyes out (hooters, need I say more). You are probably the only person that has made laugh in the morning before going to work at faire (he was circling the butt can saying "oh look a castle" every revolution. He was a goldfish). You proved every day true love exist. Pam is the most cherished person I know and if my husband shows me half the love Karl showed Pam I will consider myself very lucky.
You are missed terribly.

Charles Paschal said:
I met my dear friend 15- maybe 18 years ago. I have partied with him. Talked, eaten, visited lodge. Always I felt welcome, wanted and appreciated. He had that way about him. I remember when my Julie died he made it a point to come forward, talk spiritual talk, discuss the unfairness of life. He helped me to understand how she was now in a happier place. Well Karl, I envy you as you and Julie are probably singing dirty ditties and tossing back a tankard. I will miss you my friend. My brother. Life isn't fair.

Nancy Wallace Dillard said:
Missing talking to you tonight. You always found a way to cheer me up when I was hurting, your words were uplifting, or you would tell me to shut up and quit sulking because there were people out there that hurt worse lol. Or, you would let me vent then ask me if I was done so we could continue playing whatever game we were playing lol.

Karl -
I haven't posted here in a long time, since I heard the news. I haven't known what to say. I still don't know what to say. I guess all I can say is "Thank you" for having touched my life, because it was good to know you. Even when we disagreed.
I'll see you in the Summerlands.

Christy Eskew Morris said:
I did not know Dragon as well as most of you; but even so he made a lasting impression on me. I was so impressed with how friendly and welcoming he was to me and I will not forget his amazing spirit. I though of this quote because I know many of us will be crying tonight...myself included.
"Once when his uncles asked him what gift he wanted for his nameday; he begged them for a dragon. 'It wouldn't need to be a big one; it could be little, like I am.' His uncle Tygett said, 'The last of the dragons died...lad' That had seemed so monstrously unfair that the boy had cried himself to sleep that night."

Patrick McClellan said:
Karl... Dragon... One of the truest champions of respect, sportsmanship, and of all the qualities and decency desired in a representative of humankind that I have had the good fortune to not only know, but to break bread with and call "friend." I cannot begin to express how utterly shocked I am at hearing this news, as I thought dragons' lives were measured in aeons, not in the short spans we humans call 'life.' You will be truly, sadly missed by many, as you have touched countless lives (and certainly for the better).

To Pam and the rest of Karl's family, know that your loss and pain are felt and shared by many hearts tonight. We cannot take it from you, but we are here to help you through it if we can. God bless and keep you all, and Karl, I know dragons already have their wings, but I'm certain you'll be receiving a pair of a different design this day.
Watch over us, Dragon. We'll look upward and hope to meet you again one day.

Jim Hague said:
Karl, I've known you since high school. You were a gutsy guy in football, and I know how much you love your family and country. You'll be serving at a better place now. God bless you and your family. My thoughts and prayers go out to them at this time of mourning. You will be missed.

Jackson John said:
You will be missed my brother. I am sure you made a stop by the rainbow bridge and have a feline escort now. I could say many things about the great times we shared but I will limit this to a brief farewell. I am sure there is a special place for a man that understands cats. You can tell a lot about a man by how he treats women and cats.

DeDe Sullivan said: I will always remember you said I looked like "Stockard Channing" the first time we ever met. You have always been so kind to everyone and I especially admired how you professed your love to your wife Pam daily on FB. She had your heart forever and it ALWAYS showed. I loved seeing you at TRF's Pirate's Cove, it will not be the same without you. You will be missed...RIP!!

i miss my dearest friend. you married chris and i when we decided to elope, best day ever for us. because of all of the lives that you have touched while you were here, you will live on forever, just like the dragon that you are. save a seat for me in Valhalla brother, we will meet you there in our own time. Until we meet again- Rachel McCorkle aka Admiral Jade

To my friend and brother, you've influenced more lives than you ever realized. You are loved, appreciated, respected and will always be remembered. This is not a good bye brother, but merely a so long until we meet again.

You were always kinda, witty, and certainly crazy and you made me feel welcome in our family. There was always a hello and a bear hug when I stopped in or just when we passed in the lane. Karl my dear brother and friend thank you for giving another a home, a friend, and a brother in arms in our home. Rest in peace brother I know you are sitting in the longhouse cheering and enjoying your peace. I will miss you, All Father be with you and yours always.

I waited a few days before posting here, because I was pretty sure there was nothing I could say that was going to come out even remotely intelligent. As I sat, perusing your photos this evening, I was pretty sure I found the words that have escaped me since I heard the news. So,here goes nothing..

The evolution of our friendship has been a strange one, and it is a wild ride that I wouldn't give up for the world. From the time you watched over me at Ren Faire, calming me down, cheering me up, making the kind of jokes only you could the time in Dallas that you and I wandered into the darkness taped as third faction, and got shot to hell by my own paintball team..and finally, to our recent late night talks when insomnia was getting the best of me. You've always been there, always had the ability to make things right in that moment.

Karl, your friendship offered the kind of companionship that is rare, and hard to find, but once you've attained it, you never let go of it.

There are few things I regret in this life time. But I regret that I could not see you one last time in the presence of your lovely wife, who I know made you shine even more than you were normally given to shining.

In light of a private conversation we had recently, I have a quote for you, and those who love you.

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice." -Cherokee Expression

I believe you did that. And more.
You are loved, Karl. And I cannot wait to see you again.

The Pagan Moon looks not at death as punishment
The Pagan Moon looks not at life as eternity
The Pagan Moon knows that when our bodies die
In the Summerland perfection awaits

The Pagan Moon does not shed tears
The Pagan Moon feels no sympathy
She smiles on those who's spirits soar
To be with her once again

And so my friend your time has come
The world feels your loss and they grieve
But I will raise my glass to you tonight and smile at
The Pagan Moon

I met Karl many years ago. At first, I didn't understand him, then I stopped trying, because he was just that good a guy that you didn't need to understand him. Karl, or Dragon, as many folks knew him was the man who made everyone feel welcome. If you were new to a viper game, he was likely to be the first person (other than Viper obviously) who's name you learned. He was just that big a personality. He was a stand up friend, baller, fire breather, and all around positive guy to be around. You'll be missed, from an old friend that should have seen you last week and didn't. rest in peace.

I love you to death..I know we only saw each other every once in a while but you were always my family. For the last 10 years you and Pam Pinhero Wolff were always there for me when I needed you. Just last week we had one of the best conversations ever..I knew you were special the minute my little 1 year old Victoria loved you that you were an amazing person... We always had so much fun no matter what the situation presented to us..Thank you for gracing me with your presence and letting me have a little piece of you in my life... Love you for ever.. ~Kimi xoxoxox

I guess I need to cut back on the work hours, it's sad when a friend from HS passes and I just find out. May God bless you and your lovely wife Pam. Pam, I pray you find the comfort and strength of family, friends and God in this time of mourning. I am truly sorry for your loss. He was one of the good ones. :~( @};-----

This morning I awoke at Cub Scout camp to the very bad news that one of our pirate brethren, and a very good friend of mine, Mr. Karl Wolff has gone to Fiddler's Green. I have been crying on and off all day and I keep thinking about his wife, Pam, who was out of town laying her father to rest when this happend. I can't even imagine what this dear lady and friend must be going through right now.
I ask please, if you are the praying type or believe in any higher power to please add my friend Pam Pinhero Wolff to your prayer list, light a candle, send healing energies her way.
We have lost a dear loved one in our Rennie community. Pirates Cove will never be the same without his shining smile and good conversation.
Rest in peace Karl, and know you are deeply loved and missed. ♥

We haven't seen you since the memorial for another friend of ours last year. I kicked myself yesterday for not finding time to make it to renfest last year and see you. I so wanted to! But life is always busy and we always think well, there's next year's renfest. And now there's not. It's not fair that you're gone, Karl, not fair at all. We disagreed on some things, to put it mildly, LOL but it didn't matter, our friendship is what mattered and we loved each other despite our differences. You lit up rooms where ever you went, and I know you are lighting up the afterlife now. I really wish I'd gotten to see you one more time... just once more. I will love and miss you always.
You would have been amazed at the outpouring of love for you last night, Karl, so many friends of yours from different walks of life, all together to remember you. Pam, you and your family remain in our thoughts, it was good to get to hug you last night and tell you we love you.

I love you my friend. The world will definitely change without you in it. You've done so much for so many. There is a void that can never be filled.

If I cold save time in a bottle....
The first thing that I'd like to do...
Is to save every day until eternity passes away just to spend them with you...
This is just unreal!!!! Glad to have met such an Inspirational person!!! R.I.P Dragon!!

Michael McDane Harris said (after the Crooked Ferrett):
My bank called me this morning to report "unusual debt card activity". We raised a bunch of money Saturday night and apparently a big chunk of it was mine :)
Sorry you had to leave Karl, I will miss you, and always remember you.

In Memory of Karl "Lord Vandor" Wolff
Many years ago when I first began to wear garb to Faire Karl was one of the first people that befriended me. We had some interesting conversations as time passed and I learned a lot from him as I progressed on my path. Over the years I have been at many weddings he has presided over and watched him work in may different modes and if I had not been able to get the High Priestess from my old coven to wed the Lady McGowan and myself I was going to see if Karl would do it. I saw Karl in many forms over the years and the only time I ever saw him upset was when he didn't win the Un-Queenly this past year, Karl I will miss you terribly as I know many will, Peace be to you and may the Great Mother take you to her breast to comfort and heal you my friend.
