Dear Wolff kids,
We are so sorry to hear of Earle’s passing and send our deposit condolences. Your family has been so special to us in the office for so many years, and it has been our pleasure to know you all and treat a good bunch of you. We miss Verna, and now are happy that Earle can be with her. Sure doesn’t make it easier on you guys, but know that you have parents with a great legacy. I loved talking airplanes with Earle, and he had better Dental jokes than anyone! With much love and admiration,
Dr Bruce Lee and Staff
