“Happy 66th Birthday, Pop,” Wolf prefaced the heartfelt tweet. “I wish I could give you the biggest hug and celebrate it with you. I love and miss you so much it hurts. I don’t even know how to put it into words.”
“I’ve been doing my best to hold it together, but g——-t it’s really tough being here without you,” 狼, 29, continued.
Wolf then followed up with a second tweet that read, “Not a second has gone by where you haven’t been on my mind, and today will be no different.”
“Love and miss you beyond words, Pop ❤,” Wolf concluded.
The two tweets were accompanied by candid home videos from 1994. The first video features Eddie playfully capturing Wolf in his oversized t-shirt, while the second video features “Wolfie and daddy” hanging out on Christmas Eve.
