Not sure what to say?

I worked with Dr. Wu back in the 80's @ St. Mary's Hospital, Dr. Wu was a joy to know and to work with. Will truly be missed.

I remember him as a sweet and gentle man. He was a teacher to me at Truman in 1989- 1990 when I was doing a surgical internship. I remember he gave me a Chinese coin purse for Christmas. I also remember him saying in surgery, "You be the hands and I be the brain." What a tremendous life lived.

Dr Wu was a pleasure to work with and always was willing to help explain something I did not understand. He and Frankie were so kind and very thoughtful people. He was a great physician and person.

The Wu family has been a part of our lives for nearly 50 years. He was my mother's neurosurgeon and he and Frankie became our family,graciously inviting us into their home or farm for so many holidays. My memories remain riding Milton's pony and catching catfish in the "haunted" lake; Finding their Siamese cat asleep on the television while watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang next to their Christmas tree; Playing records and pool with Chris and Billy and watching with great expectation...

I am grateful for the life of Dr. Wu. Thanks to his service and to the service of others in our armed forces, my family and I have been able to lead our lives in freedom and peace.
