I doubt that Wu's family will see much of what's posted here, but for the record, Wu was a remarkably dedent guy, spending much of his time to allow all of us to share the one common thing that all brought us here.
Years of dedicated service, personal time and sacrifice are things that go unnoticed by people who simply drop in for their daily fix, though those of us who run sites either for business or pleasure know how consuming it can be at times.
My genuine condolences got out to his family, his friends, both in the real world & online.
Wu, a.k.a Alex was a pioneer in the online foot community and one way or another, his legacy will continue for a very long time. Afterall, his selflessness has touched each and every one of us who has visited his pages over the years.
A good man will not be forgotten and I wish to publicly thank Wu and his memory for everything he has ever done for us in his own quiet ways.
Very sad news indeed ... I have been around this forum for more then 10 years (finally got around to registering back in 2005 I think) and Wu's Feet Links was and still is definitely the best foot fetish message board / community out there ... RIP Alex/Wu hope this site you built lives on for a long time to come in your honor

When people started to speculate as to what might have happened to Wu, I was hoping for the best but I was fearing the worse. Now the worse has reared its ugly head.
I had to turn my TV off as soon as I read the news and reading the reaction from everyone in here extending their condolences.
I know someone who has met Wu personally. He talked about how cool and professional he was during the short time that they hung out with each other in Virginia. At first I thought he was joking, but considering who he was I had no reason to believe he was making that up.
Another time, Wu sent me an email asking if I would be interested in joining in his fantasy football league. Now is not the time for me to comprehend as to why I declined his invitation. Looking back on it, I should have joined. I guess something like that is so easy to say after the fact that someone has passed, but there you go.
I don't remember how I first came across this site, but I do remember being a long time lurker before I finally decided to join in on the conversations by becoming a member. This forum is the place where all the forks on the road converge as one, a place where like-minded people share thoughts, ideas, photos and videos with each other.
Wu will be greatly missed. The show must go on in his honor, the legacy he created will live on.
Thank you, Wu, for everything.

He asked me to join his fantasy football leagues a few times too. I always told him to grab others as I hated running multiple teams in different leagues. I, too wish I would have now, in hindsight. He and I would always exchange banter about my Ravens and his Redskins. We lived about 50 miles apart. I should have tried to meet up with him, but I just felt like he liked his offline life kept separate.
I logged on to this site with a message about his passing and my heart felt like it dropped.Alex/wu created a online foot playground that is like no other on the internet.When I first joined this site I was new to this whole "online fetish community thing" and this site took me with open arms.I was in my late teens/early 20's and just getting comfortable with my fetish in the "real world" and anytime I felt like I was stumbling a lil bit,this site always lifted me up.i just want to say thank you wu,may you rest in peace....

Wu put in such an incredible amount of time and effort on this site to the great benefit of the entire community. He was a friend to all models and webmasters no matter what their affiliation. A man of few words, but consistent work ethic, posting the regular updates and contributions like clockwork for over 15 years. I've been browsing Wu'sFeetLinks since 1998, and it is still one of the central hubs to this day. That's quite an achievement considering how few sites are still around from that era. He was a friend and a fan on the handful of occasions that we talked. His death comes as a shock and is very untimely indeed as he was still a relatively young guy. The days we take for granted are but fleeting moments in time, but he will not be forgotten. Thank you for everything Alex,
