I still think of him often.

I just found out about Dr. Morgan's passing. In shock. One of the best professors I have ever had. And such a gentle soul. He leaves such an amazing legacy. Words are just not adequate for how many lives he touched! Wow!

I came across this guest book tonight as I happened to be thinking about the loss of Dr. Morgan and decided to share my regrets of his early passing. I was a senior Spanish major the first year that Dr. Morgan was at Furman, and so I never had the opportunity to take a class with Dr. Morgan, but I consulted with him extensively as I was considering applying to law school, and ultimately followed in his footsteps to Vanderbilt Law School. I found his counsel at the time I was making this major life decision very compelling, and I often thought of him over the years as I faced the challenges I encountered in pursuing my legal career that went far less smoothly than I could have ever anticipated as I sat in his office on various occasions discussing whether or not law school was the right decision for me. I ended up on the West Coast unexpectedly and never had the chance to follow up with him, much to my regret. I was quite shocked to read about his passing in the Vanderbilt Law magazine that alumni receive, and incredibly saddened by his passing at such a young age. I wish I had had the opportunity to thank him for all his help with applying to law school, and for sharing all his thoughts about why he left the practice of law. I've been practicing law now for 16 years, and I've managed against all odds to build an international practice as I had set out to do originally and am even finally starting to pick up new prospects from the Spanish-speaking world, but I understand very well exactly why he left the practice law and from time to time reflect on the strength of character that it took to make such a decision, certainly when he was on a path in the profession that so many others aspired to reach. The practice of law is not an easy profession to pursue and it kills the spirit and soul of many along the way who get trapped in jobs that they hate. He was a remarkable person, and his departure is a tremendous loss to the Furman community and all the lives he touched.

Not many days have passed during this year that I haven't thought of some memory of my friendship with David--from 1979 in Spartanburg, through the Vanderbilt years, trips to NYC, and in 2010 at Furman. "Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh." You are missed. --Susan Moss Stanley
