Dear Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,

I just received a copy of the Furman magazine and was shocked to read the news of the death of Dr. Morgan. I was a Spanish major at Furman, in my third year, when Dr. Morgan arrived. I was also taking French courses and found my way into his class. He was a brilliant, sincere, thoughtful, creative, energetic, and motivating professor -- dragging me into more French coursework than I had intended to take. He even asked me to serve as a teaching assistant for one of his entry level French classes, writing and enacting skits to help beginning students develop their conversational skills. I thoroughly enjoyed learning from him and helping him teach others. I am grateful that I got to be a part of his earliest ventures in teaching. Dr. Morgan was a tremendous asset to Furman and had a reputation that extended far beyond the classroom. My heart is heavy with the news of his untimely death, and yet, I am not surprised to read of the courage he showed during his illness and the influence he had on so many who knew him as a teacher, a friend, a colleague, a classmate. How blessed you were to know him as a son. My deepest condolences to you and all your family and friends who continue to grieve.

Sincerely,

Alice Shepley

Dear Mrs and Mr Morgan,

I am sorry to be so late in bringing my condolences to you but I have just read in a Latin journal that your son David had passed away. I had met with him twice on occasion of living Latin meetings in Madrid, Spain in 1998 and in Maredsous abbey, Belgium in 2000 and even though I had no opportunity to see him after I had kept a very nice memory of him and I had regularly occasion of hearing about him through other Latin friends. I had been quite impressed by his mastering of many languages and cultures, and particularly by the fact that he was able to speak French almost as a native speaker and knew French history and literature far better than many French people. But all this was nothing compared with his human qualities and his ability to make friends with everyone so easily; he was this kind of person who makes you feel you have been knowing him for years just after a five minutes conversation. I understand it is a terrible lost for his entire family and pray for you and all his loved ones.

Hello Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,

David was a very good friend of mine at Vanderbilt Law School. Sadly, I had lost touch with him since he left the practice of law. I just recently searched for his name online hoping to reconnect with him and learned of his passing earlier this year. The fact that I would be trying to locate him after all these years demonstrates what a good friend he was and how much he meant to all of us at Vandy.

I was a Spanish major at Furman so my interactions with Dr. Morgan were limited and I really only knew him through his very positive reputation on campus as a wonderful professor and man. I also took French while at Furman and had the good fortune to have Dr. Morgan substitute one day of our class. After that one memorable class, I scoured the catalog for more classes I could take that were taught by Dr. Morgan, hoping to have more exposure to this engaging professor. I'm sure I am not the only student who, even with a brief interaction, felt profoundly impacted by Dr. Morgan. I am so sory to hear of his loss and know that the university is changed by his absence.
