I was a student of Dr. Morgan-Bernard's at WSU for the past 2 years. She was one of my favorite professors ever! She was always kind, caring, and helped me in so many ways. She had the cutest outfits with matching jewelry and shoes. I commented many times on how nice she looked and she said she loved to accessorize! You could hear her many bracelets jingling from down the hallway. She was someone you could talk to for advice

My deepest condolences to Lynne's friends and family. Dr. Lynne Morgan-Bernard is the professor who has made the largest impact on me as an educator. She has shown me how to be understanding, compassionate, and to generate a passion and love for reading in the classroom. I hope I can make the impact that she has made for me for just one student.

My deepest condolences to Lynne's family. Lynne was a wonderful woman. She was compassionate and kind with a great sense of humor. As a colleague and a teacher, she was committed to her students and to the RLL(Reading, Language, and Literature) Program at WSU. She was so very smart! I first met Lynne when she was a doctoral student at WSU and it was my pleasure to work with her as a colleague over these last couple of years. Rest in peace, Lynne. You will certainly be missed but your legacy will endure.

My mom was an amazing person. She was so strong and resilient yet gentle and compassionate. I'm not sure how to summarize 34 years of memories. She would go through hell and high water for her family. She loved her grandchildren more than anything and they love her so much. My daughter would chant NANNA NANNA NANNA whenever we would be on our way to see her and light up whenever she would walk into the room. My mom was
