Thank you, Bernie for providing much of the soundtrack to my youth, and so many happy memories. You're joining quite an ensemble up there...I know Heaven's gonna be real funky now.

Dear Great Purple Spirit! You touched and graced us here on earth and beyond with your funkiness, joy and kindness. I feel especially blessed to have been alive during your 72 year sojourn on the planet.... As you dropped this mortal coil, you now are the infinite colors of all harmonies, melodies that stretch across the cosmos. R.I.P. Brother Worrell

No way to describe how the loss feels I'm just grateful to Dr Woo for more than simply the music but also the example of being so humble and kind in the face of his greatness.

The day before his transition, I was suddenly moved to listen to Parliament's "Aqua Boogie" and "Theme From The Black Hole," particularly to hear Bernie's phat moog bass lines. Today I now believe my urge to hear those grooves was Dr. Worrell waving farewell before his ascension. Thank you so very much, dear BW, for enhancing my life of listening here on earth. Much Love and everlasting peace.

I don't remember when I listened "Bernie" first with Parliament-Funkadelic, but with Praxis, I discovered an extraordinary artist, since I became almost a French fan .
I could never forget that date, since it's the birthday of one of my childs.
My thoughts to his family, may he rest in peace.
