I was lucky to meet Bernie in the 1980,s while he was touring in Japan with some mutual friends and from then on it was a long lasting friendship.
Judie,Bernie and Bassel invited me to stay with them in Plainfield and Judie and Bernie stayed with me in Tokyo.
He guided my son when he was learning the drums and my son Michael got to Jam with Bernie in Tokyo when he was only 13 years old and something he still talks about today..Bernie was not only a Musician but had a beautiful heart and Soul and think about him all the time..Until we meet again my friend X

There will never be a funkier man on the keys. Long live the Woo! Thank you for the incredible music.

Having the pleasure of growing up in Plainfield and as a youth following the works of Bernie, Bootsy, Funkadelic and Parliament. Hanging out at Steve's Record shop getting the latest and greatest of the P funk activities was very educational. We had our P funk study sessions almost on a daily bases. Certain things can not be said here. But the gifts Bernie and Funkadelic gave us will always hold a special place in our hearts as the music helped shape challenges we all had to face. Thank you Dr. Worrell.

Thank you Dr. Worrell for all the great music and memories that you gave to me and so many of my generation during the P-Funk movement. I learned a great love for rock, funk, soul, jazz and every other genre of music, because your work helped to open my mind and spirit to the gift you so generously gave. You will be missed, but I listen to your music, forever.

What an honor it was to have met you and to have had the chance to talk to you when you played a show at our club in Erie PA on Valentine's Day several years ago. I still remember our conversation and what a kind and loving person you were. I was a fan of Parliament as a teenager(and to this day)...one of my very first albums. You were happy to sign my albums and pose for a picture. Thank you for the music and the memories. Peace and Love.
I've spent many days and nights studying you. Whenever I speak of Pfunk, I mention you. Thank you for all the love you gave. Peace

Bernie, you will forever be one of the most special people I was blessed to have in my life. From the time I was a little girl, sitting at your keybord singing 'the sun will come out tomorrow', to having drinks with you at the bar and then the day you met my newborn son, I love you and miss you dearly. Fly high my friend.
