I have never met Mr. Gaines, but I have two of his books, A Lesson Before Dying and A Gathering of Old Men. I enjoyed reading them both because he was a wonderful writer. I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort his family as you mourn the loss of this great writer.

To the family: I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses in your area and I'm writing to share a brief message of comfort from the Bible. God promises to remove all suffering from the earth. Revelation 21:4 says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Please visit www.jw.org for more information. Deepest condolences, Tameka B
