To Antoinette, Mother Holmes and the entire Gaines / Holmes family.

Zenobia, Jennifer and I wish to extend our love and sincerest sympathy to you in the home-going of your beloved Anthony Gaines.

Anthony was an outstanding organist who unselfishly used his extraordinary musical talent to the glory of God. He will be greatly
missed by you, his New Friendship church family, and gospel
music lovers throughout the city, and the region.

We pray that you find comfort and strength in the Word of God knowing that He is our refuge and strength... a very present
help in times of trouble.

May God richly bless and keep you in His care.

To the Gaines and Homes Family you have our deepest sympathy in the death but heavens gain of your beloved family member. We share in your sympathy in his passing. It is not a lost because he knew God for himself and will now receive what God promised Eternal Life. God saw him getting tired and held his hand and called him home. He loaned him to you for thirty two years and came back and claimed his own. We will miss seeing him on Sunday playing that organ like no one else could but he's smiling at us saying God rescued me. Love all of you Good night Anthony.
