  1. ;( Mr. Gaines will always be remembered! Nothing negative to say at all! R.I.P. to an amazing man who made going to an HBCU seem like you were home!

    • No, Funky Dineva is correct. I am related to his “wife”, whose name, of course, was not published in his obit but they were “married” for more than 20 years and we considered him as a member of the family. All I can say is that when I hear people argue against gay marriage, I always think of the two of them because they definitely loved each other and had a long term, loving relationship.
