The news affected me in a way that I didn't expect, especially considering the fact that I hadn't seen Gaines in a couple of years. But that goes to show you the profound effect that he had on people. I've spent today recalling times spent with Gaines that I hadn't thought of in a while. And all of those memories made me smile or laugh. He will be missed and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.
