Judy I received your husband's funeral card today. Thank you for letting me know after I had mailed you my Mom's funeral card (from December 13th). I was so sad to see that Mr. Gain had died suddenly back in January. I remember suggesting that he get checked out for his heart not long after his brother died suddenly. I can still remember being there with the both of you when he saw that doctor which must have been in 1994. I now work as a RN in Cardiac Rehab and realize how hereditary heart disease is. I have taken care of several 30 year old's who have had a heart attacks who have a family history of heart disease. In this memorial video I loved seeing the pictures of Mr. Gain holding his Grandchildren since he had such a big smile in those pictures. His baby picture was precious sitting on that car. Your wedding picture was very nice. It was nice to see the pictures of you both when you were younger with Eric and Darren which I remember seeing all of you that way (when I was a teen spending Summers in Philippi with my Grandparents). I love the picture of Mr. Gain reading the book to Sammy and Whitney as children. ( I can still remember playing in the sandbox with them at that age). I am sure it is nice for you to have that great family picture with Mr. Gain with Christina, Erica, Heather and Rachel and their children. So I send my sympathy to all of you. I know your husband/father/grandfather passing onto Heaven will leave a void in your lives. Mr Gain died too young at age 77 especially when I think of the 90 year old woman who I get the pleasure to take her blood pressure when she exercises in our Forever Fit gym twice a week. I know you are probably glad that you captured so many pictures of Mr. Gain holding his grandchildren with a great smile on his face!
