Happy Birthday in Heaven Eddie, I woke up this morning knowing it is someone from my childhoods birthday. I wish we could have reconnected here on Earth. I trust we will meet again on the other side. Our days at St. Adalbert's are long gone, but not the memories. I remember when we performed "Light my Fire" on stage in the school play. Catch you on the flip side my friend!

Maureen Nagelberg left a message on August 29, 2023:
Dr. Gaines was a blessing in my life. Having had extensive oral surgery and orthodontia as a child, I have always had a lot of anxiety about dentistry. I moved to Princeton 9 years ago and Dr. Gaines was recommended by a colleague. He inspired trust and confidence not only with his knowledge and skill but his patience and kindness. He always put me at ease, was a great conversationalist, and spoke lovingly of his children and their milestones over the years. Dr. Gaines greatly improved the aesthetics of my smile and I will remember him every time I see how much better it looks in photos. I will miss him dearly and share my deepest condolences with his wonderful staff in Lawrenceville as well as the Gaines family.

Ed (and Lori) were always gracious hosts whether it be a backyard pool party, Thanksgiving in Vermont, Christmas in Colts Neck, or an evening sailing on the bay. Many would agree he loved tailgating before the Giants games. We all have great memories and will miss him dearly.
