I am so sadden to hear about Anthony. I enjoyed his music so much I just loved to see him play the piano. My prayers are with his family and the Gaithers . I will surley miss him playing for the Gathiers when I watch them on T.V.

Wow! This real blow me away 44 and did'nt he did a
recording tribute to Bill & Gloria. I feel so sorry
for the Artist that were involved with incident,I had
a similiar incident when I was a organist for a small
church and I played Have Thine O Way Lord and went back
to the Church to listen to the sermon and my Uncle
was besided me and at the end of the service after pray
I was about to shake hand with him and he pass out on
the floor and this was quite a few years ago but it
will be something I never forget. So, I real pray for
Bill & Gloria and the Family of God, cause they gone
through so much Loss.

Praying for you ( Bill & Gloria ) & Homecoming Team !!

My prayers and sympathy go out to his family, the Gaithers, and his co-workers and friends. Anthony was truly blessed by the Lord. His talent was so wonderful and he used it to glorify God. God must have needed him
to play for him but what a wonderful day it will be when we all meet together in heaven and can hear those beautiful notes again.
Again, please know that I will be praying for you all during this time of loss. May God's blessing be with you.
