Virginia William Gordon

Mom told me today that Virginia William Gordon passed away last Friday, February 22 (obituary from the Daily Progress). She occasionally cared for my brother and me when we were very young. I don’t have many specific memories, other than sitting downstairs with her by the woodstove. I remember my brother and I not minding a bit when she was scheduled to come watch us. Mostly, I remember her as an unusually kind and patient lady. She always seemed happy, and I remember her smile and heart warming laugh.

Mom, my wife (or could’ve been my bride to be – the years fly by), and I paid her a visit sometime in the last 15 years on one of my visits home to Orange, VA. The yard at her house on Spicers Mill Road a few miles up from my parents’ was still as well-kept as ever. She certainly remembered me through Mom, and I was pleased that my wife got the chance to meet such a wonderful lady and connection to my past.
