Gordon, Hampton, VA; devoted relatives, Carolyn Wilson, Chesapeake, VA,  as well as aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends.  Her kindness to others and her love for her family was a beacon of light within her family’s “special universe”. She wanted just one more family gathering!

    Dion and Tish, my heart goes out to you. I remember the first time that I met Norma at your lovely home, I found her to be such an awesome, fun person to be in the presence of, in a matter of minutes it felt like I’d known her for many years. She will be missed at the NEXT cookout. I love you guys, praying for you!
