Gordon's pastor said it could have been much worse. She had just dropped off her kids at school.


"It could have been worse because every morning she gets up and she takes her children to the bus stop. Then she comes back and she goes to work and if it would have been earlier, her children might have been with her. We thank God, and again, he knows best," said Reverend Jackie Gilmore, Sr.

Gordon lives just blocks from where the accident happened. Dozens of loved ones arrived on scene mourning the loss. She had a son in high school and a son in middle school.

"She was a great mom. She cared for her children, for her family, for the community. Anything that you would ask her she would do it for you," said Reverend Gilmore.

Gilmore said Gordon is now with God.

"The community we will feel the loss. We want to pray for her husband and for the family and for her children," Gilmore said.

Belinda Gordon's sister-in-law, Vera Smiley, says her family will need those prayers, because she was the glue that held their family together.

"All the time, she was about company," said Smiley, "She was about family, and I don't care how far it was, she was there."

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Friends and family have set up a GoFundMe account to help provide for Gordon's sons.
