Dustin Moore of Portland, Oregon, was browsing around town on Google Street View when he spotted a familiar face. The image taken of his late grandma Alice's house captured her sitting on her front stoop, soaking up some sun and reading the paper. Moore says it's one of the last photos taken of her — she died last year.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Dustin Moore of Portland, Oregon was just browsing around town on Google Street View when he spotted his grandmother sitting on the front porch of her white clapboard cottage, soaking up some sun and reading the paper. He was surprised, because his grandma Alice passed away last year. He quickly posted the image, saying it was uplifting and awesome, and told local TV news she still lives on in Google and is watching over us. It's MORNING EDITION.
