(CNN) — Dustin Moore’s grandmother died last year, but she lives on in cyberspace!

The Beaverton, Oregon man occasionally likes to search Google Maps Street Views in his spare time.

He was surprised recently when he saw a familiar face — a street view of his grandma’s house in Northeast Portland showed his grandma sitting on her front porch, reading the newspaper!

“I made the joke with my brother. I was like, well, grandma’s gone, but she still somehow lives on in Google and is watching over us,” Moore said.

Moore says the image is one of the last few photos of his grandma.

Moore knows Google will eventually update the site with a new photo — but that is usually done every six or seven years, so he figures he has some more time to spend with her.
