Expressions of the sadness of loss appear etched on the faces of J. W. and Nannie Cash in this photograph taken circa spring, 1942. Their lives were never quite the same; yet they made the best of it and carried on in loving care for their other three children and grandchildren. At the age of 84, Nannie died quietly in her sleep on the afternoon of August 13, 1959 after a prolonged illness following a heart attack the previous spring; J. W. passed equally quietly three weeks short of his 92nd birthday on November 16, 1964. They both believed until the end that their son was murdered in Mexico by agents of the Nazi Party and/or the Klan.
