Hawkins had just received the family photos that had been printed out by hospital staff. Hawkins holds a photo of her son Javon (who is now age 25 who she has not seen in 16 years) and Williamson holds her high school senior portrait. There were several hugs and goodbye's this day as Hawkins is to leave for California tomorrow and this was her last physical therapy session. (Hawkins suffered a stroke) Earlier, Hawkins was reunited with a long lost cousin Diane Holmes after 16 years. The reunion took place at Medstar Washington Hospital Center where Hawkins has been recuperating since mid-October.
