On April 25, 2017, there was a fatal car crash, Gainesville, Georgia. It cost three lives, a baby girl and two young mothers. The family wasn’t in their best state and was left devastated by the loss. A passerby on her way to work captured the accident and while looking at the picture she saw something floating up the crash which looked like a pathway to heaven.
When the mourning family saw the picture, they were comforted in some sort of way.
Hannah Simmons, 23 years old was driving with her friend Lauren Beauten, 28 years old. The duo was on their way to Hannah’s nine-month-old daughter A’lannah’s routine check-up. Suddenly, Hannah lost control of the wheel and swerved into oncoming traffic, and had a head-on collision with a truck. The truck was unharmed, but Hannah, Lauren, and the baby died on spot. Hannah was also pregnant with her second baby.
19-year-old Anisa Gannon was stuck in traffic because of the accident, and immediately took a shot of the scene and sent it to her boss as she didn’t want to get in trouble for getting late to work.
Anisa never noticed anything unusual in the picture and when her aunt Tara saw the shot she took, she say something like a light ray, which looked like a path that went up straight into the sky.
“She said, ‘Anisa, it looks like a pathway up to heaven,’ ” Anisa said. Tara couldn’t believe what she saw and it couldn’t get out of her head either and went on to track the family of the deceased. She believed the picture could be a source of comfort to them.
“I just needed something to show me that they were in Heaven and that they were OK,” Judy Simmons, Hannah’s mom, said. “And that was my confirmation.” Tara wasn’t wrong after all as it comforted Laura’s fiance who lost his woman and their unborn child, it helped her family get better.
“I can’t explain the feeling [that] came over me,” Dana said. “It was like watching them go to heaven.” “Nothing’s ever going to be the same, my heart’s broken and I miss them daily,” Judy said, who keeps the photo on top of her TV so she can see it every day. “If it wasn’t for the picture, I don’t know, it made it a whole lot better for me.”
Anisa and Tara shared in the family’s loss and hopes they get comfort and peace.
