In Georgia, April 25 was a tragic day for several families. A fatal crash occurred that instantly stole the lives of young people and sent them up to Heaven.
The car crash killed 23-year-old Hannah Simmons, her nine-month-old daughter A’lannah, and her 28-year-old friend Lauren Buteau. These Gainesville, Georgia residents will be sorely missed.
In what became a memorial for the departed, Anisa Gannon snapped a picture of the aftermath. While she imagined the image would simply be a reminder of what happened to the three victims, she later saw that it captured something else entirely. In the picture, a ray of light rises from the accident site up toward Heaven. Family members now believe that this image shows the souls of their loved ones making their journey to Heaven.

The accident was a tragedy. Simmons was driving and lost control of the vehicle. She struck another, which ended in the worst way possible for everyone in Simmons’s car.
Anisa Gannon was one of the many people caught in the traffic jam that resulted. She was not related to the victims or anyone involved in the crash, but was simply on her way to work. Nonetheless, she stopped and snapped a picture of the devastation. But she never imagined that it would show a ray of light leaving the crash site and rising toward God in Heaven.
Gannon snapped the photo to prove to her boss that she was stuck in traffic. She had a history of being late and wanted to show that it wasn’t her fault this time. Gannon’s aunt Tara Noble also saw the photo and instantly saw the “pathway to Heaven.”
While the nonbelievers think it is just some kind of glare off the windshield, Noble trusts that it was God’s way of giving some closure to the families of the deceased.
Noble added, “I don’t believe in coincidences, especially the two “lights” inside that bigger light. It brought the families peace, whether it’s a glare or not. It’s indescribable, basically, and it does look like them leaving.”
Because Noble was inspired by the image and knew that God had shown it to her for a reason, she spent hours looking to track down the victim’s mother. Eventually, she located Hannah Simmons’s mother, Judy. When Judy saw the image, she recognized it as a gift from above.
“That picture was taken for a reason — to give me sanity. Hannah was also my best friend, and she’s looking down from heaven now,” Judy said.
Judy said that Hannah and Lauren were best friends, just like their mothers Judy and Dana.
Hannah’s cousin Paige Wilson said, “No doubt it’s some kind of sign.”
Moments like this do not happen very frequently, but when they do – when God shows His presence in a photograph like this – we at AWM try to share it with you.
Do you believe that this image shows the car accident victims ascending to Heaven? Or is it just glare?
