Hannah & A'lannah Memorial Fund
On April 25th, 2017, the unthinkable happened. Hannah Simmons, just 23 years old, and her sweet baby girl, A'lannah Hopkins, only 9 months old, were taken from us suddenly due to a tragic car accident. Precious members of our family, gone way too soon.
Hannah was the sweetest, most loving person, who always carried a smile - and this was passed on to beautiful little A'lannah. Wherever they were, there was laughter and a brightness that could fill even the darkest of rooms. Those that knew Hannah will forever remember her as a person they could lean on, a person they could turn to, and a person who loved with all she had.
They leave behind family who are stricken with grief that nobody should ever have to endure. A family that is now, in their darkest days, planning funerals for these sweet girls- and with that, carrying the burden of funeral costs. We come to you as a family asking for your prayers, and any financial assistance you may be able to provide to help us give our precious angels the burial they so deserve.
I (Jeannie Mershon) am Hannah's cousin and have started this fund in hopes to relieve some of the financial burden of the funeral costs for Hannah's parents, Judy and Jackie Simmons and Hannah's Fiancé and A'lannah's father, Javont'e Hopkins. All donations will be given to the Simmons/Hopkins family for funeral and burial expenses.
We want to be able to relieve all of the financial burden of these funeral costs from the family. Remember, if you are unable to donate, your share goes a long way!
I've had an inquiry this morning about direct donations to the funeral home. If you missed the update yesterday, here is the information: Memorial Park Funeral Home, Memorial Park Rd, Gainesville 770-287-8227, Account for Hannah Simmons and A'lannah Hopkins.
We appreciate all of you so very much.
What a beautiful and heartbreaking image...My heart just breaks for this family...I am so terribly sorry for your losses. Do u happen to have an account set up at a bank or something, where people can donate as well? Gofundme takes a portion of every donation, which I do not agree with... I would love to donate. My prayers r with the Simmons/Hopkins family during this tragic time. I hope u can reach every dollar of your goal to give these beautiful girls a proper burial. God bless.
I cannot express my condolences enough for the families of these beautiful souls taken too soon. I don't know how much this will mean or even if it is inappropriate but I lost my father September 11th, we buried him September 19th, (my youngest sons 18th birthday) and unfortunately I lost my baby boy to suicide November 16th. This picture I have of him the day before his birthday (my fathers funeral) is exactly the same as the one that you were kind enough to share. Please know that my broken heart is with you all and I would love nothing more than to one day be able to speak with any of you if you are ever willing. My pain has not subsided and every day is a struggle but when I saw this video my hair stood on end. I'm not a religious person but I truly believe that God is real and I will pray that your families some day as well as my own learn to cope with these painful circumstances. All my love to you ❤️
I would love to share my photos that we captured with you and get your opinions and take on them for my heart also has been shattered. I'm so speechless at how such a tragedy can allow us to see such an amazing sight ❤️
Prayers going out to the family
So many many prayers for you. What a beautiful picture God has given you to help you during this tragic time. I have three little ones myself and this just breaks my heart. Much love to you.
