It didn’t take much to make Emily Clark happy. She was cheerful, sweet, beautiful, southern Georgia girl with a heart of gold and a bright future. There was never a happy moment Emily failed to capture on her iPhone. She was always filming or taking pictures of the best parts of her day with her friends, family, and boyfriend that she loved.
But little did her family know they would never have another opportunity to see her again.
Emily was about to graduate from nursing school when a massive tractor trailer rammed into their car on a highway near Savannah, Georgia in 2015. Emily, along with 4 other nursing students, lost her life in the horrific car accident.
Their daughter’s sudden death ripped the Clark family to pieces. Emily’s dad, mom, and sister would never have a chance to see her again and left a gaping hole in the hearts of her loved ones.
The family never recovered her cell phone, which they assumed was destroyed in the accident. But one night Emily’s younger sister, Haily, had a dream.
“I could see the phone and it was at the crash–it was at the site everything was picked up and I just always wanted to find it.” Haily’s father said there was no way it was there, that had been months ago and it couldn’t have survived the crash.
But six months after Emily’s death, the Clark family received a call from police.
They had found Emily’s phone. It was completely intact, lying in the exact spot Haley had seen in her dream. It was full of pictures and videos of the cheerful, beautiful southern Georgia girl during the last days of her life.
“It definitely brings joy to our hearts…it was just like she came alive,” said Emily’s dad.
The family rejoiced over the precious and priceless recovery. They finally got to see Emily one last time.
