Written by Javed Iqbal

A Canadian father whose three children were killed by a drunk driver in 2015 took his own life in the hours after Father’s Day.

Edward Lakes wife Jennifer Neville-Lake shared the tragic news about her husband along with a picture of their three children – Daniel, Harry and Milly, who were 9, 5 and 2 when they died in the crash.

“The eyes he shared with Harry are forever closed Daniel’s curls will never shine in sunlight again I will never again see Milly’s shy smile creep over his lips. My children’s father, Edward Lake, has joined our children so they can play together, forever, ”Neville-Lakes read in a Monday tweet.

“Mahal kita, Edward,” she wrote, meaning “I love you” in Filipino.

A day before she shared a post with a picture of the children’s graves.

“This should not be right. It can not be,” read the caption.

The children’s grandfather, Gary Neville, was also killed in the suburban crash in Toronto. Their grandmother and great-grandmother were badly injured, according to yorkregion.comwho reported Lakes’ suicide.

Her family drove the children to their home when drunk driver Marco Muzzo T-legged their vehicle in the town of Vaughan, the store said.

Muzzo was reportedly granted full probation in 2021.

“I have no one left to call me mother. You killed all my babies,” Jennifer told Muzzo at her 2016 sentencing, according to CityNews Toronto.

“You deserve to know what it’s like to have every single life you’ve created taken away from you,” she said.

Lake told the release at the time of the sentencing that he was struggling with “suicidal thoughts and intense anxiety.”
