Jennifer Neville-Lake from Bampton, Ontario, shared a photo of her Facebook early September of what would have been the lunch boxes of her three children before the start of school in 2015.

Her children Daniel, nine; Harry, five; and Milly, two, allegedly entered eighth, fourth and second class in September 2015. Instead, they were killed by a drunk driver who had a stop sign.

& # 39; These were their lunch bags for their 2015 school year … The boys took their lunch bags to school and Milly took hers to her music lesson and when she would spend Friday with my father, & # 39; Jennifer wrote.

& # 39; The first day of school in our family due to a drunk driver. & # 39;

The shared image showed the lunch boxes placed on top of the tombstone of the three children in the cemetery.

Jennifer decided to share the heartbreaking post in the hope that it would stop people from driving under the influence.

& # 39; When I read it to a friend, she said how it made sure she never wanted to complain again about too much homework or crazy things and appreciated the moment & # 39 ;, Jennifer said Good morning America.

& # 39; Your choices become actions that have consequences … I will never look again, participate in and with, enjoy, celebrate, cry, learn with, grow with, be back with one of my children because of the decision of another adult driving drunk. & # 39;

In 2015, Jennifer sent her children to their grandparents, who lived just 45 minutes from the parental home.

Then on September 27, it was the grandparents' responsibility to bring the children back home. That evening Jennifer received a terrifying call that there was a car accident involving three children.

& # 39; [My parents] arrived late and I got irritated & # 39 ;, Jennifer told ABC News at the time. & # 39; But when 5 hours struck, I thought, "This is really late for them." I tried to call their phones and they didn't answer me. I turned the news around and I saw the crash and I said, "That's my van."

Jennifer and her husband, Ed, hurried to the hospital in Toronto. But only Jennifer & # 39; s mother, Neriza Neville, survived the crash.

"I remember telling the doctor," All my children? All my children are gone? This can't be true, "Jennifer told the news organization back then. & # 39; Our life is just about over because our entire family has been taken away. & # 39;

Marco Muzzo was the drunk driver in the other car when he crashed the family of Jennifer and killed her three children and father.

He reportedly returned from a bachelor party in Miami, Florida, and had a blood alcohol level that was twice the legal limit. Marco, who had returned to Canada in a private plane, blew through a stop sign in his car when he hit Jenny's family.

In 2016, he pleaded guilty to various counts of restricted driving behavior and death and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Marco sought conditional release in 2018, but was refused on the grounds that the conditional administration was not convinced that he would not be a risk to society if he was released.

Jennifer shared her heartbreaking lunchbox post on Facebook hoping to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk driving and the hardships it can cause families.
