TORONTO (WTXF) - Today is the day we bury my family. Ed's and my hopes for the future, our legacy and our dreams will be committed to the ground for eternity along with my father who was the "patriarch" of my family. Ed and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary looking at the caskets full of our broken and stolen dreams. But our day was supposed to have another beginning and I came across the video that shows it. Just over 2 months ago our children began rehearsing a dance that they were going to perform for us on Friday Oct 2 in the morning - our 10th wedding anniversary. Our life as a family was far from "picture perfect" but it was ours and it was our paradise. I came across this song called "Just Another Day In Paradise" and the kids wanted to dance to it. Every night at dinner we would pray and I would always ask for another day with the ones I love. Here is the only rehearsal I have on record but it shows the personalities of each of them. If you knew Harry please take note of far he had come by seeing how he dances and twirls. Milly giggles throughout as my beautiful Daniel directs his brother and sister. You can hear the exasperation in his voice when they don't always follow his direction and see how lovingly he helps to guide them. You will notice that Harry is in a dress, the truth is that for self help skills it was easier for him to be independent wearing a dress then if he wore pants. This was also the day he was able to successfully put on and take off his socks completely independently. Thank you for watching my children. All your love and prayers are always appreciated. God bless. Love, Jenn and Ed
A Toronto mother posted a heart-breaking video of her three children rehearsing a special dance for their parents, just months before they were killed in a car crash.
Jennifer Neville-Lake posted the video of the children Daniel, 9, Harry, 5, and Milly, 2; rehearsing a dance they were planning to perform on their parent's October 2 wedding anniversary.
But instead of celebrating their anniversary, the heartbroken parents were forced to bury their children, who tragically died in a car crash in September.
"Ed and I celebrate our 10 th wedding anniversary looking at the caskets full of our broken and stolen dreams," Neville-Lake wrote in a letter accompanying the video. "But our day was supposed to have another beginning and I came across the video that shows it."
The parents posted the touching video to Facebook on the day they said their final goodbyes and buried their children.
"Ed's and my hopes for the future, our legacy and our dreams will be committed to the ground for eternity along with my father who was the patriarch of my family," she wrote.
Neville-Lake's father Gary, 65, was also killed in the car crash, which involved a suspected drunk driver.
"Our family life was far from 'picture perfect,'" she continued. "But it was ours and it was our paradise."
