Behind every lie is the truth. There is not one person in this world that lies. There is a reason to every lie. People lie because they don’t want someone knowing the truth or even they don’t want someone to judge or think different of them. In today’s society people lie to fit in to be just like everyone else. One of the biggest lies that I have told is how my grandparents died; my mom’s mom and dad.
On October 12 1983 around 5; 25 PM, something horrible happened my granddad shot his wife and then killed his self. The reason why this happened is because his sister was putting lies into his head. Telling him things that were not true. Horrible lie likes “his wife was cheating on him”. Back then cheating was horrible thing to do.

Then once they finished what they had to do they asked my mom “what do you want to do with the bodies”. My mother took over from there. Once the bodies were taken out of the house my mom cleaned up all the blood and the mess. None of the other kids helped clean up the mess only my mom did. After all that happened they put the bodies on ice for 3 days so that the swelling can do down. That way the wake can be an open casket. Over 200 people came to the wake because they were known so well.
