But now after a week since it has gone viral, the son that wrote the obit speaks out to tell us his side of the story. Simply put Jay Dehmalo said he and his sister wanted to get the last word. 

In the days after it went viral, son Jay Dehmalo was contacted by the Daily Mail in London, and he explained why he and his sister wrote the obituary the way they did.

Dehmalo, who now lives in Ohio, told Daily Mail that they had reservations about writing the obituary, but that they felt it helped them.

"We wanted to finally get the last word," he stated. In an effort to escape his past, Dehmalo changed his last name. He told the paper neither she or their father, Dennis, were good parents, saying they liked to "drink and party. You can't believe the dysfunction of the family," he said.

They were ultimately raised by their grandparents, of whom they were both very fond.

While the facts of the obituary were broadly confirmed by one of Dehmalo's relatives who spoke to the Star Tribune, said "there is a lot of stuff that is missing."
