I didn't know his time of death. It was 11:46 am. His occupation was listed as Student-Elementary. His marital status was checked as Never Married.
The cause was listed as: complications due to right heart hypoplastic syndrome. Interesting that they didn't give his heart defect the proper name.
I have the last certificate that Michael will receive. It is not a marriage certificate. Or a diploma. Or a certificate of participation in the astronaut camp he might've participated in this summer.
It is a death certificate. A signed, certified copy of the end of my son's life. In black and white. On watermarked paper.
