I just called Jessica Srinivasan of the Port Orange, Florida Social Security office.

I was calling to tell her that at nine o’clock this morning I visited the West Los Angeles Social Security office. There I gave Mr. Vasquez my mother’s death certificate and my birth certificate, which he copied and then faxed to her.

Ms. Srinivasan didn’t answer the phone, so I left her a voice mail with my mother’s social security number, my name, and my phone number, which I repeated three times.
