Thanks for your quick reply. First, let me tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your son. I can only imagine what a difficult period this is for you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers!!!

I'm presuming at his age that his assets were minimal, so Facebook should allow you access to his Facebook account by being presented with a Small Estate Affidavit. You can download this form from the following link: . If Facebook won't accept this, you would need to file a petition with the probate court in the county in NC in which he resided at his death to be appointed the administrator of his estate. The court will issue you official documentation evidencing that appointment. You would then give Facebook a copy of that evidencing your authority to act on behalf of your son's estate.
