We all know that Michael can't handle the death of his brother, the guilt is just too much. Death explains that it is not the dead, but the survivors that it cannot stand to look at.

Its ironic, because Michael killed himself because he survived, at this point nobody is unaware of this but frau Holtzpafel the mother who wil receive the news
