Not to be all morbid and un-delightful crumpets, but we have an official plea to friends & family:
We hereby announce our official order to have the above deary postcards used as the invites to the party for our passing on when we die.
Because that is what death is, to us, right now. It is life, it is all that life that went by and was lived and soaked up and danced to and loved and laughed with. Do with it what you will, shed a tear or two or five, but in the end and after the wrenching sadness that feels like it will never go away but is so universal that everyone understands even when you feel they don't, then, after all that, remember the good. Remember the fun, the laughs, the dances, and all the living that was done. Look back on it all, and wow, what a day, a life, a person.*
And that's official, lovies. Don't you forgets it.
