Speaking ill of the dead (in code)

I love this kind of stuff: euphemisms in obituaries and what they really mean.

Vivacious is a drunk as is his door was always open, so is a character.Fun-loving bachelor and he never married are usually gay; free spirit is unemployable, utterly carefree is utterly senile. Death has its own clichés:passed, passed on, passed away, passed over, passing, met his/her maker,crossed over, departed, lost, ad infinitum.
