Death is the termination of the biological functions that sustain a living organism. The word refers both to the particular processes of life's cessation as well as to the condition or state of a formerly living body - Wikipedia
I wish it is so simple in reality as well. Thinking about it, its just not the termination of biological functions, its the complete cessation of the person.
Don't know how it is for the deceased, but for the people around, its like a camphor, vaporized right in front of your eyes, witnessing its existence a second ago and realizing its absence a second later.
What left behind in between these seconds are just the memories, the fading memories that could never re-take its position in reality.
