Death marks the edge in time and space of our physical body, beyond which we
become purely astral (discarnate, spirit) beings. Death is the bringer of peace, healing, and new beginnings.
Most people at this time just don't even get it, that non-physical means non-physical. If you have to try to explain to a scientist that you're not crazy for believing in astral things, then you want to be gentle, for your own sake if not for theirs.
"Look, I'm not crazy, because I'm not even talking about the physical world. I know perfectly well that I can't directly measure or confirm with your tools the things that I'm talking about. There's no conflict here, see? Because it's not physical. So let's just suppose for a minute that it's possible for consciousness to exist outside of the physical body, and that's what I'm talking about. If you could call it a place then it's a place that I like to go, and it's where you go too when you dream and when you die. Maybe it's an energy that you'll measure someday, and maybe it's not. But all I'm saying is that such things aren't just a fantasy, that being non-physical is a perfectly satisfying and whole way of being, and that most of the life in the universe is existing non-physically."
Don't worry, they'll get used to it, just like the rest of us are trying to get used to having totally satisfying and whole lives within our physical limits, which if you haven't noticed by now are rather restrictive but nonetheless sufficient.
