death is neither good nor bad, it is just different. the reason death gets a bad rep is because no one knows what really happens. The fact that you leave people behind is not really a bad thing, loss forces us to grow, and without loss, there can be no growth. You would just stay the same. And the only thing you can do is live your life the best way you can today (in case the afterlife sucks) and leave behind more then just material possessions.
