There's a meme currently going round - it's one of those multiple question interview ones. Among its questions are:

If you could bring back anyone that has passed, who would it be?

I'm sorry, but if I ever encounter the author of that question, I'll have to give her a real bitch slapping. 'has passed'? For fuck's sake, are you talking about someone going past you in the street? Yes? No? No, I thought not.

You're talking about death. There's a good, short word you could have used, one that takes less typing. It's 'died'. Don't pretend it doesn't occur - it does. To all of us - no-one gets out of this alive. This sort of milquetoast euphemism is an attempt to deny one of life's most basic features.

Aarrgghh!!
