    Due to the sensibility of this topic I would highly suggest to use another word for “cadaver”. E.g. “the body”, “the deceazed” etc.

      Well I suppose that word comes from my Spanish background but I think I would use sensitivity more than sensibility in your phrase too. But all good, it all means pretty much the same thing.

    Yes, the “body of the deceased” would be more respectful. Emiko was a very good person and did not deserve to die so young. We who live in the residences that she built are all stunned and saddened by this severe loss.
