The dead and the still not dead

Stratifying data, I thought of my father as dead and myself as still alive .Supposing I say this : my father is dead and I am still not dead .The ontology is slightly different. But does it hold in the same context ?

The context is how people still alive would imagine dead people. Here the context is not whether the people imagining are alive or already dead .The context is how people in the present time and space imagine people belonging to another time and space .

There you are. The still not dead category is hardly relevant in this context.
