Well, take any living person who is not suffering, because their life is more pleasurable than painful. Tell me any reasonable way in which the dead person is suffering more?

It is clearly nonsense to suggest that death is inherently preferable to life, so I repeat that without defining what is meant by "suffering" (which is not as obvious as some may assume) this whole discussion is futile.
