in consequence of the missive, Fanny dying young?, penned by Bridget D
No, I am not saying that. Perhaps it wasn't clear, but The "others" I was referring to who aren't happy I did not mention, those being Mrs. Norris, Maria, Mary, and Henry.
"(IMO in order of happiness) Fanny, Edmund, William, Susan, Tom (he's the reformed one), Julia, Sir Thomas (I would put him higher, but he has the conscious grief of losing Maria? and therefore acknowledging his own failings as a father), Lady B... (and others aren't happy.)"
As for Fanny dying young, I was indulging in the idea that Fanny, having married Henry, might be similar to Jane Fairfax in having an exuberant husband and I remember reading somewhere (again conjecture, I have no references whatsoever) that Jane Austen mentions that Jane Fairfax dies young.
