A living thing dies and sediment is very slowly deposited on top of its body.
A living thing dies and sediment quickly covers its body.
A living thing dies and its skeleton is left exposed to the elements.

That most fossils form when living things die and they are buried by the sediment. the sediment slowly hardens into rock and preserves the shapes of organisms.
