You need not to worry much, as your audience will not quit on you. It  will make you lose little value as facebook will not count likes from memorialized and deactivated accounts.

This change is good in some way as it show always real time and consistent like count on a page. If a followers deactivate his account and reactivate it again, the like count will be adjusted.
