May the Angels lead thee into Paradise, may the martyrs receive thee at thy coming and take thee to Jerusalem the Holy City. May the choris of the Angels receive thee and mayest thou have rest everlasting with the once poor, Lazarus.

You are not forgotten loved one
Nor will you ever be
As long as life and memory last
We will remember thee.
