Go forth, DEAR Brother/Sister, upon your final journey.
Go from this world and rest in peace in the presence of God the Father, who created you;
in the love of Jesus our Lord, who calls you his friend,
and in the warmth of the Holy Spirit, who has made his home in you.
In death your life is now changed, not ended,
and we give you back to our faithful God who first gave you to us.
On our common pilgrimage
we have accompanied you
as far as we can go together.
