May her memory be eternal and may God establish her soul where the Saints repose, and give her family strength to overcome this temporary separation. With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the soul of Your servant, where there is no pain, nor sorrow, nor sighing, but life everlasting. Memory eternal! Vjecnaja pamjat!
