Iustorum autem animae in manu Dei sunt et non tanget illos tormentum mortis visi sunt in oculis insipientium mori et aestimata est adflictio exitus illorum et quod a nobis est iter exterminii illi autem sunt in pace
“The souls of the just are in the hand of God…in the sight of the unwise they seemed to die and their departure was taken for misery and their going away from us was seen as utter destruction but, in truth, they are at peace”
Wisdom iii.1-3

Domine dilexi decorum domus tuae et locum habitationis gloriae tuae.

“O Lord, I have loved the beauty of Thy house and the place wherein Thy glory dwelleth”

Ps. xxv.8

Quid retribuam Domino pro omnibus quae retribuit mihi calicem salutaris accipiam et nomen Domini invocabo.

What shall I render unto the Lord for all the things that He hath rendered unto me? I will take the chalice of salvation, and I will call upon the Name of the Lord”

Ps. cxv.12,13

Beati mortui qui in Domino moriuntur

"Blessed are the Dead who die in the Lord"

Apoc 14:13

What? Was he not "fortified by the Sacraments of Our Holy Mother the Church"?
Is there no request "of charity pray for the soul of ....."

Request added (twice!).

No idea if he was so fortified by the rites of the Church. I expect not since it was a sudden death.

But if you know better then let me know and I'll make the change.
