  1. Apollodorosh says:

    May all of them have been welcomed into the House of Haídēs by the Host of Many and his Fair Queen. Génoito.

  2. May they find peace in the halls of their ancestors and joy in the halls of the gods, till Ragnarok come.

  3. WynnDark says:

    May the Blessed Dead remain blessed and those left behind forgive themselves for remaining.
