We give you thanks:

 for his long and full life;

 for his strength of character;

 and for his devotion and service to family, nation and Commonwealth.


We praise you for:

 his generosity;

 the many contributions he made to our national life;

 and the encouragement he gave to so many,

 especially to the young.


Rest eternal grant onto him, O Lord,

and let light perpetual shine upon him.


May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
