If I may translate:

"Give them eternal rest, O Lord, and let the Light Everlasting shine upon them. May they rest in peace, Amen."

Great piece: but, if I might correct the title - it should be either "Medicus ex Morte" or "ex Mortuis" - depending on whether you meant "Doctor from Death" or "from the Dead"

(Don't mind me: I've had a classical education, and too much wine....) 7@=Q
