    Assuming the inscription is addressing the deceased, and the 'we' are the survivors, the following may be used: Recquiescas in pace et in paradiso tecum rursus erimus.

    Note that Rest in Peace is the English translation of Latin Requiescat in pace. The phrase in both languages have the same initialism of RIP.

    Depends on whether you're referring to the deceased in second or third person, subjectively or objectively, respectively. :D Since the phrase includes 'we', that makes it more personal to me.
