The normal Rosary is special enough. I sure hope they say many for me when my time comes!

Amen to that. I figured as much but thought I’d ask anyway. I figure I will do the sorrowful Mysteries.

For someone who has died I would say the Glorious mysteries, focusing on the hope of the resurrection. I would add "eternal rest grant unto them O Lord..." in addition to or instead of, the "Fatima prayer"

This the traditional way to do things and is the common practice in my part of Ireland during a wake or while praying for the dead.

God Bless and may the souls of the faithful departed through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.
