Works which have used it as a tag:
Sophia is fifteen the first time Daryl sees her do it. One of her throwing knives in her hand, she kneels over the body and says the phrase all the teenagers seem to have picked up somewhere. "May you never rise again."
Carl has shovels out, and when Martha and the other teenage boy look at him in confusion, he says in a steady tone, "We bury our dead."
And that's all Glenn. The phrase, though, that must have come from one of the other packs of survivors. The ritualistic stab or shot to the brain - cleaner than the pick axe from that long ago night at the quarry - seemed to be some sort of death rite to the teens. To those whose memories of the world before are faded but still there, rekilling the dead is a necessary evil. To the teens it's just a way of life. It's not until he witnesses Sophia that night that he realizes that.
