Don't want to sound like a dick, but i'm also French-Canadian and RIP doesn't mean rest in peace, but requiescat in pace. It's latin, my good friend. RIP is used in many places that doesn't use english and the fact that the first letter of the 3 words are the same in latin and english is a pure coincidence.
