Here lies buried
A lover of Torah and one who performed acts of loving-kindness
A lover of humanity
R. Shmirah Louv *
the son of R. Yisrael the Levi
Who Departed on the 11th of Elul 5684 (1914)

 


*  R. Shmirah Louv is most probably related (perhaps father) to Mordecai Louv who was on the Board of Governors of the Free Loan Association of Lunna. See webpage.
