transcription

headstone

Here lies buried
An upright man
Your days were short
Your righteousness went before you
Your life was [                 ]
Your days  quickly passed away
He is my teacher, my father
R. Yitzchak the son of Dobar
Rosen
He departed with a good name
On the 28th day of the Month of Nisan
The year 1888
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
