headstone

Here lies buried
A dear and kind man
A God-fearing man and who honored our Rabbis, our teacher Rav
Shraga
The son of Menachem the Cohen
Shapiro
He went to his eternal rest with a good
name, having fully lived,
[                 ] Shevat 5677 (1917)

May his soul be bound in the bonds of life.
