Headstone B-51

Row 4, Col 18

Here lies buried
An upright man he walked
Plesant [                  ]
He departed in [                   ]
Elderly, his days fully satisfied,
Israel the son of
Shemirah Shevi
A lively spirit [                 ]
On the thirteen day of the month
of Elul in the year 5666
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
