Please could someone translate these two lines from the tombstone of Lazarus Brown the step brother of my grandfather. He died in 1907, and I have found he was buried in Wolverhampton. I am indebted to the staff at the archives there for the photograph. I am able to translate the rest of the inscription. The first word here is I know avinu - our father. The last few letters on the top line here are faint, but are,I think: resh aleph shin nun vav. The second line I cannot translate.

I would appreciate a complete translation of the two lines.

Grateful thanks.
