1. Here lies
2. An honest man....who loved torah
3.
4. The worthy Yehudah son of the worthy Mechal
5. Mitalavritz (in the rectangle-may be a surname)
6. (date which I can't read)
7. abbreviation for: "May his soul be bound up in the bonds of everlasting life"

Not sure where the enlarged photo is but here is my best shot:

A straight, humble person who loved Torah and kindness
Our Teacher

Meitelevitz (?)
