Bottom line is a five letter acronym for May her soul be bound up for life eternal.
2/10/2013 11:11 PM The Hebrew name is Yehkezkel, it was often shortened to Khezkl, Khatskl, and in modern Hebrew Khezy,

The Hebrew prophet Yehkezkel is better known as Ezekiel by those who don't know the bible in Hebrew. There is no "i" in the original Hebrew, nor on the gravestone.
