Our dear father
Avraham son of Reb Aryeh Leib

May his soul dwell in everlasting life.

There are Hebrew letters of "Mem,Vav,Hey" (which appear after the phrase our dear father), which would usually indicate that Adolf Fromet was a beloved teacher.

The final line of five Hebrew letters translate to: "May his soul be bound up in the bonds of eternal life."

Hope that this is helpful....Jo
