In what south american country is this grave? I speak spanish :)
4/21/2013 5:07 PM forgot to mention the hebre date of death...29 adar
4/23/2013 8:35 PM The Hebrew and Greorian date are in agreement.

29 Adar, 5714 is 4 March 1954.

When interpreting numerical Gregorian dates on tombstones, it is always good to remember that in the US, the month comes first, but in much of the rest of the world, it's the day which is first.
