Dear Genners,

Would someone be kind enough to make a translation of the Hebrew on these tombstones for me and include the phrase on the bottom as well? One is for Pauline Boss Fisher and the other is for David Fisher.

Thank you so much.
Fran Boss Cohen

1st line: (abbreviation for) "here lies"
2nd line: (the) beloved and important (woman)
3rd line: Pesha daughter of Tzvi the Kohen
4th line: (abbreviation for) died (on the) 9(th day of the Hebrew month of) Tishrei (in the Hebrew year) 5732

David
1st line: (abbreviation for) "here lies"
2nd line: our beloved father
3rd line: Tuvia (but missing a letter) daughter of Tzvi Hersh
4th line: (abbreviation for) died (on the) 19(th day of the Hebrew month of) Shvat (in the Hebrew year) 5735
