15645 Tombstone

6/13/2010 4:06 PM I would like to see if anyone can read the faded inscription in the headstone. When I took the picture the "negative" image that initially appears seemed to make the letters more legible. I am hoping someone can adjust the photo such that the letters can be discerned and translated.

15644 Translation - Russian

6/9/2010 4:30 PM Hi,
These are, I believe, two addresses (with names) from a letter that was sent from Russia in 1948 to my paternal grandmother Rose (AINBUND) WEINER in the US.---------- The bottom half is the sender's name and address from the front of the envelope. ------ The top half is a scrap of paper that was inserted in the letter. I'd like to have these addresses translated from Russian to English (especially the names).------- There's also a fragment of writing in YIDDISH at the very top of the insert. I'd like to have a translation of that too, if it's legible. ------- Thanks so much for all of the great help!
