4/14/2013 5:24 PM The first five lines are a quotation which I can't place.
Then it says
Died 22nd of Av, 5704.
Bluma, daughter of Mr. Abraham Ava
May her soul be bound up for life eternal (5-letter acronym)
4/14/2013 8:42 PM The first part is very moving:

"I weep for his wife a woman of valor, her hand helped the poor; left on the best of her years"
4/29/2013 2:21 AM The lines are taken from a portion of Eishes Chayil (Proverbs 31), which is recited every Shabbos before the meal, praising the qualities of a Jewish woman.
