Need translation to find out if this is the stone of a relative. I have another image where I push back the grass that is in front of the last line. If you need it, I can email that to you as well. Thank you for your help!

On  Response 
4/13/2011 9:54 PM The Bachelor Yechiel son of Moshe Schwartz. 33 years old.
Can't read the date
4/14/2011 4:31 AM the important 'Bucher'(lad)
YECHIEL
son of respectful('Kvod', abbreviated?) MOSHE SHWARTZ
helper he was to his relatives
and fullfiled the Mitzva of respecting father and mother all his days
Last line hard to read - grass!
It says: died Lamed-Gimel(33) years old
I'm not sure that's it's Lamed Gimel though.
But it sounds like he died young.
4/14/2011 6:17 AM "here is buried
the important youth [abbrev. bet-mem-resh]
yehiel
son of the honoured rabbi moshe schwatrz may his candle shine
helpful and supporting to his relatives
fulfilled the commandment of honouring mother and father all his days
died..."
4/15/2011 5:14 PM There are letters that can be seen through the grass at the bottom, which I imagine are the date.

Also, I think the acronym at the end of the first line is kuf-mem-reish, but I have not yet figured out what it means (e.g. Google shows it in front of names).
4/15/2011 5:15 PM oops. chaf-mem-reish
4/17/2011 5:19 AM My guess is that the abbreviation at the end of the first line means "our respected teacher, Rabbi...". In Hebrew "kvod moreinu rav".
