8/16/2012 12:01 AM Hello Rachel,

Here is the translation of the Hebrew text: Here lies Brina/Bryna Bas/(daughter of) Reb Mendel, ZL.

The word "Reb" is a title of honor used in front of the given name, which some people translate as "Mr.". It does NOT imply rabbi, nor is there a surname mentioned.

ZL after the name of her father indicates that he had predeceased her (of blessed memory).

Hope that this is helpful....Jo
