9/3/2012 1:30 PM The picture is tiny and very hard to read, but here is an attempt. If you post a larger image the job will be much easier.
Left side:
Here lies Meir Dov the son of Binyamin died on Rosh Hodesh Sivan (first day of Sivan) [6]705

Right side (harder to read)
Here lies Pesya? Esther the daughter of Hanoch? Anshil? (her father's name is almost a guess) died on 6 Teves, [5]721
