A God fearing man from his youth,
Complete and straight in all his ways,
And seeker of peace all the days of his life,
Yehonasan son of Yakov Bloch,
Died in good ripe old age,
2 Sivan 5612 (1852)
May his soul be bundled in the bundle of the living
(the last line is abbreviated, and is a classic ending of a Jewish tombstone)
