3/28/2015 1:49 AM Hey Diane, I try to translate the text on the right side stone, with the name MORRIS MEHR on it: Here Is laying Rabbi Moshe ,son of Rabbi
Eliyahu TZvi,who was an honest man, a learner and educated
Who loved his People and all that is sacred, the Thora being for him ,the air that he inhaled,. He died at the age of 82 On the date of 15 to the month of Heshvan, at the year hatashag.
This will be about the month of October or beginning of November,, and the year is 1943 for sure.
hope I helped you. About the other stone, you have to try to give some light on the left side of it too, cause the sentences are cut in the middle. My email is rlivshits@gmail.com
