12/13/2020 4:02 PM Yes, I would like to know all the information that is carved in the Stone. Thank you so much.
12/13/2020 4:37 PM This image is extremely difficult to read. Here is the best that I can do:

Here lies

Our beloved and honored father, beloved by his fellow man

and by his family, Reb Aharon Yitzchak son of Reb Uriyah [?]

[he passed away?] the 25th of Nisan of the year 5701

May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.
======================================================
Please understand that the above are educated guesses, based on the rough outlines of the letters that can be seen.

I am quite sure of the Aharon Yitzchak, not so sure about the father's name.

By the way, 'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.

The 25th of Nisan of the year 5701 began at sunset on April 21st 1941, and ended at sunset on the 22nd.

If you can get a better image of the stone, I'll be glad to take another look. It might be helpful to wet the stone, which might make the letters clearer.
