Hebrew translation of tombstones--Silesia #general

I have posted on Viewmate transcriptions of inscriptions on the
tombstones of my gggrandfather and ggggrandmother >from a cemetery
in Silesia (Miejsce, Poland, formerly Staedtel, Germany).

The epitaph on the first is in the form of an acrostic in which
the lines begin with elements of the person's name--not just the
first letters. Is this common?

I am interested in literal translations, but also in a poetic
sense of them, as well as whatever other information you can share.
Thank you for your help. Please respond to me directly.
