Hello to all!.
Can any one explain the meaning of three words I saw
on my Gfather grave.(Hebrew letters).
beth-shin-teth
I would guess "b'seiva tova" -- "in a ripe old age".

...mem-he-ayin
I'm not sure about this one, it probably depends on context.
It could stand for "min ha'olam" -- ">from this world" (as in
passed ">from this world").

...caph-he-lamed.
Couldn't come up with anything for this one.
