At the bottom, the letters "tet" "nun" "tzaddik" "bet" "heh" are the
abbreviation for "tehi nafsho tzerurah bitzror hachayyim" - which comes
from the Yizkor prayer and means "May his soul be bound up in the bond of
everlasting life".

=The first letter is not "tet" but "tav".

Best regards,
Udi Cain, Jerusalem
