Dubin, David M. MD
 

A poem in the form AABBCCDD...

H(ere) L(ies)
An upright man, who walked righteously
He feared God all his days
He studied God's Torah at all times
And kept His commandments with his whole heart
His soul will rest with the Eternal One forever
He will rest and rise to receive his reward at the end of days
Mr Meir Josef son of Mr. Nehemiah the Levite SEGAL
Died six days in the m(onth of) Adar
In the year 675 by the short count (ie, 5675 = 1915)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of (everlasting) life (a boilerplate abbrev.)
