Der herr hat euch gegeben
Der han nahm euch dahin.

The head stone rests in the center of the plot and on either side are two stones for each boy.  One is the stone lying at the head and the other at the foot.

I wonder if this headstone was placed there long after the death of little Herbert. How sad to lose two children while they were so young.
