Tombstone Tuesday - Google Translate

This gravestone is located in the Bohemian National Cemetery of Baltimore. Many of the headstones are in Czechoslovakian. After some research I located Google Translate. The site description was as follows:

Google Translate is a free translation service that provides instant translations between 57 different languages. It can translate words, sentences and web pages between any combination of our supported languages. With Google Translate, we hope to make information universally accessible and useful, regardless of the language in which it’s written.
With Google Translate the epitaph for this headstone was :

Can relax our darling Charlie Primus died 17th March 1911 in age of the 5 year 4 months, aunts, uncles mourn, and sisters.

This may not be an exact translation, but we discover the name, date of death, and approximate date of birth for this child. The translator tool has proven to be helpful locating ancestors throughout this cemetery.
