Rune stone Sm 19

The other day I passed a rune stone in the village Stojby, that is situated just north of Växjö in Gårdsby parish, Sm 19 (Raa 134:1/Gårdsby 134:1). It is dated to the Viking Age and stands just west of the road that stretches through Stojby.

The inscription is as follows:
þurluf * raisþi * stain * þana * eftiR * ala * auk * etu * hialbi * kuþ * aut * þaiRa

In translation:
Þorlôf raised this stone in memory of Áli/Alli and Etta. May God help their spirits.
