I would appreciate a translation from Yiddish. These words were written on the back of a photo of a man, a woman, and their young son and daughter (under 7 years of age). This was a photo my grandparents had kept. I am trying to determine if the subjects in the photo are identified and if they were relatives of mine. If not taken in the US, the photo may have been taken in Belchatow or Lodz, Poland.

" I am sending my picture to remember me by,
to my dear (female)friend and (male) friend
F[or P]inala (?).
From me. Shloime Kenigsman.
November 19, 1929."
Hope this helps
