I would appreciate a translation from Yiddish. These words were written on the back of a photo of two women, and a teenage boy and girl. 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 was likely taken in Belchatow or Lodz, Poland.

"To remember (me) by,
for my close acquaintances,
from me, Sifre lazerovitch,and cousins.
I wish you a happy future in America,
for you, your husband and child."

(can't make out the first two lines, maybe someone else can help here)
"I just didn't happen to have a picture of myself alone, only of this little group"

Hope this helps.

I'm not sure what the second line is -- looks like (phonetically) "Palavatza" or "Folatvatza" or similar. A name? A district? It's not a word I'm familiar with.
