I hope someone can translate this rather faded message written on the back of a photograph of part of my grandmother's family.

If I am lucky, the message on the back will help solve the mystery of why her father and one brother are not in the photograph, to whom it was sent and the reason for a formal posed shot taken in a location away from their home shtetl of Shadova.

Thanks so much in anticipation

Dear daughter-in-law Dveire. I send you your pictures. One picture took Sheine. She came to visit us with her husband. She saw your picture and she liked it very much then...
(lower)....father said today that....he will sew...
5/13/2014 1:29 AM Line 1: Dear daughter-in-law Dveire, I am sending you both
L2: your pictures. One picture was taken by Sheine.
L3: While she was paying us a visit with her husband
L4: she noticed your picture and she
L5: liked it very much...

The rest is quite unreadabe.
However I hope this helps you anyway.
