I would like to know the gist of this postcard sent by my maternal grandmother(?) to her in-laws in the US following my grandfather's death. I would appreciate a more complete translation of any important information.

Dear and devoted in-laws, very dear and honored brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law and their dear children, may you all live and have a good life.

My dears, yesterday I wrote you a postcard which you have surely received. Today I received a letter from the dearly beloved mother, may she live. The letter was written exactly today 6 weeks ago and it didn't reassure me at all. On the contrary, my grief is great when I think that the dearly beloved mother is not well and I notice the she was very upset and made great efforts to write the letter. I put my hope in dear God that now the dear mother is surely well again. I beg dear God with tears in my eyes that quick help will be sent to her, and that I may have the merit to receive very shortly a second letter from the dearly beloved mother saying that she has fully recovered. The older children, after having read the letter, were covered by a dark cloud, and every child separately prays to dear God for the health of the dear grandmother, may she live, and may dear God take up all our prayers together. I ask the honored brothers-in-law to specify exactly in what consists this illnes. I would have written to Keyle separately but...(you've cropped off the last sentences)

Hope this helps you.
