A full translation of this Hebrew message written to Lil Spiwak, age 16, who was visiting Romania with her father, Abram Spiwak, in 1929. She met many members of her father's extended family who wrote in her travel diary. Who wrote this message in Lil's diary, when, and what does it say?

1/17/2012 1:44 AM NOTE= This is NOT a literal translation! Just the basics:
"...we meet all types of people and shapes along our travel in life. Some are a good laugh and playful with pleasant voices but it all passes and forgotten when new things appear along our travel. Such is life.
We met yesterday and I am sure that a few months from now you will forget the name of the writer..."
M(?). L__GMAN [maybe LANGMAN]

You have the essence of the poem in the above messages. I think his last name is indeed LANGMAN first initial could be VAV (usually translates to W or V) but it could also be Mem (as is also ascribed in the last name and if it is indeed LANGMAN). Mem would be M.
