This postcard photo is of my wife's grandfather Aaron (Orka/Orel) Joffe and (apparently) his sister from about 1926. They were in Anyksciai, Lithuania at the time.
I would appreciate it if someone is able to translate the postcard.

Floated over the big emptiness,
Only to find those who seek for us,
Swam over running and rapid water,
Only to indeed come to our dear cousins.

15/4 year 1926

For everlasting memory to our dear cousin Aaron Mendel Glass
