Default Can someone translate this for me?

Hi. My mom has an old picture that her Armenian relatives gave her when she was a child. There is writing on the back and I was wondering if anyone could translate it for me and my mom?



I apologize for the large size.
Any help at all is much appreciated.

The handwriting and the lexicon makes it kinda hard to understand, so it may be not very correct.

Dear Jabob.
I'm sending this picture as a memento to you and my dear bride. I went to Jerusalem last year. Got sick there, as it shows up on the picture. On the right side of the picture is your elder sister Mari. I am guilty(?). You know this place. Saint ??? cemetery door. Just wanted to clarify this photo. And I'd like to have one of your family photos. Jacob, how is your health?
Your mother, that prays day and night for you.

Dear Jacob (Hakob)
I am sending you and my dear daughter in law my photo for your memories. Last year I went to Jerusalem and got poorly there as you can see from the picture. On the right side it is Mary, your elder sister. The other is me, the guilty one (refers to her sickness probably). And the place, you know, is forecourt's door of the tomb of the Holy Resurrection (refers to Jesus). Explain to my Sonea the meaning of this picture. I would also like to have your family picture. Jacob how is your health?
Your mother,
Who prays for you day and night

Wow! Thank you guys so much.

@ Meme: Your translation seems the most accurate as the picture is that of my great-grandmother and her daughter in front of Jesus' tomb in Jerusalem. My mom is so excited to finally have a translation! She's been carrying this picture around for YEARS.

Thanks again!
