    The key is to translate the intention, thought and feeling of the whole thing, not just the direct translation of the words.

    "How are you Darlene and Mike, I want to tell you I miss you all very much, here in Cuba it's very hot and the sun is very strong. I am really hoping that November will come soon, to see you again and join together as family."

    That's the gist of it, not a word for word. I did add some punctuation to make it an easier read. [​IMG]
