Help translating a letter from Italy

Postby italian059 » 13 Mar 2012, 15:27

A friend of mine sent out some letters to Italy in hopes of finding some of her family. She received a letter back and she is having a hard time translating. Would someone please translate this letter. There are two pages attached.
Thanks so much.

Dearest Salvatrice, it's Carmelina. How are you? I hope you are fine; I received your letter of January and I wrote soon, but I stll have not received an answer; I hope you received mine, even if you could not answer.
Since I received your first letter, I love so much writing to you, I don't know why. I want to write and know you soon. I sent you pictures of my family, of me and Antonio, to show you who we are (by email ?), but maybe you've not seen them yet. Send us your pictures, so we will know you too. I show you Favara on postcards; one is the church where you were baptized, the "Matrice"; the others are views of the town. How long haven't you been to Favara? Haven't you been here since you went to America? Why didn't you look for us sooner?...

...I say roots of your land can't be cut; did you miss Favara, even if you were so young when you left? Don't you remember it? I know the street where you lived when you were here, and the "Matrice" Church, and via Ragusa; when you come I will take you there. I can't send you some sweets from Favara, as I asked at the Post Office, and they said it takes a lot of time for you to receive a parcel from me, and the sweets would go uneatable. When you come to Favara, I will have you try all the sweets of Favara; do you like sweets? I hope so, I like them a lot...

...now I don't want to bother you; I hope you answer soon; I'm waiting anxiously for your letter. Carmelina, Antonio, Angelo, Adriano, Kevin.
I hope to see you very soon; five more months and we will know each other.
