The first one looks like:

cara fratello
questa è mia moglie la nostra sorella e mia cognata

Dear brother,
This is my wife, our sister, and my sister-in-law.


I am not even going to try the other two. :!:

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)
