Translation please - Attached letter from my cousin Davide Perlini.

Post by Carlukeman » 11 Jan 2019, 18:34

Dear Friends,
I am a new member to this site and hope that some one can help me translate the attached text which I received written in a late Christmas card from my cousin's wife.
I should briefly explain that I found my cousin who is called Davide Perlini (Jackson) some years ago following an Italian TV program search for his father. Through my help he found is Scottish father (who sadly had passed away) and his half sister. If you search on YouTube you will find a video of Davide's journey to find his father. Normally Davide and I would correspond by email and I would use Google translate to read and write to him, unfortunately I am finding the text in this Christmas card difficult to read and consequently translate.
I am very worried because the card is not signed by Davide and some of the text that I can read makes me concerned that something is wrong.
I would be very greatful for any help with this request.

Kind Regards,

John Jackson

Festività 2018/2019
Cari John e Rita
come da messaggio che vi ho mandato la notizia che Davide ci ha lasciati è stata per me un duro colpo.
Mi manca moltissimo, Davide era una bellissima persona, un marito, un padre, un compagno, un sostegno, un amico.
Siamo stati insieme per 47 anni che rimpiangerò sempre. Mi dispiace se non sapevate nulla. Avevamo dato la notizia per FACEBOOK perché era un momento di grandissimo dolore.
Ora piano piano io e mio figlio Alan stiamo elaborando il lutto.
A voi cugini cari, un grandissimo abbraccio nel ricordo di Davide e tantissimi auguri di Buone Feste 2018-2019.
Un forte abbraccio
???? Perlini
