    Default Ello all.

    Hello everybody. I can speak Spanish pretty good and thank my father for taking me to Mexico every year when I was a kid. My fathers family always spoke Spanish to me when I was in Mexico even though they where fluent in English as well. The only issue I have is with writing in Spanish, which bring me to this forum. My father's mother passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 80 and could not attend the funeral since my company had a huge network crash which needed all the help to get back on its feet.

    I want to write a letter to my father's family in Mexico but I can not place my sorrows and feeling on paper. I don't want to mess things up and make it worse by having them trying to understand what I am saying. I learned a lot from my vacation days when I was a kid in Mexico. She taught me about respect and hardship raising four sons and three daughters (one of which is my father). All have become professionals and stayed close as a family. I have tried a few free online translators but some of the words are misplaced or they just add fluff.

    This is a great site to get some education on writing and maybe meet new friends.

    Hi segura01! Welcome to the forum!
    Why don't you post your letter and your translation and we'll have a look at it and help you with some correction (if any).

    BTW, I'm sorry about your grandma.
