Hi and thanks in advance. It's going to South America, and to multiple recipients, hence the 3rd person.As usual I may have screwed up a lot, but what I'm most unsure of is the tenses/voices I've used. Show me the error of my ways, please

Hola amigos,
Me gustaría enviarles mis deseos por un super bueno año nuevo para todos nosotros. Hace un rato desde he tenido noticias de Eduardo y Alicia, pero sé que Graciela está preparando viajar a Cuba. Está un miembro del "jet set" ahora. Dile hola a Fidel para mi. Estoy seguro que querrá hablar contiigo. Espero que ustedes y sus familias tuvieren un año magnifico. Abrazos a todos de Los Estados Unidos,
Su amigo gringo,
Steve

She's a member of the jet set now. Say hello to Fidel for me. I'm sure he will want to speak with you.I hope that you and your families will have a magnificent year. Hugs to everyone from the US.
Your gringo friend,

"Estar" cannot be used with nouns, so forget about "Está un profesor", "Está un...", "Está Lazarus". Avoid the future subjunctive (tuviere), unless you know what you are doing.

OK. I tell you what, How about I wash your car or walk your dog in return? Next time I'm in your country or state that is. Its new year's eve, Have a great one by the way!
If I get no replies, I'll just have to send this mess as is. Oh well, maybe they'll be drunk enough that they'll get a laugh out of it
