    Hi AGLace,

    Cantonese is only a dialect in Guangdong Province, China. There are many dialects in this province. If you put them in writing it would be difficult for other people to understand unless they are familiar with that particular dialect. I'll try my best to help you.

    我會唔見左我最親愛同最好記朋友. 我愛你

    Simplified Chinese;
    我会唔见左我最亲爱同最好记朋友. 我爱你

    It would be better for you to translate it in Mandarin/Putunghua to make all Chinese understand.

    Also there are many dialects in other provinces in China such Shanghai, Wuxi, etc. in Jiangsu Province. If you write them in their dialect (actually only in pronunciation). No people in China will understand except people in that districts.

    Cantonese is very tricky dialect. It depends in which occasion the original poster going to use it. If writing it to a girl friend drawing her attention the wordings will be different to using it as an instrument for departing that will be a different story.
