    translation help needed

    Please help me with translation for a phone conversation with non-English speaking parent of my fiancee. I need this transliterated so I can pronounce it reasonably well.

    "Please tell Sveta that I love her and I miss her--tell her it will all work out. Should I call her Friday night or on Saturday?"

    Thank you very much to whomever can help!

    Пожалуйста, скажи Свете, что её люблю и по ней скучаю -- скажи ей что всё будет ОК. Надо ей позвонить в пятницу вечером или в субботу?

    Wouldn't скажите be more appropriate than скажи in this instance, since he'll be speaking to his future parent-in-law?

    Of course you are right, Scotcher.
    This and some other corrections:
    Пожалуйста, скажите Свете, что я её люблю и скучаю по ней -- скажите ей что всё получится [your version was also correct, Jasper, but this one seems to me more suitable here]. Мне ["надо" implies that he is forced to call her] ей позвонить в пятницу вечером или в субботу?

    Transliteration:
    Pozhalusta, skazhite Svete, chto ya yeyo lyublyu i skuchayu po ney - skazhite yey chto vsyo poluchitsa. Mne yey pozvonit' v pyatnitsu vecherom ili v subbotu?

    Well, actually, I've stolen her from rhetoric.
