French speakers: Help needed!

I collect autographs and was thinking of requesting one of someone French...no, not JHD! Already have hers...

I wanted to write the letter in French as Im not sure how good their English might be...

Now, I don't speak French....because Im English and that is the one true language! (joking!)

Can any French speakers give me French version of phrases like

"Im a big fan of yours!"

or

"Could you send me an autographed photo?"

or

"Forgive me, my French isn't very good!"

Also how do French speakers start and end letters, their equivilent of "Best Wishes" or whatever...

I would use Alta Vista's babelfish but its not reliable!

Ermm...Merci!

Merci...now could you translate this for moi...

"Never trust people who speak French! They are gits! Except JHD obviously."



I think Ill end up just writing it in English, and assume, as we English do, that people will understand.
