In the sentence : " Please give our love to your folks! Hope your dad is doing well and still making his pepper sauce ! "
why the present continuous was used in : hope your dad is doing well. If it was said Hope your dad is well would that be the same ?
second question. was anything implied in the use of present continuous in both sentences? and the use of the wrod still?
third question: there is no subject before hope. As there is a sentence before the word can we consider them as one and take as we hope or I hope ?
Thanks Fiona !
your answer to the third questions is a bit confusing. Does it mean that we can understand as we hope? Only we hope?
i stated in my question we hope or I hope ? and your answer was yes.
Could you clarify please.
Thanks again !
Please give my family's love to your family and, also, I hope your dad is feeling better/healthier these days, well enough to be up and around in the kitchen making his pepper sauce.
Does that help?
thank you Casiopea Helps a lot!

isnīt the word folks in american english used to refer specially to oneīs parents ? and not to refer to the whole family as in British english?
Thank you very much for your help!
