    all my family

    I think there is a little strange when saying all my family, such as:
    I say faithful thanks to you on behalf of all my family.
    besides, usually we say hearfelt / sincere / warm / grateful thanks instead of faithful thanks.
    Do you agree with me?

    Re: all my family

    '...on behalf of all my family' is fine.

    I agree about 'faithful thanks'. That's wrong.

    "Faithful thanks" might imply a religious or spiritual meaning.

    "all my family" is fine. "on behalf of my whole family" or "on behalf of my entire family" would probably be more common.
