    Question meaning

    Hi,

    Is the sentence "please give our love to your family" a common way to finish a letter ? like sending best wishes ? What is the real meaning of it ?

    thanks

    Re: meaning

    People frequently end letters with this phrase, but it is definitely not a standard ending to a letter (like Yours faithfully).

    It does mean to send your best wishes. We interpret it to mean tell your family we love them or tell your family we are thinking of them.

    thank you very much Niall ! I suppose then this must be used for someone who is really close to the family ?

    thanks again

    Not always. It is almost polite to ask after the family and send them your best wishes.
    To ask after is what we call it when we ask questions like How is your family?.
