      Warm Wishes from the Noss Family smile

      I think "Warm wishes from the Nosses" is grammatically correct, as odd as it may look. Noss' and Noss's are not correct.

        Livelonger is 100% correct.

        Yes, livelonger is correct. The apostrophe on Noss' refers to a family possession. "Warm wishes from the Noss' house" for instance (if your house would like to send warm wishes).

        Since my last name is Andrew (no "s"), I don't like sending cards "from the Andrews" since so many people get our last name wrong as it is. So, I send "from the Andrew Family." It works well--and it looks good, as will "from the Noss Family."
