Redonkadoodles Thank you cards

Recently my Dad had to be hospitalized (a couple of times.)
He just couldn't say enough wonderful things about all of the people that helped care for him.  He was at St. Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.  First, he was on the 4th floor.  That stay lasted for about a week.  His second stay was on the 6th floor and that one was just shy of 2 weeks.  Needless to say, he got to know some of the techs, nurses, housekeeping staff, etc quite well.

Since I don't live in Georgia, I wasn't able to see him much.  Although hubby and I did surprise Dad with one short visit.  While we were there, it was very easy to see why he was so crazy about the people caring for him.  They were all fantastic....and even put up with his weird sense of humor.  Not an easy task!

I wanted to make some thank you cards for him to send to the staff.  But, given Dad's sense of humor, they couldn't be just any cards.  I decided on this hilarious image by Redonkadoodles.

I have to say that is so my Dad's personality!

Here are a few more pics of the cards that I made for him to send the fine folks at St. Joe's:

I hope the staff enjoys the cards and knows how very much our family truly appreciates their dedication!!
