A blessing to caring staff at Manatee Memorial Hospital

June 30, 2013 

On May 30, my husband Ivan "Van" Hartwell was hospitalized with a very rare disease at Manatee Memorial Hospital. To say the doctors and nurses were awesome is an understatement!

During "Van's" stay until he went to meet our Lord on June 14, I was surrounded by kind and caring people.

Thank you all for your prayers, cards and kind deeds.

God bless you all.
