I met Hartwell many years ago when he worked for Dr. Dorothy. C. Hall. It was immediately clear that Hartwell was a very genuine and committed Christian. He was a man who radiated: • A genuine Christian attitude to life. • Kindness. • Honesty. • Integrity. • Generosity. • Always very helpful. Hartwell was simply a man of the highest quality and much loved and respected. He was in every way “An honourable Gentleman” He ranks pari passu (Latin for equal rate, equal footing) with my late father of being the nicest man I have ever met. If anyone deserve a place on the right-hand side of God, it is Hartwell. Knud Blaesberg From Denmark.
