“Riding our bikes through the area was one of our favorite pastime activities. We went to bed and I told him I would get him a new one this week!,” said Hartmann.

After seeing how upset the boy was, Deputies Cunningham and Phillips arrived the next morning with a new bike they bought with their own money.

“Wow what a blessing these two guys were to our family,” Hartmann said.

Hartmann’s son sent the two deputies a handwritten card thanking them and asking to hang out and maybe play basketball together.
