We want to thank Steve Lund and Dave Bardsley and also want to recognize them for their service that day. We are so pleased to hear the were awarded for their work. They, their team, Officer Dana Savage and the dispatcher will always hold a special place in our hearts for the excellent care they administered to Josh that day. Their immediate response to the accident and their knowledge and skills saved Joshua! Josh continues to amaze us and is happy, healthy and enjoying a normal life of a 16 year old boy. He has gained a greater appreciation for the value of his life and his faith in God. We are filled with gratitude for the love, prayers and support of our friends, family and the wonderful community of Pleasanton! Love, the Larson Family

We are lucky to have people in our community that don't look at their job as just a paycheck. They are truly involved in the community and go above and beyond.
