Going through some old paperwork just now, Ginny found a copy of an accident report of a little fender-bender I was involved in one evening in Grand Forks back in March 2018 not far from the Fire Hall Theatre.
I remember how quickly a police officer arrived, how young he looked and how good he seemed to be at his job as he filled out his report on our accident.
Waiting for something or other to happen, we talked about how long he’d been with the Grand Forks Police Department, where he was from and how much he liked Grand Forks. Just talking with him calmed my somewhat rattled nerves a little. I have always remembered how kind he was to me, but I never realized until just now, his name was Cody Holte, Badge No. 639.
For those who don’t know, Cody was killed in the line of duty in May 2020.
