MANDY AND GUNNAR HOLTE THANK GRAND FORKS AND AREA COMMUNITIES FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORT

Mandy and Gunnar Holte thanked the community in a press release sent out by the North Dakota National Guard on Friday afternoon.  Mandy Holte is the wife of Cody who was killed while on duty as a Grand Forks Police officer.  The letter is below –
It’s now been over three weeks since the tragic death of our beloved Cody, adoring husband and devoted daddy. Although our grief remains strong, Gunnar and I have been able to rejoice in the persistent, steadfast support from the community of Grand Forks and across the region.
It’s impossible to fully express our gratitude to the countless individuals, businesses, and organizations that took time to send cards and notes, share meals and stories or contribute to the myriad of fundraisers, campaigns, etc. Search #GrandForksStrong, which has evolved from a social media tag into something tangible and meaningful to Gunnar and me, and you’ll get an idea of the magnitude of supporters. The solidarity and camaraderie exhibited in honor of Cody’s legacy have been truly remarkable.
We can only hope all those involved feel any measure of our sincere and eternal gratitude through this all-encompassing THANK YOU. Take care and God bless.
– Mandy and Gunnar
