An impromptu memorial to a Grand Forks high school student continues to receive visitors nearly three months after his death.
It was at the intersection of 6th Street and 2nd Avenue North near Central High School that 16-year-old McCain Endres collided with a car while riding his motorcycle.
A lightpole at the intersection is decorated with messages, flowers, and mementos to McCain from friends and family.
No matter how much time has passed many people still make it a point to visit the site. Since McCain's death, his father Tom and Brother Taylor say moving on has been harder than expected. With the new school year starting, they say it's especially hard as McCain would have been getting ready for his junior year. Tom and Taylor are among the many who still visit McCain's memorial. "Whenever I feel down it's kind of a nice place to go and read what's been said, see the flowers," said Tom. "It helps."
Memorial funds and fundraising money in McCain's name are still waiting to be distributed. McCain's father says he's waiting to talk with Central High School faculty to figure out exactly where the money will go.
