Reflections for Police Officer Celena Charise Hollis

Thinking of you

It’s my first time walking around the lake at City Park enjoying the peacefulness I felt, when I happened to see your memorial. It’s sadden me to find out the your precious life was taken senselessly by yet another individual with a gun at such a beautiful place. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication in protecting us citizens which in turn took your life as you tried to protect those in danger. May your memory live on in your family, fellow officers and friends.

I never knew you, but I run around City Park lake often. I always stop by your sign. There are people in this department that still talk about how wonderful you were. You will never be forgotten.

I remember when you first walked into the First Precinct in the City of Detroit. I worked with you and I knew you were special. I remember your going away party you made me the best apple margarita and that sent me home

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Celena, you are always spoken of with respect and admiration for how you lived your life and for your service until the end. As the lines on the Denver Police Department memorial says, "If their names, remembered, give us courage, their sacrifice shall not have been in vain." You give faith and courage to all of us. Smile on!

It’s been three Years ago today,
My friend I knew, she went away.
She left this earth, she could not stay
My friend, she left three years today.

I missed you then,
And I miss you still,
Others who have lost,
Know how I feel.

I know you’re in Heaven up above,
Watching over all, all that you love.
So until the day we meet again,
I’ll say a prayer and remember my friend.
