RIP Celena may you be at peace and may your daughter grow into the woman you were. I am so sorry for your loss to her.

It is always sad when someone who devotes their live to helping others passes away but doubly so when it is senseless. I hope her daughter always remembers her Mom as a giving and devoted person. Rest easy

Only 26 yrs? Her daughter has lost more time with her mother than that.

So damned sad. RIP sweet girl who just wanted to protect others. No heart is bigger than that of a Police Officer. People just don't seem to realize that somehow. I pray that your daughter has the best life ever and is reminded all the time how brave her mother was.

That's heartbreaking. And that piece of garbage walks away with only 26 years. I hope it's hard time. How about Life without parole for that gutless murderer of a brave Police Officer

My niece, My friend....I love and miss you so much. It's still hard to believe that you are gone. We had a lot of fun times growing up from kids to adults....from sleepng bags and watching scary movies to high heels and clubs. Lol. You are missed but will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!

You have laid down my life in service.
You have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between safety and victimization.
You now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, you have left behind those who loved and depended upon you.
You have given your life so that others may live in peace.
My partners and my agency, we will always remember your family, their loss, and will never let time soften our compassion for them.
You guard the gate now and continue watch from above.

Celena, I still think about the night you died and it still breaks my heart because there was nothing we could do to save you, no matter how desperately we wanted to. You didn't deserve this and it still doesn't make sense. But you're not forgotten, you never will be to me at least. Our short interaction forever changed me and I strive to live my life as you did. Thank you for all you did, we miss you.

We honor your service to your community as a law enforcement officer and you will always be remembered and revered. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of our entire family, I wish to extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Celina was killed. May her loved ones continue to be supported by their law enforcement family and other police survivors. Our family grieves with you and for you. To her family, you are in my heart's embrace today.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinguished service Officer Hollis gave to her community and the citizens of Colorado, and the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on June 24, 2012.
