Celena was one of the kindest and gentlest people that I had the pleasure of knowing. She was in the police academy with my husband and never made me feel like a spouse but like family. Reading many of these posts made me smile because for every post there are millions of people who's lives were touched by Celena. Her daughter will know how many people loved her mother. Her organs were donated. Even in Death Officer Hollis is helping people and saving lives. She is now guarding heaven and I wait to see her smile again. Celena, thank you for your kindness. I love you and I will miss you. RIP sister.

I Have So Much Respect For All Our Peace Keepers,Public Servants ..

"A Officer At Heavens Gate "
"Step forward now, Officer.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
she squared her shoulders and said,
"Yes , Lord, but ,
sometimes those of us who carry badges
can't always be saints.
We've had to work most Sundays,
and at times our talk was rough,
and sometimes we've been violent,
Because the streets are very tough.
The Officer then added,
I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, my fellow officer forgave me ,
when I wept womanly tears......
As the Officer waited quietly,

"Step forward now, Officer please
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time and you done your time well ......

Rest in peace Officer Hollis, we have the watch now. It is an accomplishment to have served 4 years with the Detroit Police Department and come out unscathed just to be murdered senselessly while doing your job. God bless the family, friends, and co-workers of this seasoned veteran officer who most assuredly will be missed. Thank you for your service.

A valiant officer, gone from the ranks. Officer Hollis saw a problem and acted to rectify it. A true sheepdog, acting to protect the flock.

The Latin phrase, "Honor, Virtus, Gloria," describes Officer Hollis' actions well: "Honor, Valor, Glory."

Your legacy will live on, Celene Hollis.

35 years on this earth I have been alive, yet it still surprises me on how cold human beings can be towards one another. I have never seen nor ever heard the voice of Celena, yet right now @ this moment I have tears in my eyes and my heart is soooooooo heavy. GOD has your baby now, so let's try and not grieve to much. She's in a better place smiling down on us all.
