I remember sitting with you in training, your laugh, your infectious smile and how you would run those stairs at the stadium. Sadly I also remember the day you passed and the sight of your patrol car haunts me to this day. You are in my heart and always will be.

Officer Chavez,

I remember the day like it was yesterday. A day I will never forget. I had the chance to meet you when you took a report for my sister when her license plate was stolen. You were such a nice lady who took down the necessary details for the report. I thank you for your dedication and service to our community. It an honor to serve the same department and to share our last name.

As part of Cops on Top, I just climbed a mountain with an officer who worked with Officer Vicky Chavez. When we got to the top of the mountain, he spoke so fondly of his memories of working with Vicky that I wanted to find out more about her. I hope Officer Chavez's family knows that she has not been forgotten. Her friends at the Farmington PD still miss her dearly, they think of her often, and I know you do too. I'm sorry for your loss.

This message is for Vicky's family. I was blessed to work with Vicky at FPD and knew her well. Her girls were young ladies back then and I just wanted you to know that she left such an impression on so many people. Here is almost twenty years later and yet, I remember her like yesterday. She was a great woman and I have no doubt that legacy lives on in you. God bless you and know that we have not forgotten.

It seems so long ago since I've felt your hugs. I miss everything about you. I remember the fun we had together and your never ending zest for life. You always had a way of making me feel good in every situation. Peyton and Sam would have loved your energy! There would have been nonstop fun with grandma Vicky! I miss you mom. We will see eachother in Heaven some day. I love you. amber

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Officer Chavez and we honor her distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever.

To the family, friends, and colleagues of Officer Chavez, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with her when she walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that she will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Officer Chavez is distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for her brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family, and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

It was their duty to serve; it is ours to remember.

Dear Vicky;
It has been 17 years and I still miss your laugh and the friendship we shared for so many years. We have had a recent tradegy here in Montrose, and it brought back to memory those sad days when you were taken from us. I love you my friend and will forever remember you, and all you were, and all you gave to in peace until I see you again. Sandy
