I didn't know Holly. I was told about her several years ago on the 3-day breast cancer walk by her co-workers. They gave me a bracelet . Each year I would ask the police on the walk how Holly was doing so it saddens me to see her obit. Alot of people were pulling for her. She touched my life and I never met her. Carry her heart in your heart forever.

LIVE YOUR DASH

Its what she spent the last 8 years fighting and doing her best to instill in us.

She was so much to so many people. She always put being Alexs mom first. But on top of that she was a fiercely loyal friend, a remarkable police officer/detective and someone who dedicated so much of her precious time to people in need.

During her battle with cancer she volunteered her time to a cold case, which she solved (of course)and brought a family answers and justice after so many years! She was an advocate and mentor for children who had fallen on hard times. She donated to so many causes but none of us will ever know to what extent because she was humble and gave from her heart, not for praise.

Holly was the one who rallied up the troops and planned the wine bus, the dinners the vacations....and we cant forget, The Scrpbook Parties. We were baseball moms and token softball players.

Some of my best memories include Holly and through the tears, theres a lot of laughs when I think of the stupid stuff we use to do. She was a wonderful friend and she will be missed by so many.

Holly was our next door neighbor on Brian Way for years. I saw her soon after being diagnosed, and she was so strong and committed to giving Alex the best years of her remaining life. Rest in Peace, Holly.
