DANYA BACCUS: Fallen Boulder officer Eric Talley's being remembered as a selfless and courageous police officer with a fierce love for his family and community.
JARED POLIS: Officer Talley gave his life just as he lived it, in the service of others.
DANYA BACCUS: The 51-year-old was the first officer responding to last week's supermarket shooting that left Talley and nine others dead.
DANIEL NOLAN: Everyone in that store that fateful day, Monday last, was trying to get out. But some were trying to get in, going into harm's way and going into the mouth of hell. And one did not return.
JARED POLIS: And we will never forget the sacrifices that he made and the sacrifices that your family has made. As governor, I speak for the entire state of Colorado when I say that we are here for you and we will always be here for you.
DANYA BACCUS: Angela Stephens traveled from Kansas City to show her support for law enforcement. She was among those who waved flags as a procession of 500 emergency vehicles headed to the service.
ANGELA STEPHENS: In one particular moment in time, you always need the police. They have no idea what call, the next call they're going to get and if it's the last call that they're going to get.
DANYA BACCUS: So far, police have not determined a motive for the shooting. The 21-year-old suspect faces 10 counts of first degree murder. He is undergoing a mental health evaluation before his next court appearance in May.
Officer Talley leaves behind a wife and seven children.
MARIS HEROLD: Your father was kind. Your father died a hero. There's no doubt, because of his bravery and quick action dozens of innocent lives were saved.
