Daddy your the most amazing man, father, grandfather and companion. When I was down you brought me up, when I was weak you made me strong. No matter sunshine or a storm you always made my heart feel warm. I carry in my heart the memories we built and the love we shared. I love you daddy ... Go rest high on that mountain your work on earth is done.

We remember Chuck from Alsip Park Dist.when we first moved here in 1976. More so when our first child started going to Pre-school at the park. He ALWAYS had a smile on his face and always had something to say to you. He will be missed.

We met Chuck when we moved to Hanover Place April of 2011. From the moment we met him, he showed us so much of GOD's love through his beautiful smile, his handshake, his kind words and his hugs. Whenever Dennis goes to Hog Wild, he will remember Chuck because Chuck
Introduced Dennis to the HUGE Pork Chop. I will remember him for introducing me to P0ps, Tinley Park, DELICIOUS hot dogs. Chuck ALWAYS gave so much of himself, as well as his family, to his Hanover Place Family. Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our HEARTS and we are NEVER the same. Thank you GOD for bringing Chuck into our lives, and we love and thank you Chuck for all the beautiful memories you gave us to FOREVER recall when we think of you. Our FAVORITE memory is the "4 Dumplings". (Smiles)

Daddy thank you for being a great father, grandfather and great grandfather. Thank you for all of the great memories,your smile and all of your funny jokes (some really weren't so funny). You have touched so many lives and have left us all with some great memories. It is going to be so hard every day not to hear your voice or see you smile. We were so very lucky to have you with us for those extra 33 years. You will always be in my heart and I will truly miss you . Please give mom and Dawnie a big kiss and hug for me.
Love you and miss you

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the Family of Chuck and Lyn Love.

Chuck will always be remembered for all the great joy and laughter he brought to all of our hearts at Hanover Place.
There was never an activity that went by without Chuck and his family giving so much of their time to all of us. Chuck will always remain in our hearts.

I was surprised to hear this news today. Mr. Galvin was a very nice man and was always very pleasant to me. He will be missed at Thomas Place Apartments for sure by the staff and the other residents. Sending prayers and condolences to his family.
