Thoughts and prayers to the Hanover Grande family.
So many memories about Chris growing up, hockey, fishing, the pool table, the swimming pool. I used to always think to myself that no one had a skating stride like Chris, so pure and strong, he seemed to fly out there on the ice.
I remember his kindness especially when l was young, 5 years younger than Chris, he was always good to me and my brothers.
But my best memory is of Chris is of him introducing me to music and my love of music. Listening to Chicago records endlessly. "Beginnings", "24 or 6 to 4", nonstop etc. It really was the beginning of my interest in performing, a little known fact.
Thanks for the kindness, the memories and the music Chris.

Chris always greeted me with an infectious smile and big hug. I fondly recall swimming in the pool at the Hanover house with the Grande cousins and running around the yard having great fun. I will think of these fun childhood times and miss my silly cousin Chris. Much love -- Laura

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Praying Chris’s journey to eternal life was a smooth one. Gone way too soon. Rest In Peace Chris.

Chris was a great big bother. He taught me how to laugh, when he wasn't scaring the daylight out of me. I remember him putting me in net, and taking slapshots at me. He was a great hockey player, and introduced me to the game. And because of him, I am a Bruins fan through and through. Thanks for the laughter and the tears. I will miss them both. But nothing will compare to missing you. Rest in Peace, Chris. I love you!!

So many memories. Watching him skate and play chess with Dad. Oh the chess games. He loved playing with Dad. Playing cowboys and Indians. The pink panther song. Canon ball rallies in the pool. All the girls asking me if he had a girlfriend. So many memories. He loved his family. So grateful he is in peace with Mom.
