“As all of you know, investing in his students and their future was very important to Dr. Christopher Lovely.

In lieu of flowers for Chris, we would like to give you the opportunity to donate to a scholarship in memory of Dr. Lovely at the University of Mobile. This would go towards helping some of the students who knew and loved Dr. Lovely!

Thank you in advance and know that we, The Lovely Family love and appreciate all of you very much! And now he is surrounded by the most beautiful music he will ever hear.
