Victor Cruz Visits Sandy Hook Family -
On the day after six-year-old Jack Pinto was buried in his beloved Victor Cruz jersey, the New York Giants wide receiver made a visit to Connecticut to spend time with the child’s grieving family, according to a report from ESPN.
Cruz reportedly spent 45 minutes visiting with the Pintos at the family’s home in Newtown, four days after their son was one of 26 victims in the most deadly elementary school shooting in American history.
The Giants star didn’t comment on the meeting, but tweeted a short message on Tuesday afternoon.
“Much love to the entire Pinto family,” he wrote. “Great people with huge hearts. I’m sorry again for your loss. Looking at life through a different lens.”
The visit was a private affair that doesn’t appear to have been attended or filmed by the media. That seems to have been the idea.
“It was a successfully private moment and I’d prefer to keep it that way,” one attendee told The New York Post.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver dedicated Sunday’s game to the memory of Pinto after learning that he had been the first-grader’s favorite player. He wrote Jack’s name on both shoes and included the words “my hero” on one.
“My sincerest condolences to the entire Pinto family,” Cruz wrote before the game on Twitter. “My prayers are with you during this extremely difficult time. Today’s game is for you Jack.”
The Post reports young boys wearing Giants blue could be seen playing on the Pinto’s front lawn while Cruz visited. They all left with a bag of Giants memorabilia.
All I can say is you’re a good man, Victor Cruz.
