Earlier today, USA Today reporter Yamiche Alcindor shared this heart-stopping letter that was written to 6 year-old Newton shooting victim Jack Pinto (who was gunned down in the massacre last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School) by his best friend, John.
The letter reads,
Jack, You are my best friend. We had fun together.
I will miss you. I will talk to you in my prayers.
I love you Jack.
According to Yahoo, the first-grader, who was a big fan of New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, was also remembered by the pro ball player. Cruz paid his respects to the Pinto family one day after Jack was buried in his favorite Victor Cruz jersey.
Cruz tweeted after the visit, “Much love to the entire Pinto family. Great people with huge hearts. I’m sorry again for your loss. Looking at life through a different lens.”
The Giants team member also dedicated Sunday’s game to him, writing “Jack Pinto” and “my hero” on his cleats and gloves.
