Heartwarming letter sent to Newton shooting victim, Jack Pinto – USA Today

Six-year-old Jack was gunned down in the massacre last Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The letter, surfaced by Hypervocal, 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.
Love,
John

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.


Jack-Pinto-USA-Today-CNN-Newton-shootingCruz 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.”

After learning he was the first-grader’s favorite player, the Giants team member dedicated Sunday’s game to him, writing “Jack Pinto” and “my hero” on his cleats and gloves.
