Pinto was a Giants fan who called Cruz his favorite player. The wideout visited the family for more than three hours, one day after Jack was laid to rest wearing a No. 80 Cruz jersey.
Said one guest at the house on Tuesday: "It was a successfully private moment, and I'd prefer to keep it that way."
A classy gesture by Cruz, who understands his presence alone can lift a community in unthinkably trying times.
