Former NFL tight end Todd Heap and his family are encouraging people to "share hugs and spread love and joy through random acts of heartfelt kindness" on Wednesday in honor of their late daughter's birthday.
Police say Heap was moving a truck that ran over and killed his 3-year-daughter Holly in the driveway of their suburban Phoenix home on April 15. Mesa police said impairment was not a factor.
Heap and his family received an outpouring of condolences and sympathy from friends, former teammates and fans of the former Pro Bowl tight end, who played for the Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals. Heap retired in 2013 after playing 12 seasons in the NFL.
