After Tragic Death, NFL Community Helps LDS Pro Player Remember 3-Year-Old Daughter in Sweetest Way

On April 14, 2017, the unthinkable happened when retired NFL tight end and Latter-day Saint Todd Heap accidentally hit his 3-year-old daughter with a truck while in his driveway.

"We cannot imagine the heartbreak and sorrow Todd and Ashley's family feels right now," the Baltimore Ravens said in a statement. "We believe their deep faith and tremendous support from friends and family will help them through this unimaginable time."

On May 3, the Heap family decided to honor their daughter Holly on her birthday. On a website called hugsfromholly.com, the family wrote: “Holly was known to give the best hugs, and her love for everyone and everything in life was contagious. Let’s spread this joy as we scatter sunshine in Holly’s honor on her birthday.”

NFL players as well as people from all over the world participated, spreading Holly's love and light:
