Tragedy for former Cardinal Heap

Posted by Darren Urban on April 15, 2017 – 8:05 am

It is difficult to wrap one’s head around the tragedy that happened Friday, when former Cardinal tight end and Arizona State star Todd Heap accidentally hit his 3-year-old daughter in a driveway, killing her. It’s a terrible situation for any family to endure.

A statement from the Cardinals released Saturday morning:

“Our hearts go out to Todd, Ashley and the Heap family. It is a grief that is beyond words and one which no family should ever experience. Hopefully the prayers, love and support of their incredible group of friends and family provide them comfort that along with their strong faith will lead them through this unspeakably difficult time.”

Heap was a first-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2001, playing there through 2010. He was with the Cardinals in 2011 and 2012.

    So very very sad to read & comprehend. I pray for God’s comfort and strength to somehow, through this sheer blackness of sorrow & heartache, to guide you all to the light of Jesus’s love.
    God bless you & your little Angel forever.

    Todd and family, I am so sorry. Words can do very little to help you in your sorrow. Please know, however, that your little girl, though physically gone, is very much with you. And she will do what she can from the other side to comfort you in your terrible grief. She is with you always.
