HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The parents of one of the children killed in the Newtown school shooting say they appreciate the support they have been receiving from the Baltimore Ravens.
Bob and Michele Gay, who are originally from Maryland, are the parents of 7-year-old Josephine, who died in the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The devoted Ravens fans say they attended the playoff game in Baltimore against the Indianapolis Colts through the generosity of Ravens cornerback Chris Johnson. The team also hung a memorial banner for their daughter and gave pins to their employees with Josephine’s name.
The family says they are planning to wear purple as they watch the Ravens in the Super Bowl and think of their daughter, who had an affinity for all things purple.
