Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sent a very generous and thought-worthy gift to the family of a fallen fan.

Peyton Manning Sends Incredible Gift To Family Of Fallen FanPeyton Manning, who is still a member of the Denver Broncos (despite rumors that he was being shopped for Houston), certainly knows how to send a gift.

Logan Brown, who was a 15-year old student at Reitz High School in Evansville, Indiana, died tragically in March due to an accused drunk driver hitting him head on.

By all accounts Brown was a tremendous Indianapolis Colts and Manning fan. He wanted to attend a Denver Broncos game this season.

So, once Manning heard about this after Brown’s grandmother, Gayle Ricketts, sent him a letter, he sent a little something to Brown’s family, via WFIE-TV in Evansville.

In response, Manning wrote a personal, hand-written letter to go along with gifts.

“[Peyton’s response] blew me away,” Ricketts said. “I called Charles [Logan’s father] when the letter came. I didn’t even open it. I called Charles to come over. I said the Broncos answered me.”
