BOSTON (CBS) — Chad Ochocinco has had a whirlwind month, from getting  released by the Patriots to joining a new team in Miami and planning his July 4 wedding to Evelyn Lozada in between. If he decided he was too busy for fans, most people would understand.

Yet, the wide receiver helped out a fan on Tuesday to create a rather special moment.

“I’m feeling pretty low today,” Twitter user @cheryl2958 tweeted at Ochocinco. “Lost my hubby 2 weeks ago. Together 30 years. Very hard. Please pray for me. Thanks.”

Ochocinco, who claims he reads every tweet sent his way, responded by asking, “[Do] you have a passport?”

When @cheryl2958 — or Cheryl Minton from Franklin, Ohio, as she’s known in the real world — said she did, Ochocinco wrote, “Can you pack and come to the wedding?”

Again, Minton confirmed she could.

“Just start packing,” Ochocinco wrote. “Evelyn will make arrangements…see you tonight/early a.m. … Turn Up Ms. Cheryl, bring ya smile, dancing shoes and appetite… let me know when you receiver confirmation.”

Minton’s response was simple.

“OK,” she wrote. “I’m flabbergasted! I love you!”

Ochocinco posted a photo of himself and Minton on Twitter on Wednesday night.
