Victor Cruz knows he will play Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers with a heavy heart. His maternal grandmother, Lucy Molina, passed away on Monday at the age of 77. It was his beloved abuela who taught him how to salsa, the dance that became his signature touchdown celebration.
“She meant the world to me,’’ Cruz said. “She practically, besides my mom, she practically raised me, so it’s obviously something tough to go through. Just have to take it in stride, understand it was her time to go and God just wanted another angel up there with him.’’
Cruz said he will attend services for his grandmother on Thursday and also the funeral on Friday after the Giants are done with practice.
“Monday, I was with her on the hospital bed, taking her last breath I was with her,’’ Cruz said.
