Say what you want about some of his antics on and off the field, but Chad Ochocinco Johnson deserves some respect for this random act of kindness.

One of Johnson’s 3,563,678 Twitter followers, @cheryl2958 (Cheryl Minton), has been reaching out to the Dolphins wide receiver over Twitter consistently. One of her tweets wished him and his fiancee, Evelyn Lozada, a good life together after she had lost her husband.

@ochocincoI just lost my husband of 30yrs. You have never had that kind of pain. I hope you & Eve have a long & happy life.

— Cheryl Minton (@cheryl2958) June 26, 2012

She sent another similar tweet to Chad on July 1 and another earlier on Tuesday — the day before Chad and Evelyn’s wedding. This time Chad responded by inviting the woman to his wedding (each tweet begins with Chad’s response to Cheryl):

You have a passport? RT @cheryl2958: I’m feeling pretty low today. Lost my hubby 2 weeks ago. Together 30 years. Very hard.

— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 3, 2012

Can you pack and come to the wedding? RT @cheryl2958: @ochocincoYes I do.

— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 3, 2012

Check ya DM… Just start packing… Evelyn will make arrangements… see you tonight/early a.m. RT @cheryl2958:Yes.where is it?

— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) July 3, 2012

Johnson asked Cheryl if she had a passport and when she confirmed, he told her to pack her bags for La Fiesta Del Ochocinco. No other questions asked.

Very classy move by Johnson offering some help to a woman in need. Now all he needs to do is not play Call of Duty during the ceremony like he did during his proposal, and it should be a magical day.

Oh, and Cheryl’s Twitter profile says only that she’s from Franklin, Ohio, and: “I love animals, reality TV and MMA”

God bless that combination of interests.
