Pictures show Kraft shaking hands with Reardon, and posing for a photo with Duxbury fire department staff.

"We both have teams," Reardon said in the tweet. "Mr. Kraft understood our team had been through a challenging time. The compassion and sincerity that Mr. Kraft showed to the Duxbury Fire Department will never be forgotten. He is a leader on and off the field."

The visit comes after a difficult call for the department. First responders in Duxbury have received counseling for what they saw at a local home where three children were killed, allegedly by their mother, who was hospitalized for a suicide attempt. The mother is facing charges in the deaths, prosecutors have said.
