Former NFL Player Chris Draft So Loved His Newlywed Wife Who Died of Cancer 1 Month Later
Chris Draft was only married to his wife Keasha Ruteleage-Draft for one month before she lost her battle to cancer. Chris was an 11 year NFL veteran who married his wife on November 27th, she passed on December 27th, exactly one month to the day.
You could see the love between the two and that they loved each other endlessly regardless of the foreseen issues they would face. His wife Keasha was wheeled down the aisle in a wheel chair and taking some steps to say “I do” to her husband.
Chris Draft announced to AJC news:
“My wife, (La)Keasha Monique Rutledge Draft passed away today at 12:04 pm. RIP Sweetie,” Draft said on his website, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“Strong is too pale, too shallow and too small of a word to describe Keasha’s vibrancy,” read a statement on Draft’s site. “Quite simply, she was ferocious. She fiercely held onto life, and love with a forcefulness that was absolutely awe-inspiring and completely breathtaking.”
We are so full in our spirits right now. We are just praying there are so many more men just like Chris Draft out there for some women who need them.
God bless him and his family. May God bless him in all he does and continues to do so in honor of Jesus Christ.
