Retired linebacker’s wife dies one month after their wedding

Retired linebacker’s wife dies one month after their wedding

One month after getting married, former NFL linebacker Chris Draft lost his wife today after a long bout with breast cancer. She was so weakened by the disease that she was in a wheelchair for the private wedding, just one month before she died.

According to yahoo-Draft, who played most of his 12-year career in Atlanta, released a statement on his wife on their family foundation website.

Not just an inspiration, but a light, and a force that led the way with a beautiful, sweet smile and bright shining eyes that both belied the pure steel of her strength and determination.

Strong is too pale, too shallow and too small of a word to describe Keasha's vibrancy… Quite simply, she was ferocious. She fiercely held onto life, and love with a forcefulness that was absolutely awe-inspiring and completely breathtaking. Rest in peace, Mrs. Draft.
