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.
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.
Ughhhhhh I said I’d get a 4.0 this quarter and I ended up with an A- in 100C. It’s honestly better than I expected after the final, but sadly not good enough for the school I’m about to go visit right now. SDLKJFLSKJFL Okay it’s really okay though because this school isssss the dream and if I want to at least take a self guided tour then I’m going to go and take a fucking self guided tour. Kk better go before everyone wakes up. Hiphip hooray for all A’s during fall quarter though. SDLKJFSKLDJF ughhhh I think/hope winter quarter will be better- since it’ll be the second quarter of Theta&PAD, Muir Senator& Chief of Staff, and I’ll finish BBoxer internship half way through. No next quarter definitely will be better. LkdjksjflKJSlfk Okayokay just concentrate on the rest of this trip because it’s been amazing so far. Time to go walk around Harvard Law in my mittens that make my fingers look like fat sausages ♥
Mom: Are you ready for your trip? Me: Yes! Mom: Where are you living in Boston? Me: With Monica at Harvard. and I’ll probably see Tiff & Michelle there too. Mom: And you’re going to look at law schools? Me: Mhmm I’m going to go look at law schools while they do other things. Mom: Where are you living in New York? Me: Ohhh…I don’t know. Mom: What are you going to do there? Me: Mom, I’m not really sure yet. Mom: So you’re going to have no home, no plans, and no winter clothes….in New York City. Me: I bought some coats. Mom: So you wasted a couple hundred dollars to be a homeless girl across the country? Me: No, it’s kind of an adventure. Mom: I don’t care if this is advantage! It’s dangerous. Me: Hahahaha no Mom, not advantage..ADVENTURE. And I spent a month alone in Hong Kong I think I can do this. Mom: Okay adventure. You better get some advantage out of this adventure then. Me: I willlllll. Mom: and Hong Kong was different. Your dad was there. Me: Yeah, but now he’s not…you know? So I kind of just want to go somewhere and do things. I don’t know…is that okay? Mom: Sigh…okay, yes. It’s okay. Just bring your card because you will get cold and want to check out a hotel room. And make sure you bring home a husband from Harvard. Me: HAHA okay promise.
