Retired Professional Football Player Knows the Meaning of True Love

January 1st, 2012 by Michael Tabor

Last week I blogged about how despicable the GOP republican presidential nominee and former Speaker of the House was for hypocritically denouncing the lecherous behavior of then President Bill Clinton while all along he himself, Newt Gingrich, was having an affair as his first wife lay dying in the hospital.
Thankfully, goodness, decency, and true love do exist. Chris Draft, a 12-year professional football veteran did not abandon his dying fiancé, in fact he married her a month ago. Chris Draft was with her throughout her long bout with lung cancer and he demonstrated his love and commitment even before he took the vow of “sickness and in health.” His love of his life was so weak and sick on her wedding day that she was confined to a wheelchair.  Mrs. Keaasha Monique Rutledge, a precious human died today and will not live to see 2012. Chis released a statement that will surely tug at your heartstrings:
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.
