Football Player Loses Wife to Cancer One Month After Saying ‘I Do’

December 29, 2011  |  

Using a wheelchair to meet her groom at the end of the aisle, Keasha (Rutledge) Draft married the love of her life, 35-year-old football player Chris Draft, in a ceremony Nov. 27 in Atlanta.  Sadly, just one month later to the date, Keasha lost her battle to cancer and passed away Dec. 27.

Video of the couple’s ceremony and reception shows what an emotional and loving celebration their wedding day was as the bride shares a first dance with her husband, cuts the cake, and tosses the bouquet to guests who hope to find a love as strong as hers.

Chris Draft last played for the Washington Redskins in 2010 but dedicated much of his life to giving back to kids by participating in different service projects including his own Chris Draft Family Foundation, which empowers families to live healthy lifestyles. His friends have asked everyone to send prayers to the families as they grieve during this difficult time.

    Only on Madame Noire would you find a serious piece of offal calling a dead woman a “Ho” and using her death as an excuse to, SHOCKINGLY, berate black women. Can’t get a break even in death. My condolences to the family. Take Caribbean Offal out back and shoot him like the animal he is.

    I know we men have lots of standards to pick up a woman, and there’s
    one website that can almost meet all our different demands:
    (((( B-l-a-c-k-w-h-i-t-e-P-l-a-n–e-t. c-0-m )))) my bros told me
    this; it worked for them, it worked for me; and i’m sure it’s gonna work for u,

    This is what 1 Cor:13 was talking about. This is real love. Someone email this to Chilli.

  • awww simply beautiful…I’m happy that God allowed them to get married and spend christmas together before he took her home. Praying for both families during this difficult time.

  • My gosh! This was so touching, in a world where hate is so rampant (and some of the comments above are proof) it was beautiful to watch two people in love, for richer or for poorer, through sickness and in health and til death did them apart, get married. My thoughts are with their family at this time… Keisha, It was nice to see that even through your suffering you were able to share such a BEAUTIFUL moment with your husband and family before you passed… R.I.P. 

  • I cried watching this, god bless their family.

  • DCNative

    Awwww my heart feeled with joy when I saw how she happy and how she had a wonderful time at her wedding. That’s what you call true LOVE!!!
    May god bless him, the family, and her friends. My prayers will be with them.

  • Tonya G

    To Mr. Draft:  Dear Sir:  I truly admire your spirit and undying lover you displayed for your wife Keasha…I hope you will find comfort in these words…Jehovah God has a wonderful promise in the bible you may want to research just for you….John 5:28, 29…a promise of the resurrection of those in memorial tombs (his unfallible memory)…since death is the wages for sin…Keasha is paid in ful…you have a hope of seeing her again……Tonya G  Bpt CT

  • nkinzi

    Why are you complaining about the cost of the wedding as if you were the one who paid for it. Concentrate on your empty wallet and think of ways to make it full as opposed to hating on the way people spend their money. Can’t even believe I have given you the time of day to try and tell your sorry self off.

  • GaryG

    I am very inspired by this: Chris Draft, working with underpriviledged kids AND supporting his love. I salute you, and pray you will get through this. Keasha: I know you can’t read this, but really, that’s commitment. RIP

  • Missnewnew

    That was a truly beautiful video. I’m glad they were able to confirm their love for one another in God’s eyes before she past away. It looks as though that was one of the best moment of her life. Chris Draft is blessed soul to that for her.

  • Celestial

    This is so sad. May she rest in peace. <3

  • Ilovemyfamily

    You people and your stupid comments about they should not have had a wedding are heartless. They were a couple who had been together for years. Its their money and I think it was very touching, she wanted to marry the man she loved and the man who loved her honored that, in front of God, friends and family. He loved her enough to make this happen….BEAUTIFUL!

  • Djkrockk

    I have watched this video a few times over the last couple days and each time I shed more tears than before. Im 6’3 247lbs tough guy, a man’s man…. but this man’s man couldnt help but cry for this family. Mo matter how much money was spent, this young man brought this young lady a smile and happiness in her life. In my opinion he loved her so much that gave her what she dreamed of.. which almost all women dream of… a big beautiful wedding. As i looked at the video all i see in her eyes was sheer happiness & joy. In his eyes while they was doing their first dance, i personally saw tears of joy, but also sadness. Sadness that he possibly knew the cancer was gonna take her from him. He married her becuz he loved her & she loved him, but maybe he also married her becuz he did not want her to suffer thru this ordeal on her own. A real man wants to take his wife’s pain away & sometimes that cannot be helped. I believe in my heart this young man had the best of intentions when he asked this beautiful woman to marry him knowing the difficulties that lay ahead for them. So in my closing if i could say anything to this young man is hold on to them memories, shes is a much better place now, no more pain, she is with God now looking down on you smiling saying thats my husband, he is the best. You will see her again becuz i have a feeling she will be waiting at the gates for you.


    • Shiron

      Very well put!

  • RCDavis

    Just watched the video, nice-happy-sad story,   Most of us will never get to chose how we die, only how we live, nice that they could bring some joy into the end of her life and perhaps he’ll have some consolation knowing he was able to do so now that she is gone.

    That said, what’s up with all the supernaturalists on this thread?  Y’all are trying to bring your gods into the story?  Leave the proselytizing for a bit and let the family rest, they have earned it – and don’t need you trying to make points on their sorrow and grief!

  • KLM

    Sorry for your loss,May God be with you and the family. I will keep you and both 
     family and friends in my prayer.

  • Jturner-1027

    God bless you to the husband and the family

  • Nisaboo

    Did not see the comment everyone is speaking of but surely it could not match the magnificence of this story.  Awesome! He loved her enough to give her more than likely a dying wish or he wanted her to be his wife before she left this earth.  Utterly Awesome!!!  Thats what we should focus on.  The beauty of real LOVE.  Few can truly give or receive it but it is a wonderful thing to be able to witness.

    The idiot who made the comment just wanted attention and they received too much.  Let ’em go and let God get at ’em.

  • LadyMichelleD

    I never got to see the negative comments below, but thank God that there are still sensitive, caring human beings who can still, feel, hope and believe in the power of love and the miracle that this woman Kesha received.  Thank God miracles still happen and chivalry isn’t dead when a REAL MAN like this steps up and does what it right in blessing the life of another individual and honoring a life commitment like this without hesitation.  Praising God for this and sending my prayers out to Him.  God will certainly bless you for this step of faith, my brother!

  • guest

    such an amazing, blessed love. True love has no boundaries, though thick and thin and til the end. my prayers are with the draft and rutledge families. god bless.

    Now thats love!!! Very Very sweet!

  • Missmiss

    This is really beautiful but I mean I really wonder how long they were together because was there a healthier time he could have done this?! Its beautiful this was probably a lifelong dream of hers but its sad at the same time. I have a cousin thats very sick she got married when she was healthy but her husband is a mess I just hope if I am ever sick I have a true loving and caring partner. 

    • Ifuaskme2

      I’m with u on this. I was wondering the same. Had he done so earlier she would have been entitled to his medical benefits. Why did he act only when it was certain she would die?

      • lsgyrl

        She had her own career and medical benefits.  Keasha was beautiful and smart.  They found out about the cancer in December 2010.  I’m sure the focus was on her health not planning a wedding.   Does it matter anyway?   They had the wedding they wanted.

  • lisa

    that was so heartless. bastard!!!!!

  • JJamly25

    Not even going to waste my time on such negative and insensitive comments.  God blessed them to have a beautiful wedding. You can see the love the two had for each other. I hope he can find solace in knowing he gave the best he could offer to his beautiful bride. No doubt she is among the angels in heaven, having blessed the world with her brief life.

    god bless you and you are in are prayers. I am sure she did happy knowing the love of her life stood next to her at thee end. 2 be absent from the body is 2 be present with the lord. gbu

    Beautiful story of eternal love. This may have been her last wish. Prayers and well wishes to him & the families.

  • Jay

    Even if that is how you truly feel you should keep it to urself. That is a very insensitive comment to make after this woman has died. Maybe she knew there was a possibility that she could die and wanted to have a dream wedding like mostly every woman dreams of since childhood. Maybe he loved her so much that cost was not a factor. Also maybe they were optimistic and thought she would beat this disease. So ppl think before you speak/type. Thanks

My prayers go out to the family during this difficult time but that video left me with a smile on my face because there is no greater love that what was very evident in that video. Thanks for sharing a loving testimony as we enter a new year and may all pause to remember those who have lost someone they love this year!

  • Red1975sexy

    My heart & prayers goes out to the Draft family during their loss. As I watched the video, keasha was very happy to see her dream come true. So sad to hear that she lost her battle to cancer. But thru all the tears of sorrow, joy will come in the morning. God is still good to us all, lean on him.
    May he keep you in his arms….

    What a beautiful story!! That kind of Love is nearly impossible to obtain and Keshia and Chris had it. The love in their eyes for one another was very touching. My prayers are w their family and friends. May the Lord be w you as you face the days ahead. My heart goes out to this family.

  • Queen

    Why would you even fix your mouth to say something so stupid and heartless! You have only shown how ignorant and uneducated you are! God allowed that angel to have the wedding of her dreams to the love of her life so that the husband would remember his angel’s happiness on that day! You definitley need not comment on anything else!!!!

    I could not stop crying and hope I find genuine love like that someday. My prayers go out to to the families of the bereaved and may God console their hearts during this difficult time.

    It’s very hard to let your loved ones go and cancer is a battle that not only affects its victim but their loved ones as well. I pray that Kesha and Chris will someday meet in the sky and be reunited again. Love never dies!

  • Kokko

    Lovely has obviously NEVER had a true love. Otherwise he/she would know that you would spend every dime you have saved in order to share a precious moment like that with a person whom you love and their days are numbered.  God help “Lovely”

  • “Beautiful Flower”

    What a beautiful testament to true love and obedience to God. He stayed right by her side until death did part them. Many are saying that this is the type of man they’d want their daughters to marry. I say this is the man that God made just for her and through this ceremony, He and he show us that there’s hope regardless of our circumstances and that “love” is an action word. To God be the glory! 

    To the family of Keasha Rutledge Draft, I extend my condolences to the family of Keasha Draft, I pray that God’s peace be a blanket of comfort to her family and that He restore their joy. Surely she will live on in your hearts.  Always remember, Earth knows no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

    Keasha, you made a Beautiful bride and I’m happy you had the wedding of your dreams before your homegoing. For the family,
    Father of all mercies and God of all consolation,
    you pursue us with untiring love
    and dispel the shadow of death
    with the bright dawn of life.
    Give courage to this family in their loss and sorrow.
    Be their refuge and strength, O Lord,
    reassure them of your continuing love
    and lift them from the depths of grief
    into the peace and light of your presence.
    Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
    by dying has destroyed our death,
    and by rising, restored our life.
    Your Holy Spirit, our comforter,
    speaks for us in groans too deep for words.
    Come alongside your people,
    remind them of your eternal presence
    and give them your comfort and strength.

  • “Beautiful Flower”

    Dear Lovely,

    I’m interested in knowing if you believe in God. I’m interested in knowing how you’d feel if the love of your life, if you have one, died. This story is about love in action! It’s about someone who believed in his vows before he was even married to his wife. He was her husband before he was her husband and God put these two together to show the world an undying love.  Mr. Draft obviously loved his wife in spite of her illness and he stayed by her side until death did part them. The wedding was a promise that he intended to keep to the woman he must truly love and it’s a testament to all of us that no matter our circumstance, what God put together, no man can keep apart!

    Your comment’s insensitive at a minimum and it’s unconscionable at best. Here it is that someone’s lost a wife, a daughter, perhaps a sister if not by blood, surely by sisterhood, someone’s lost a friend, a co-worker, a mentor, and to this Earth’s garden, a beautiful flower and all you can say is “Damn! All that money on the wedding! What a waste.”

    Perhaps you should consider changing your name/handle to “Heartless” because you don’t do the “Love” part of your name any justice. Your words have pierced ME like a knife. I can’t imagine what they might do to the families of Keasha Draft.  Then again, changing your name to “Heartless” would do no justice either because it takes someone with NO HEART to make a comment such as the one you did.

    God bless and keep you nevertheless!

    Truly beautiful…what an Amazing and Goregous couple. I pray for this family, my heart goes out to you. I am deeply sorry for the loss of your precious Bride.

    • Caribbean in the house

      atleast his money didn’t get taking in the end if she was still alive

  • Strength and Love

    May God rest her soul.
    Chris may God give you the strength to get past the heartache of losing such a beautiful person. Although I do not know you or your wife, you and your wife have shown the world what true love is. I could imagine the love inside the church during your wedding. I pray that the same love you felt during the ceremony is with you during this time.

    I will pray for you and your family during this time. May there be a cure in the future.

    • Caribbean in the house

      i don’t feel sorry for an afro-american ho

  • miller19

    I understand that LOVELY is in need of Love but lets not forget the purpose of the video. GOD has a plan for all of us. This video showed that this man and this woman truly loved each other. The responses to LOVELY is what he wanted and we are all just giving him/her the ammunition to his/her stupidity. I’m sure that Mr. Draft wouldn’t want to see all the negativity to a precious moment that he will never forget. Lets take this moment and show Mr. Draft compassion and sympathy instead of negativity to a useless being.

  • Letitshine3000

    you could have saved your dickhead may have saved money..but you cant take it with you

    I pray that God gives both side of the  family the strength to carry on.  He will send the comforter to guide them and give them peace.   It hurts, but the sting of death is something we cannot get accustom to.  Just know that all is well and she is at peace, and resting with our Lord.

    Hello everyone…This was a bitter sweet story but beautiful and I think we are letting negative people like lovely take the focus away from this story.  Yes, what she said was ignorant but we are giving her what she wants and lacks..ATTENTION…let’s stay focused!

    • Freesouredd

      You are absolutely correct, focus on what this was for. She was beautiful and the power of love is still alive. Such a sad story, I send all my prayers to him and both families involved. The video is very nice and I am trying so hard not to cry. I have a wonderful mate too and oh my, it is really sad…I cant imagine not having him in my life. I lost my Mom to Cancer 6 years ago and it doesn’t get any easier.

  • Sandra

    this video brought tears to my eyes. if this isn’t a powerful testament to love, and the fact that there still are good men, i don’t know what is! i’m so glad that Keasha got to experience one of the happiest days of a woman’s life and she looks gorgeous, elegant and strong. and for Chris, I pray that he and his family find solace in this incredibly difficult time. his love will always watch over him and care for him from the heavens above!

  • reese

    so sad!!!!

  • A Mic86

    Let’s ignore the person with a coal for a heart and remember this man and family who are in mourning for the loss of a beautiful woman. I praise him for giving her the best day of her life even if she only lived a month. We all know for sure that she passed on, as the happiest woman on earth and that must be so comforting even through his grief that she died with love wrapped in her heart all because of him. Forget the ignorant ones, they’re bitter because they never have and never probably will ever experience love so pure and eternal. 

  • Tierral

    She was a very gorgeous bride and this just shows that nothing was gonna stop her from having her dream cometrue..God is so good that he kept her here to marry the person she love and that is amazing. I know you might not know me but my prays is with you and the family.

  • Shawanajackson27

    This was so touching!! :((((((( but: ))))))

  • Sweetnessyo

    This is an  incredible unconditional DISPLAY of Love That I Have Witnessed in a long time, wow brought the tears streaming…

  • Tonitouch22

    This really touched my heart I will pray for Chris and his family… She is such a beautiful women and she looked gorgous… She may rest in peace in not in pain… Amen…

  • MsT

    How ignorant and disrespectful can you be…

  • Beautiful wedding, you could see the love! What a blessing to have been able to share that special day before the GOOD Lord called her home!

    I am amazed at some of the responses, everyone is talking about how ugly Lovely’s post was but some responses to it were no better!

    We need to all pray for one another!

    Be blessed and be better!

  • BrownEyes69

    You are so ignorant.  Be careful what you say because it may come back and haunt you.  God, I pray for ignorant people like this Lovely person that wrote this.

    True love is making dreams come true. True live doesn’t look at the situation or illness but loves from the heart & making sure that live issolid before time runs out. This was true love!

  • Tshy77fsu

    Big Dummy!! No heart, no feelings when u lose someone in ur life look for the same type of negativity. Who cares how u will feel at the time. U better get to knowing God cause ur time is near!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  • Dad

    So lovely when you die will you be considered a waste of life?

  • Summerbaby

    I hope that you will not lift your eyes in hell for making this idiotic comment.  You need to do the “Lovely” thing and apologize for posting such an “Ugly” statement.  Jealousy is an abomination

  • Chablis1976

    Some of us in the world will never know love like that. Beautiful couple, beautiful story. May she rest in peace.

  • Beverly

    Lovely why would you say something like that. Living and loving someone is not about MONEY it’s about people having mutual RESPECT, obviously they loved each and her illness did not matter too him and I see him as a real man for loving his bride and knowing they would not be together in the physically sense for too long but he showed her how much he truly loved her and I think for someone to do this has a heart that is so full of warmth, understanding, sharing of love to a woman he knew was ill but wanted to marry what a GREAT MAN he is.

    Lovely go back and rethink what you said, your comment was inappropriate, people are hurting and you speak of money as a waste. Come now you should get out more and meet people from all walks of life and realize there are many good people in this Universe.


  • Marie40232888

    That was the most beautiful act of love anyone can show towards another in their what ever is going on in their life. God bless these two beautiful souls that God joined together. May he grant the groom comfort in his time of sorrow and sadness as well as her family. Cause earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal… God bless u and keep u may his face shine upon u. And give u peace until they meet again…. Amen…

  • Blackl_56

    Folks, don’t fall into the traps of the devil. Spend no more time giving attention to the negative comments on this and focus on the beauty of what love is really about. Here this is a display of what true love is yet it doesn’t get a fraction of the publicity that the 72 days of Chris Humphrys and Kim Kar’s wedding.
    I don’t get worked up all that easy but I have to admit this story choked me up as I watched the video. A beautiful and genuine display of love in an era when divorce rates are sky high. Much respect for Mr.Darft and my Mrs. Draft rest in peace. She was a beautiful bride, she rocked her dress right! May God be wit

    WOW this story and video was the best emotional wedding of 2011, I’m glad she got to enjoy her last month with her true love that was the best gift he gave her and you could see the joy in her eyes. Do any one know what cancer it was and how long she was suffering.

    God bless!

  • Bmw841

    Lovely you are a very Evil person. All you think about is the wedding. The family is going through a rough time. Because they had lost a love one.

  • Mari42

    y would say that? that was very EVIL of u to say….obviously, he loved his wife enough to INVEST in their love before she passed. SMH

  • Sweetgrannie6

    The person named lovely that complained about the money spd. Aned in ent needs to crawl back under the rock she came from. There are couples that are married for many years that never experience the love these two share and in these days were some spend millions on weddings just for show and no love is true and only stay married for a few days,hours,weeks, or afew months. I found this couple showed true love and devotion. May she R.I.P.and he find solace in knowing abd showing her while alive what true love is

    Damn y’all emotional good story though


  • Anon.

    I think its really beautiful and sooo courageous of him to give her that special day, even with her illness. You may say he wasted his money or wasted his time, but when you truly love someone you would only want to give them the best, even if it means they only have a short time left on earth. This wedding shows that he was selfless and really wanted to give her a great memory

  • Kenicegriffin

    Wow! this Video brung tears to my eyes. Just looking at the Video I know that young lady is in a better place. My prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr and Mrs. Draft.

  • Tnadine1224

    At first I was not going to entertain you with a response, however the Lord laid it on my heart to pray for you. It’s obvious you dont have anyone to love you, which is why you don’t know what true love is or for that matter love yourself. I will defiantely keep you in my prayers, for you dont  know any better. I also pray you will begin to love yourself first to even come close to a love such as what has been displayed to us. I wouldnt dare curse you,for I rather pray for your lost soul. God bless you!

    PS. Remember God loves you and so do I, and there’s nothing you can do about it!

  • RedButterfly81

    This is so sad and more black men need to be more like Chris Draft, he’s one of the true examples of what black love should be. It takes a big heart filled with unconditional love to do what he did for this woman. So sad she couldn’t live longer to enjoy that happiness, may she rest in peace. My prayers goes out to Chris and the family for their loss.

  • Latoyanicole21

    That was not a waste. U are so cold hearted. It could be u one day

  • Essiehickmon

    My heart truly goes out to the family. I lost my mother seven years ago to cancer and we made everyday special for her til the end. Why not spent a million it shows the love that lie deep within. People like herself probably prayed for God to give her the strength to sustain her wedding and enjoy every bit of it! It’s super hard to do something you always dreamed of doing, knowing your days have been cut short and are numbered. So it’s a blessing that God Graced her through it and allowed her to see the Love of people and Him all at the same time! Really hate to see things like this but do know God will strnegthen you in your darkest and weakest time! Please pray, seek God and Listen to Him!

  • Nenalopez82

    Very sad my condolences goes out to him and the family on both sides.. #SupportCancer 100% I lost my aunt to do the same condition.. This made me cry she was beautiful and u could tell how Happy they was..

      Yes they married last month and she passed 2 days ago.

  • Avidreader

    Negative commentary
    such as the one above is sickening. Money is no object when the love is real on
    both sides. Perhaps they were together for a long time before hand and even if
    they were NOT if you know you don’t have a lot of time left you love and live
    like every day is you last!!!!!!! Who knows, your last could be today? I pray
    to God that it isn’t but just imagine that some of your last words were that of
    ignorance, small-mindedness and of a simpleton nature I already know you don’t
    know what there mean so I’ll wait while you get a dictionary and pray for you.

  • Tbless

    May God wipe every tear and hold all near to thee.  May they look to the hills which cometh our help and find strength..Such a beautiful woman, may she rest in peace and blessings to the families.

  • Shana

    It was nice to see that she was able to have a nice wedding and become his wife before leaving this earth. Someone said all that  money what a waste, but it can never be a waste when this man loved his woman so much to give her a wedding even though he knew her condition. It’s sad that she that she had to leave, but I am pretty sure Nov. 27 will be a day he’ll never forget.  

  • Getit!

    Weave on gremlins is a waste. Making it rain is a waste. Love is eternal.

    I am so deeply touched. What a way to celebrate her life. Anybody who was anything to her surrounded them on that day and shared their joy. That till-death-do-we-part love is real. God bless the memory of that lovely day.

      I was in tears as well, I hope I am lucky enough one day to experience this type of love. The kind that lasts a life time.

    What a man, what a man, what a mighty good man. No matter how short their time was, they both were blessed to have found real love! That is the way I felt after becoming a young widow 2 years ago. What a beautiful love story,

    May God bless her beautiful soul and keep him strong as he grieves and begins the arduous journey of rebuilding his life.

    Damn! All that come and egg that wasted to make your dumb, heartless, ignorant evil azz, now that’s a waste!

  • This should make us so grateful of what we have. When you have your health you have everything. He was a very thoughtful and loving young man to give her what she wanted and him too. He just wanted to make her happy and to give her so much more before she past.
    A lot of people will say some dumb and unthoughtful things….It is not about the material things it is making someone so happy even if it is just for one day….May God be with her, her husband, and their families and friends…..

    That’s horrible he lost her only a month after marrying her. And the video was just so touching I saw the love between the two. Goodness this is just heart wrenching.

  • Sho

    My first thought…’he should have married her ages ago’ i will like to know…’what was stopping him’…pause, no answer…that way she could have been more fulfilled, but it is what it is. may she rest in peace with no more pain. 

    • Imp

      Exactly my thoughts. Why wait till she was at deaths door to wife her up?

      • Caribbean in the house

        because she was after for the man money so thats why death came to her. she was going to use him anyway.

      • Caribbean in the house

        i am the real caribe & let me explain something to you. caribe {caribbean} is my name & when i say i’m in the house it means ”i’m on the the site” o.k. so i don’t know who the hell is lovely. i’m a man not a b!tch. if i was a afro-american nappyheaded ho, i would be out selling myself or something but i wasn’t born a b!tch.

    • Jewjewbeed

      Yep. But that day will come when death will have no victory nor sting.  God bless them real good.

  • Yourfavoriteclassyratchet

    You are just upset not only will you not have such a beautiful wedding but no one will have the love and compassion this man had for his wife and you’re not even ill.I mean you are ill,but being an evil,bitter slore is not a medical condition.

    • You sound just like Lovely, you should get together with her you two mutants would make a good couple.

      • Caribbean in the house

        sorry, but i don’t go for stank puzzy afro-american negros females, i’ll stick to my beautiful caribbean/westindies women them.

    • Avidreader

      The internet is
      good for masking the face of the ignoramus, like the one above. You obviously
      have only been exposed to the lecherous types of relationships that you noted
      above, which is why you are so cynical. I hope that you can find a true love
      like the one shown in the video. They could have been together for years and he
      may have not always had money. Think outside the box if ignorance, please.

    • Latoyanicole21

      U got some nerves. I pray God have mercy on ur soul. And u are racist. God bless u

      • Caribbean in the house

        & afro-american negros are not themselves racists against my caribbean/westindies people in the 1980’s when they first came to america. its an retaliation to them & i have an VENDETTA against them. i will carry out my orders until the day i die, i will do this in the honour of the cu clux clan my IDLES.

    • RedButterfly81

      Please die and go rot in hell you little, heartless POS!!! Put a gun to your empty a$$ head and pull the trigger! That poor woman didn’t do sh*t to you, just trying to live her short life to the fullest, lets see you get cancer a$$hole!

      • Caribbean in the house

        same to you & when you reach to the other side tell your dead civil rights leader when they where alive they should have fought back & not die in vain being a puzzy to the cu clux clan members. born a puzzy die like one.

    • Dad

      I find it strange and dumbfounded how God takes those who’s desire it is to share love and leave heartless people like you around to live.  Some plagues never cure.  Walk the earth and be a curse in every step you make. 

      • Caribbean in the house

        same to you negros when god telling you to love your enemy [the cu clux clan] & forgive them for what they have done to you & if you don’t then its you negro’s going to walk the face of the earth being miserable because you can’t forgive & forget. if your too puzzy to go & beat up the cu clux clan then you might as well submit yourselves onto them.

    • Brinstar

      You sound like a bitter child with a two inch salute to the world. Sad.

  • Sevn

    What a touching video, i love it! May God take the Draft/Rutledge family through their loss, she seemed like a good person to know.

  • Chele

    Beautiful wedding, Beautiful bride!  May GOD bless you and the family. 

  • life01

    Are you serious? People like you make my skin crawl.

  • lovely09

    How beautiful! May GOD bless them, and  may she rest in peace.

  • ADH

    She appears to be a beautiful person (inside and out), may her soul rest in peace. 

    • Carribeankitty

      Let pray for this woman who dont know better as Jesus said Father forgive them for they dont know what they doing . lets get our focus back on MR&MRS please its not about this girl who spoke ill manners

  • Will

    wow. you are so ignorant.

    • Bernettarichardson

      Yes you are

      • Shellster51

        Yes you are!

    • Annvh1

      Seriously Lovely, you are a fool. That young woman died. and all you can think about is wasting money on a wedding. you have no scruples. you must not go to church, have a job, probably on public assistance. will never have a wedding of any kind, cause you are insensitive. i hope you will be able to handle what God has in store for you. will be praying for you and you mouth

      • Honest-Question

        Whats so ignorant about Lovely’s comment? Why spend so much money on a wedding when u are dying? Church going has nothing to do with it either…So can somebody tell me why they went through with the wedding?

        • Jay

          Even if that is how you truly feel you should keep it to urself. That is a very insensitive comment to make after this woman has died. Maybe she knew there was a possibility that she could die and wanted to have a dream wedding like mostly every woman dreams of since childhood. Maybe he loved her so much that cost was not a factor. Also maybe they were optimistic and thought she would beat this disease. So ppl think before you speak/type. Thanks

          • heavenangel

            all of you ppl with negative comments all should be ashame of the responses yall wrote on here if you dont have anything nice to say keep your mouth shut lord have mercy on selfish ppl like all of yall may god have mercy on yall ignorant ppl what would yall say if death knocks on yalls door

        • Lyasmin

          You’re both stupid!!

        • Monielisayah

          Because they damn wanted to thats why. He gave her her wish and besides it was private not open to the public. Let the man be in piece!!!

        • FromUR2UB

          I don’t think either of you meant it the ways it sounds.  When people are terminally ill, sometimes you do those things that lift their spirits, make them comfortable and give them some pleasure.  People often become very depressed when they know they’re dying.  Their loved ones will typically do anything in their power to bring some joy to the dying person and make the time they have left, pleasant.  You want them to leave this earth feeling that they mattered. I don’t wish this upon you, but you’ll understand someday.  

        • Cortrie

          I feel that was something she wanted anhad that chance. So it was not anyones money ,but her husbands. So thats no ones business. Where they had their wedding. Wedont know when our time.U can buy a car today pull off the lot an lose ur life. We as ppl need to sweep around our own front door. The man lost his wife.
