VIDEO: NFL Star's Wife Dies After Just 41 Days Of Marriage, His Response Will Break Your Heart

In a moving speech for BET’s Super Bowl Gospel Celebration show earlier this months, former NFL player Tommie Harris shared about his wife Ashley’s death from a brain aneurysm after only 41 days of marriage. Hear his heartbreaking response to his loss in the video at the end of this article.

“I had something like $25 million in the bank when I lost Ashley, and not one dollar had been able to help her,” Harris wrote in The Players’ Tribune. “If it could have, I would have given every last cent to save my wife.”

“Death is a thing that happens in life, it’s not a thing that happens to life, so my job is to go and tell everyone that is living to make life count,” Harris proclaimed to the crowd. “I don’t care what it is. As you breathe today, when was the last time you took a big deep breath? As I pulled my wife’s monitor off and she took her last one… Right now, take a deep one. Let it out. As long as you have that in your body, you’ve got the Brady effect. At any moment, I’ve got time on the clock, I can come back at any moment! I know things happen in my life, but I can make a change at any moment.”

Harris closed with a powerful word on how God comforted him through Scripture. Hear his testimony in the video below:
