Too Young To Die.... - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Too Young To Die....

A Florida starline- backer, Ball was diagnosed with cerebral arteriovenous malformation - a condition that can cause blood vessels to rupture in the brain.

Ball suffered from a brain aneurysm since September 2018 and was placed in a medically induced coma.

Neiron died on 10 September recently
a very tragic death, too young to die
27 years....


On behalf of Poem Hunter Team and poets,
to the Ball family:
our deepest condolences
and may Neiron rest in peace....

    It is not because he is a well known player, BUT because he died so young 27 years only and a loving father of his 2 kids and a meaningful mate to his wife. God gives, God takes, we pray for Neiron´s going home to His Father in
    Heaven, Amen.

    We as poets of Poem Hunter are saddened too having read this shocking news about his death,
    deep shocked because he was too young too die, but the Lord helps him from his endless suffering and He will take care for his lovely young kids and his pretty épousse (wife) . Amen.
