How Diamond passed
“As soon as Diamond hung up the phone, she said to me: ‘I can’t breathe’,” Richardson (Silk) said in her address at the celebration of her sister’s life on Tuesday. “It was suddenly, out of nowhere, and [with] no warning. I got her to the kitchen table, opened up the back door, so that she could get some air. And each breath was less, and less, and less.”
She went on to explain that her and her husband performed CPR until emergency medical services arrived, who “did everything they could,” she said. Richardson’s (Silk) narrative of her sister’s final moments, despite her denials, appears consistent with a death caused by respiratory disease.
