This is so heartbreaking.
Singer-songwriter Diana King has announced the passing of her daughter, Shalamar Diana Wright. According to King, Wright passed away on August 5th at the age of 33.
King would take to her Twitter account to post more details about her daughter and explain how she was on life support before passing away.
“Death keeps it real & puts thing perspective. I never imagined having to make the decision to either keep my daughter on permanent life support or allow her to pass naturally as the free spirit she was in peace & with dignity. I’m grateful the answer was clear.”
