She has passed away (I refuse to say the 'd' word) sometime between 12-1 AM on 9/29/13. She passed of old age (she was over 17 years old), pretty much naturally (if you count kidney failure and other internal issues as natural). I am very miserable and heartbroken at the moment, and so is the rest of my family, but I hope in time I will move on and that this won't make my depression worse. If she stayed for another year we would have owned her for almost a decade. May she (Diamond) rest in peace, we will miss her very much. I believe that her spirit will pass on to another body, nothing really ever dies except physical bodies. I am sure of it. You can see her pictures in my gallery.
