Former President Donald Trump delivered a heartfelt eulogy at the funeral celebrating the life of Ineitha Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway, one of his most ardent supporters since the early days of his candidacy.

Hardaway, who was known as “Diamond” from the conservative social media duo “Diamond & Silk,” passed away suddenly and unexpectedly earlier this month at just 51 years old.

At the time of her passing, Trump mourned her loss in a post on his social media platform, Truth Social.

“Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans. Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina. Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing. There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time! Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out. Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!” he wrote.

Trump continued his praise of Hardaway during his eulogy at her funeral on Saturday.

“This is a fantastic woman that we lost,” he began. “We haven’t really lost her because she’s looking down. And she loved her sister and she loved her family. I talked to her about it and she was a great passionate woman with a great, big, beautiful brain.”

Trump also discussed the support he received from Diamond & Silk during his presidential campaign, and how they stood by him in the earliest days and refused to jump ship.

“I turned over the podium, and Diamond loudly and proudly declared, ‘I want everybody to know that we stand behind Donald J. Trump.’ This was so early. It was an incredible thing,” he said.

“On June 16 of 2015, Diamond & Silk were at home watching a certain network which I won’t name. I announced my campaign for president and they were lifelong Democrats, but they ultimately, very quickly, later said, ‘He’s right.’ Because we were talking common sense. We were talking about health. We were talking about walls,” the former president added.

Trump concluded the eulogy by noting that people will miss Hardaway “greatly.”

“We will miss her greatly, we will remember her always, and together we will carry on a mission that has been an amazing mission,” he said.
