One of Berkley’s first digital eulogies can be found on her Instagram page, where she posted a picture of Diamond circa 1990s and provided the following message: “I’m grateful to have gotten to create with Dustin when we were at the beginning of our dreams coming true. I will hold onto those sweet memories and the laughs we shared. He was a truly gifted talent. Rest In Peace.”
Berkley also retweeted a similar message by Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played Zack Morris on Saved by the Bell. The post echoed Berkley’s sentiment, calling Diamond “a true comedic genius” and offering his friends and family “sincere condolences.” Gosselaar’s message ended with the statement, “A pie in your face, my comrade.” While Diamond was never pied on set (as far as we can recall), it wouldn’t be out of character for him.
Berkley isn’t alone in mourning Diamond’s death. Other Saved by the Bell stars, including Mario Lopez, have posted messages of condolence.
