And trust us when we say, for all of us at ‘GMA,’ there was no greater privilege than knowing Daisha Riley.”“She was beloved by all of us here. Her smile lit up a room,” Strahan said. “We can’t express how much we are going to miss her.”On Twitter, “Good Morning America” host Robin Roberts also remembered Riley for being “talented, creative, kind, a beautiful soul in every way,” writing, “Our @GMA family loved her and will be forever grateful to have experienced Daisha’s grace & grit.”A cause of death was not publicly revealed.Watch the tribute here.Read original story ‘Good Morning America’ Producer Daisha Riley Dies at 35 At TheWrap
