Still, no memoriam can come close to the heartbreaking statement released by her father in the wake of his daughter’s death.
“Peaches has died. We are beyond pain,” he said (via Daily Mail). “She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable?”
“We loved her and will cherish her forever,” he continued. “How sad that sentence is. [Husband Thomas Cohen] and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken.”
R.I.P., Peaches Geldof.
