Thomas Cohen reageerde gisteravond al op het overlijden van zijn vrouw: 'My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra and I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever. Thomas Astala and Phaedra Geldof-Cohen.'
Bob Geldof liet in een verklaring weten: 'Peaches has died. We are beyond pain.'
'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. How sad that sentence is.'
'Tom and her sons Astala and Phaedra will always belong in our family, fractured so often, but never broken.'
LILY, FEARNE & LORDE
