Peaches Geldof on Being A Wild Child

Peaches Geldof on Family

Bob Geldof on Peaches Geldof
“She was the wildest, funniest, cleverist, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? 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 boken.”
