Following the tragic death of Peaches Geldof, the 25-year-old model and daughter of musician Bob Geldof, her friend, Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, has posted a written tribute to her on his Tumblr. It contains several memories of the time they spent together.

I’m on a plane flying to L.A from New York right now.
I remember making this same journey 4 years ago. At a point in my life where I didn’t really know many people in L.A, and if I did.. they were nothing more than acquaintances.
At this moment in time, I knew that Peaches had moved from NYC to LA. As soon as I landed I called her.
We met up for what would become tradition in her stint in Los Angeles & my back and forth from New York, we ate burgers. I’m serious, this was really the first thing we’d meet up and do every time, no questions asked.
Although there was one time were before we ate, she’d convinced me to buy a pack of porno playing cards to do magic tricks for her, i obliged, I was heavily into magic at the time, what more can I say?
It’s funny that this would be the memory ringing in my head right now. There are plenty of memories growing up & coming of age in London with her, my dear friends Fifi, Fred and the rest of the gang. Even when I first moved to New York 7 years ago, and she’d also just moved to NYC with her good friend Lily, who in turn became a very close friend of mine, I didn’t really live anywhere at the time & I would spend every day in their apartment. But for some reason right now the memory of LA sticks out.
Obviously because i’m on my way there now, I guess, but i’ve really struggled to put into words how I’ve been feeling, i’m sure we all have. Nothing I could write, say, or any pictures I feel can really, truly convey the loss we are feeling right now…
This is someone who affected so many of us, my friends, in our lives. It’s a struggle to picture a moment in time without her. Just last month while playing shows in London I remember the delight of seeing her and Fifi together, just like old times. We quipped about it, a little older, but still babies in the grand scheme of things.
But really, she had grown so much, we all watched her grow, and create a beautiful family with Thomas. My heart god out to him, and the rest of her family. This is just so unfair… it’s made me physically sick..
I don’t have much more to say, i’m still in shock over this. I just wanted to try and honour her in some way…
We love you Peaches.

Rest In Peace.
