We grieve for you, Sir

We grieve for you, Sir
British TV host and model Peaches Geldof(left) and her father Bob Geldof.

You don't name a baby "Peaches" thinking that she's going to die suddenly at the age of 25.

You give a baby that name because you expect her life to be long and joyous.

It's a sweet and juicy name filled with optimism, bursting with life.

What an adorable name for a baby.

What a cute name for a girl.

What a fun name for a teen.

What a cool name for a mom.

What a silly name for a grown woman.

What a wonderful name for an old lady.

I feel badly for Bob Geldof, whose daughter Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof died unexpectedly on Monday after just a quarter century on this planet.

I don't know much about Peaches.

She was a successful model and a TV personality, but I'm not really familiar with her work.

She married twice, and had two young boys, Astala, two, and Phaedra, who was about to celebrate his first birthday. She had two sisters with equally whimsical names - Pixie and Fifi Trixibelle.

Her mom was Paula Yates, who died in 2000 at the age of 41 from a heroin overdose.
