Sisters forever. Fifi Trixibelle Geldof paid tribute to younger sister Peaches, who died suddenly on Monday, April 7, at the age of 25 in Kent, England.

"My beautiful baby sister… Gone but never forgotten," 31-year-old Fifi shared in an Instagram post alongside an old picture of the two girls making funny faces. "I love you, Peaches x."

Fifi's touching tribute was the latest expression of grief amid a deluge of thoughts from family and friends mourning the loss of the British TV and fashion personality. Peaches and Fifi's famous father Bob Geldof confirmed his daughter's death on Monday and said his family was "beyond pain."

The Band Aid founder added, "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?"

The complete statement signed by Bob, girlfriend Jeanne, and his daughters Fifi, Pixie and Tiger, concluded, "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."

Peaches' husband Tom Cohen released a separate statement Monday and said, "My beloved wife Peaches was adored by myself and her two sons Astala and Phaedra. I shall bring them up with their mother in their hearts everyday. We shall love her forever."

Both Astala, 23 months, and Phaedra, nearly 12 months, will celebrate their birthdays later this month.

According to police, local authorities have found no evidence of the use of hard drugs, or any visible signs of injury. Kent Police told Us Weekly in a statement that Peaches' death was being "treated as an unexplained sudden death."
