Peaches Geldofs funeral took place Easter Monday at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence Church in Kent, England—the same place where her late mother Paula Yates was laid to rest after she died of a heroin overdose in 2000.

Kate Moss, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and English radio/TV presenter Nick Grimshaw were among those who came to pay their respects to the late 25-year-old model, TV presenter and writer. Sir Bob Geldof was scheduled to deliver a eulogy about his beloved daughter, per the BBC.

Peaches is survived by husband Thomas Cohen, son Astala, 11 months, and Phaedra, who turns 2 on Thursday. Her widower is reportedly "still too devastated" to return to the family home where his wife was found dead Apr. 7. (An initial autopsy of the late British socialite was inconclusive, but a toxicology report to determine her cause of death is expected within the next one or two weeks. Police are treating her death as "non-suspicious but sudden and unexplained.")

The doting mum will be missed terribly not only by her sons and their dad, but by her own musician father Bob, who issued a statement the day of her passing, saying, "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."

Our thoughts and prayers are with Peaches' family, friends and loved ones.
