That's No Way to Say Goodbye sung at Peaches Geldof funeral

Post by honeyrose » Thu Apr 24, 2014 8:41 pm

Peaches Geldof, the 25 year daughter of Bob Geldof was found dead at home recently. The cause of her death is still unknown and it is particularly tragic as she had two small baby boys, both under two years old. Her funeral took place earlier this week and it has been revealed that her distraught husband Thomas Cohen (no relation as far as I know), a musician himself, sang "That's No Way to Say Goodbye" at the service.

That's such a poignant application of Leonard's song.
Wonderful choice, and especially being sung by Peaches' own husband.
