Daisy, 14, was the first member of the Tomlinson family to break her silence, taking to Instagram on Sunday, March 17, and sharing a throwback photo with some of her siblings.
“This is the fourth time I’ve tried to write this,” she wrote. “No words will come close to explaining how broken I am, once again. My precious sister. My heart is bleeding. I keep imagining and praying they have the wrong person. Not my sister, my best friend.”
Daisy went on to share one of her final memories of Félicité from “only a few weeks ago,” when they sat together at 3 a.m. “drinking tea, eating French fries and chatting about the future.”
“You told me about all your plans. We were excited,” she recalled. “I pushed you away when you tried cuddling me, I thought I would have so many more chances to do that. I would cuddle you a million times over if you were still here, with me. Protecting me from this cruel world. I can still feel your arms wrapping around my waist and your lips kissing my head. I can hear your voice. I want to hold you, keep you safe. Tell you how much you meant to me and how much I adored you. I’m frightened without you. You’ve left me feeling alone.”
Daisy concluded her tribute by writing that her mom, Johannah Deakin, who died in 2016 after a battle with leukemia, “needed” to be with Félicité again.
“I hope you are happier up there with her,” she wrote. “Make sure you don’t forget about us. keep us in your conversations. i have two angels now, watching over me. i can’t wait to make you both so proud of me.”
Later in the day, Phoebe, also 14, posted a childhood photo of her late sister on her Instagram page.
“Words don’t even begin to describe how shocked and broken hearted we all are,” she captioned the post. “You were my best friend, sister, motivator and person that could make me laugh until I cried. I’m lost without you and the thought of never seeing you again scares me like you wouldn’t believe. I will love you forever and ever and you and mama will have a place in my heart until the day I die. Please tell me your [sic] watching over us and that you will always remember the way we all laughed together. Our memories will stay with me forever. We made so many.”
Echoing her twin sister, Phoebe continued, “Mummy needed you and you desperately needed her. I’m so glad your [sic] together now and she has you to rub her feet in heaven like you used to. I pray that you’re in a better place now. We love you like you wouldn’t believe. Fly high my beautiful sister.”
Louis’ rep confirmed to Us Weekly that Félicité died on Wednesday, March 13. Paramedics were unable to revive her after she reportedly suffered a heart attack at her studio apartment in London.
The former One Direction singer, 27, has yet to publicly speak out about Félicité’s death. He had released a new song titled “Two of Us” just days earlier that paid tribute to their late mother.
