This completely breaks our heart.
As we reported this weekend, Annie Lennox's daughter, Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann, and her boyfriend Ian Jones were kayaking on the Hudson River in upstate New York when their kayak flipped.
Though Tali was saved, Jones went missing.
On Monday, a body was found in an alcove near the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club, and on Tuesday, it was officially identified as the photographer.
Though there was reportedly no trauma or injury to the body, authorities say alcohol may have played a part.
"It's been hard. It's kind of surreal. I feel a real peace about me. I am not falling apart."
However, Tali has not been taking the news well at all.
The model's mother says that the musician's daughter is:
"a wreck, she's a mess. She keeps saying she wishes Ian knew she was okay. He died for her. He tried to save her. She wants him to know she is okay."
My heart is shattered. My best friend, my soul mate, my partner in crime & creativity, the LOVE & LIGHT of my life is no longer with me. All the love that has been sent to me is giving me the strength to get through this. I know that he is so so happy that I was safely rescued. Let us honor & celebrate this beautiful soul & keep following the light.A photo posted by @talilennox on Aug 10, 2015 at 4:16pm PDT
Sherron is planning a memorial service for her son this Saturday at their church in Bensalem, Pennsylvania and will have him cremated.
At least, she remembers her son only with positive memories.
"He made such a difference in so many people's lives… Everybody loved them and liked to have them around. They were such a positive couple."
