Amy Winehouse Funeral Concludes; Star Will Be Cremated

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

With friends and mourners like friend Kelly Osbourne and Back to Black producer Mark Ronson in attendance, Amy Winehouse‘s funeral was held today in North London.

The memorial service was held partly in Hebrew in accordance with Amy’s Jewish faith, and the star will be cremated at Golders Green crematorium, like her grandmother before her.

Amy’s father, taxi driver Mitch Winehouse, said, “Goodnight my angel. Sleep tight. Mommy and Daddy love you ever so much,” before leading the mourners in song: Carole King’s “So Far Away”, which was one of Amy’s favorites.

And the singer’s boyfriend, Reg Traviss, broke his silence and told the media:

“The last three days have been hell. We have suffered a terrible untimely loss and want peace now. I can’t describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love. I have lost my darling who I loved very much.”
