Soul singer Amy Winehouse's mortal remains were laid to rest at a private funeral service yesterday. The singer's grieving dad Mitch gave a moving eulogy at the funeral, leaving everyone gathered to bid goodbye to the singer chocked with tears.
Mitch said that her daughter had made fantastic recovery and had given up drugs three years ago. “She was trying hard to deal with her drinking and had just completed three weeks of abstinence. She said, 'Dad, I've had enough of drinking. I can't stand the look on your and the family's faces any more'," The Sun quoted him as saying. “She was the happiest she has been for years," he added.
And chocked in grieve, the 60-year-old cabbie bid farewell to his beloved daughter saying, “Goodnight my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much."
Many celebrities like Kelly Osbourne, record producer Mark Ronson and rocker Bryan Adams attended the funeral service. “It was a very moving send-off, very fitting. They (mom and dad of Amy) were kissing their girl goodbye. They were both very brave. They were in floods of tears. Everyone was," a family friend said.
The 27-year-old multiple Grammy Award winner died of suspected drug overdose on Saturday (July 23). However, the exact cause of her death is yet to be known, as the autopsy failed to give any result. Toxicology tests will be done, which will take about four weeks to get the result.
