Amy Winehouse’s funeral was held at Edgwarebury Cemetery in London earlier today. It was attended by around 150 guests, which included close friends such as Kelly Osbourne and Mark Ronson, who often collaborated with the singer and tweeted she was his “musical soulmate & like a sister to me.” Amy’s father Mitch gave a moving eulogy, finishing with, “Goodnight my angel. Sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much.” Following the one-hour memorial service, which had parts in Hebrew to honour Amy’s Jewish background, Amy was cremated. After the funeral, Mitch released a statement that said: “Knowing she wasn’t depressed, knowing she passed away, knowing she passed away happy — it makes us all feel better. She was the happiest she has been for years.”
