I am at a loss for words as Amy Winehouse had her funeral service today and is will be cremated before being buried.
According to People.com and others, Amy's father Mitch provided a somber and humorous eulogy for Amy. Producer Mark Ronson, who called Amy his musical soulmate, and produced her 2006 album "Back To Black" attended along with Kelly Osbourne. Her boyfriend of the past two years, Reg Traviss was in attendance. Not in attendance was her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil who is serving time in prison and was not granted permission to attend. Amy's father made it known that Blake was not welcome at the funeral.
The Carole King classic "So Far Away" was played at the Jewish funeral and all were asked to join in and sing. Amy is to be cremated after the service.
Music lost a woman who will now live in infamy and it could be some time til we hear a voice as powerful as Amy's. Mitch Winehouse however, lost a daughter. Imagine you having to bury your child. No matter the issues she had. No matter the people who say they all saw this coming. Burying your child or loved one is one of the hardest things I could ever imagine doing.
Mitch Winehouse had this to say at the end of the funeral;
Randy "Macho Man" Savage will have a private funeral per the wrestler's request and wishes before his passing. The funeral will only be family, no one else.
Lanny Poffo, Randy's brother (real name Randy Poffo) is taking care of his brother's wishes and Randy will be cremated by his favorite tree, a place where Randy's beloved dog was cremated and buried around several years ago.
His cause of death is still not known as he had a car accident shortly before his death.
The date was not given as when the private memorial will take place obviously.-Dr.FB
