Mitch Winehouse, the father of Amy Winehouse, has been grieving since his daughter's death last weekend. He has been grieving in different ways as any person would be in this situation. He also understands that Amy's fans have been grieving. Mitch decided to give away some of Amy's belongings to her fans.
Mitch came up to fans still mourning the singer by her Camden place where she used to live and died, and gave out clothes, jewelery and more. The singer was buried on Tuesday.
Mitch said this to fans after giving away her things; "There are Amy's T-shirts. This is what she would have wanted — for her fans to have her clothes. God bless Amy Winehouse.”
There are reports from family members and doctors that Amy may have died by trying to quit cold turkey when it came to alcohol, as we reported earlier.
We will not know her cause of death for another 2 to 3 weeks.-Dr.FB

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.
