Amy Winehouse's family said their final farewell yesterday (16.09.12) as they buried her ashes. The 'Back to Black' singer passed away in July 2011 at age 27 from alcohol poisoning and her ashes were set to rest in a Jewish ceremony in Edgware, North London. The memorial was attended by around 70 mourners - including Amy's father Mitch - and her ashes were committed to the ground accompanied by a black and pink headstone. According to The Sun
newspaper, the headstone features "pink writing and a picture of a songbird" in memory of the musician. Mitch paid tribute to his daughter's "short but dynamic" life.
Last Friday (14.09.12) would have been
the singer's 29th birthday and her family spoke to fans on the Amy Winehouse Foundation website, saying: "Today marks what would have been the 29th birthday of Amy Winehouse. Whilst the world continues to mourn the loss of a true superstar, her family - first and foremost - remember the daughter, niece and sister that is no longer with them."
