The 45-minute ceremony was led by a Rabbi and included prayers in English and Hebrew.

During Mitch Winehouse's eulogy, he said, "Goodnight my angel ... Sleep tight. Mommy and Daddy love you ever so much."

The ceremony ended with a rendition of the Carole King song, "So Far Away" ... while Mitch encouraged mourners to sing along.

No matter what you thought of her (Or Anybody) Thats just a reminder that she was somebodys child.For her to burst on the scene over here in the U.S. so quickly just proved she is an official ICON and you gotta give props to that.

So far Away
Doesn't anybody stay in one place anymore?
It would be so fine to see your face at my door
Doesn't help to know that you're just time away
Long ago I reached for you, and there you stood
Holding you again could only do me good
How I wish I could, but you're so far away

Bleh!    

Every parent's worst nightmare: losing a child. Sympathy to Amy's parents! She was blessed to have two loving parents. To have that and so much more, only to self destruct is very difficult to understand.

God rest your soul, Amy. May you now be free from your turmoil and demons and be at peace. No matter what your thoughts are about this woman, she had an amzing talent and gifted voice. At the end of the day she is someone's daughter, friend, sister, and people need to have respect for the family. May her family find healing and remember the joy of her life she brought to them.
RIP, Amy
