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.

Surprised Harvey wasn't invited and to read the TMZ poll results:

"It was 100 percent in favor of no one giving a crap."

...As a grieving family, those are the kinds of things that lift ye and make ye want to go on...

He'll finally get some rest now too, sad as it may be. He's aged immensely in the past 5 years.

RIP Amy. Your music is awesome and thank you. I hope her parents find some solace in knowing how many fans loved their daughter.

I'd rather have a-farm-filled-with-Pit-Bulls come after me.

Than any-three-or-four-posters from TMZ.

TMZ-posters have given new meaning:

To the word "hate."

Heartfelt sympathy to family and friends. I loved her music. So unique. So sad it ended so soon for her. Tragic. Such a loss for the music industry and her family. Her Father always seems so stoic and calm. May her parents find comfort in Amy's memories. God hold and comfort them in their time of need...

@nof: I think you're getting a little commented out - can't see the good posts for the hate ones. WTF did I say to prompt your response? Mr. Meaningful Beauty??? I said her Dad aged a lot recently, and you slam me for it. Get an effing grip.

Parents say it was just a matter of time before she died. They could have done much more to get her help. They washed their hands of the situation and now they have blood on them.
