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.

Sad. But what's even worst is some of the negative things said even after death. Guess there are no boundries with some critics who want to be seen and heard trying to get their few moments of fame.

Rolm - you are both disgusting and ignorant - your COMMENT should not even have been printed - TMZ must be stupid and ignorant also to print your garbage.

RIP Amy - your inner pain and torment is over

There is still a lot of stigma and ridicule for people who try to recover from addiction. Everyone chuckled along to "Rehab" and that coolness-at-any-cost cost Amy her life. The other significant factor is that there are always enablers and accomplices. Courtney was doing heroin with Kurt after he got out of rehab. Mike Starr had "friends" and band members who helped him get high. Amy had hangers-on who laughed along - Rehab: it's for puritans and squares. There are "friends" and spokespeople, the parasites, who have blood on their hands as well.

I never really listened to Amy's music. I watched as she spiraled down, but everybody has loved ones that grieve. Bless her family and Amy, she is in a better place and no longer tormented. R.I.P

For those of you out there posting "nasty & hateful" comments and saying it was bad parenting...Look to your own parents as they must not have taught you compassion, humility or love since it seems to show in your comments..Karma is a bitch so watch out, the things you say and do will eventually come back and bite you in the ass.

My heart goes after her parents. It must be horrible to know that there was nothing you could do to prevent such a sad end to a life that could have been wonderful. Indeed Amy sleep tight may your soul RIP.

If it comes back she died from something other than drugs will people shut up and show some respect for the dead?
