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.

Did they let her die? Is she more useful to the money/business people dead than alive? Will they make more money now?

I tell my seven year old daughter every night to sleep tight, breaks my heart to know the world is a place that saying it for the last time is an option. Rest in peace Amy.

I would have loved to watch her sing without the clown makeup and the tats and that horrible hairdo. Get a great stylist to dress her elegantly and classically, with her hair down and shiny. And let her rip her songs into the night as beautiful as she would have been, the real Amy, not having to be disguised so she could hide behind it. Too bad. I could see what was underneath and was hoping she would live long enough to grow out of the clown disguise. Her voice was so much better than that.

I am grateful my son turned me onto Amy's music. Aside from the obvious rants-I do believe she was a good person w/a beautiful spirit that came through her music. Prayers and love out to her family today we are all thinking about you. Spending today listening to her music. Rest in Peace Beautiful Angel.

I heard the eulogy was more like a stand-up comedy performance, guess Amy didn't get the last laugh.

Amy Winehouse to me was nothing but a fodder to the tabs. From time to time I read her crazy life and I somehow was touched by her loneliness. A woman in her prime dies of loneliness despite the adulation of her colleagues and fans.

I do not know why I immediately begun to understand her. She has the recognition a lot of others can only dream about. She can do most anything because she is not completely devoid of money. I just find it disheartening for her to leave us so soon, yes, so soon because she cannot find her way!

I want to understand her more but now she is gone, forever. I guess I envy her how much she meant to her parents as I, myself, could never ever tell if my parents even had half of the love they had for her.

Sleep tight, Amy, at least you were loved, being loved and will always be loved by the people who really mattered most in your life no matter how lost you were in this life. You have unconditioned love without any pressure. Goodbye, little princess! You will always be their little princess all their lives.

I want to applaud your parents for being so wise and strong and did not regret to unleash you in this wild and crazy world, though, their hearts might have been broken more than others will ever come to know.

I stand with the family in their grief at the loss of their child. No matter what she was loved while here on Earth. May god hold her close to Him now in Eternity and comfort her parents.

The picture alone made me cry. My worst nightmare, to lose my daughter. It seems to me the most artistic souls are the most tortured souls.

trying to e-mail Mitch Winehouse - his email address on the site is not going through - does he have another e-mail. I want to send my heartfelt sympathy and also to talk to him about his rehab proposals - this is not for financial or professional gain. I am a jewish Mother who lost her daughter at xmas and my son is in early rehab treatment at last - Miriam
