Amy Winehouse, who was found dead in her London home on Saturday, was laid to rest on Tuesday in London. The private funeral was only attended by family and close friends, including Mark Ronson and Kelly Osbourne.
Sky News reports that Winehouse’s ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was not allowed out of prison for the event; he is currently serving 32 months for violent crimes.
A witness told the British news service that Winehouse’s dad, Mitch, “told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognized the stories and laughed along. He stressed so many times she was happier now than she had ever been and he spoke about her boyfriend and paid tribute to a lot of people in her life.”
Winehouse’s most recent boyfriend, Reg Traviss, spoke to the UK’s Sun about his devastating loss, saying that Winehouse had been exercising and in good spirits before she passed.
“I can’t describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love,” he said. “I have lost my darling who I loved very much.”
Autopsy results proved inconclusive on Monday, meaning it will take 2-4 weeks for toxicology tests to provide a cause of death.
