Amy's father says 'goodnight angel'

Amy Winehouse's father Mitch said "goodnight" to his daughter - before her funeral ended with family and friends singing her favourite song.

Hundreds of people paid their last respects to the troubled singer at the Edgwarebury Cemetery in north London ahead of a private service.

Her father's eulogy ended with the words "Goodnight, my angel, sleep tight. Mummy and Daddy love you ever so much."

The service, which included prayers in English and Hebrew as well as Mr Winehouse's eulogy, ended with a rendition of the Carole King song So Far Away. A spokesman for the family said: "Mitch was funny, he told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognised 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."

Among the guests at the service were stylist Alex Foden, who has been credited with creating Amy's trademark beehive hairdo, producer Mark Ronson and singer Kelly Osbourne.

After the service, Amy's body was taken to Golders Green Crematorium. The family will now hold a two-day Shiva - a traditional period of mourning in the Jewish faith.

Alfie Ezekiel, a friend of her father, said: "Mitch gave a very good eulogy and he managed to get through it very well, considering.

"He said everything. I don't want to go into detail but his last words were 'Goodnight, my sweetheart'."

He said the service - during which Mr Winehouse was the only family member to speak - was "joyful" and "celebrated" the 27-year-old singer's life. Guests left clutching pictures of the star.
