During Amy’s funeral service at Edgwarebury Cemetery in north London, Mitch Winehouse said:
“She was the happiest she has been for years. We all remember that great night at the 100 Club on Oxford Street, her voice was good, her wit and timing were perfect. She told me that she had <<thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed herself>>.
But knowing she wasn’t depressed, knowing she passed away, knowing she passed away happy, it makes us all feel better.”
Mitch Winehouse has also revealed family’s plans to set up an “Amy Winehouse” foundation to help people struggling with addiction.
