Amy Winehouse's Ashes Buried By Family

More than a year later, the "Rehab" singer's ashes have been laid to rest in London. Amy Winehouse's Ashes Buried By Family

The family of Amy Winehouse have buried her ashes.  The Jewish ceremony was attended by 70 mourners who wanted to pay last respects to the singer.  Taking place in north London, the somber occasion included erecting a black and pink headstone which was decorated with a pink bird and pink lettering.  It also contained a tribute to Winehouse’s grandmother, Cynthia Levy.

The ceremony highlighted the singer’s “short, but dynamic life” and was held on September 14th, which would have been her 29th birthday.  The family posted on the Amy Winehouse Foundation: "Today marks what would have been the 29th birthday of Amy Winehouse.  Whilst the world continues to mourn the loss of a true superstar, her family -- first and foremost -- remember the daughter, niece and sister that is no longer with them."

So absolutely true.  Amy’s life and tragedies were so larger than life that it’s easy for people to forget that, to her family, she was a regular person - a loved one - which makes it so much sadder on that level. This family has to deal with the fact that so many people have no sympathy for their loss since her behavior ultimately caused her own death but, truly, as addiction is a disease, she was sick and, unfortunately, never recovered.

Winehouse died 14 months ago of alcohol poisoning. She was found in her London home in July 2011.
