Amy Winehouse's family and friends gathered for a private funeral at a North London synagogue yesterday to pay tribute to the R&B singer who was found dead in her apartment on Saturday. According to People, Winehouse's father Mitch, who is a jazz musician, gave a "funny" eulogy, "telling stories about her childhood, people were laughing like a celebration." Winehouse's friend Kelly Osbourne was spotted in attendance, as was producer of Back to Black Mark Ronson. Carole King's "So Far Away" played at the close of the ceremony, and "Mitch encouraged everyone to sing to it and they did." Winehouse's family then traveled to another location to have her body cremated, per family custom.

Blake Fielder-Civil, whose brief, turbulent marriage to Winehouse became a public manifestation of the singer's struggles with drugs and alcohol, reportedly "collapsed" when he heard of his ex-wife's death. Fielder-Civil, who is in prison for burglary and firearm possession, reportedly told his current girlfriend, "I will never ever again feel the love I felt for her. Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love. I can't believe she's dead."

Currently, rumors abound that Winehouse's breakup with her boyfriend, director Reg Traviss, is what spurred a "final booze-and-coke binge" that took her life. A source informed the Mirror of London that, "Reg found out Amy and Blake had been chatting and got upset. The pair had a fight and Reg walked out."

Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion writer Robin Givhan notes on The Daily Beast, "There was always something disconcerting about the fashion industry’s fascination with singer Amy Winehouse," as the industry, through Winehouse's visible struggle with substance abuse, "played off the romantic patina our culture still associates with drug-addled creative types." Indeed, "you can’t help wondering whether fashion also has made it more difficult for the public to distinguish between broken-down dolls and broken-down people."
