There has been some speculation surrounding the untimely death of Amy Winehouse, but one thing is for sure, her family is distraught by their loss. As well they should be, she had an immense amount of talent and was surely loved by those close to her.
Following her death, her family has issued a statement. They said, “Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives. We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time.”
Amy’s mother, Janice saw her a day before her passing, when Amy told her, “I love you, mum”, before leaving. Janis said, “They are the words I will always treasure. I’m glad I saw her when I did.”
Previously, her mother said that her death would be “only a matter of time”, because she “seemed out of it” during their visit. Janis commented, “But her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me.”
Her father, Mitch, said, “I’m getting on the next plane back. I’m coming home. I have to be with Amy. I can’t crack up for her sake. My family needs me. I’m devastated; it’s such a shock.”
Hopefully she can finally rest in peace. RIP Amy Winehouse, your music will live on forever.
