Family and friends of Amy Winehouse said their final farewells to the late star yesterday as they buried her ashes during an intimate ceremony in North London.
According to The Sun, approximately 70 mourners attended the ceremony in Edgware to pay their respects to the 'Valerie' star, and watched Winehouse's father, Mitch, honour his daughter's ''short but dynamic'' life.
The 27-year-old's singer's ashes were buried in a black headstone with pink inscription, which was also inscribed with a songbird and carried a tribute to her grandmother, Cynthia Levy.
Amy passed away on July 23 last year, after she was discovered lifeless at her north London home. Coroners later confirmed that Winehouse, who has battled drink and drug addiction for several years, had died of alcohol poisoning.
Last Friday would have been the singer's 29th birthday, and her family spoke to fans on the Amy Winehouse Foundation website, saying: ''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.''
