Friends and family of Amy Winehouse gathered in London Tuesday for a private funeral service that included touching tributes to the singer as well as humorous references.
Among those attending the service at a North London cemetery were media personality Kelly Osbourne -- who did her hair up in a beehive to pay tribute to Winehouse's signature look -- and Winehouse's recent boyfriend, Reg Traviss. Also attending was record producer Mark Ronson, who helped the soul diva launch her Grammy-winning album "Back to Black."
The traditional Jewish service included reminiscences from Winehouse's father Mitch, and it ended with a rendition of Carole King's "So Far Away," one of
the singer's favorite songs. After the service, the mourners moved on to a crematorium where the singer was to be cremated.
"Mitch was funny, he told some great stories from childhood about how headstrong she was, and clearly the family and friends recognized the stories and laughed along," said family spokesman Chris Goodman. "He stressed so many times she was happier now than she had ever been and he spoke about her boyfriend and paid tribute to a lot of people in her life."
Winehouse was found dead in her London home on Saturday at the age of 27. An autopsy was completed Monday on the singer's body, but the procedure did not establish a formal cause of death. Results of additional toxicology tests are expected in two to four weeks. The beehive-haired singer had publicly battled drug and alcohol addiction for years.
