Amy Winehouse’s parents, Mitch and Janis, visited their daughter’s London home yesterday. A makeshift shrine was setup by fans and mourners, who put flowers, posters, photos, letters and more in tribute to the late singer.
According to the dailymail, Mitch (Amy’s father), said: ‘I know a lot of you, we’ve been together for five, six years, I know you’ve got a job to do. I’m glad you’re all here anyway. And you people in the street, I can’t tell you what this means to us – it really is making this a lot easier for us. Amy was about one thing and that was love, her whole life was devoted to her family and her friends and to you guys as well. We’re devastated and I’m speechless but thanks for coming.’
Amy’s mother Janis, revealed how she saw her daughter the day before she died, describing her as ‘out of it’. She said: ‘Her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me, adding that Amy told her she loved her. ‘They are the words I will always treasure,’ she said. I’m glad I saw her when I did.’
