After hearing about the passing of his daughter, Mitch Winehouse canceled his show at the ‘Blue Note’ and quickly headed to the airport.
Mitch was spotted at JFK airport just hours after he received the call about Amy. He was seen pacing up and down in the first class lounge while talking on his cell phone waiting to catch his flight back to London.
Her father has vowed to stay strong for the sake of the family, and for Amy. Mitch said;
“I’m coming home. I have to be with Amy. I can’t crack up for her sake. My family need me.”
Amy’s mother, Janis, is also devastated at the loss of her daughter, however admitted that it was “only a matter of time” before this happened. Janis said;
“She seemed out of it. But her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me.”
Janis went on to say that she is holding on to Amy’s final words to her after they spent a wonderful day together on Friday. She said that they kissed goodbye and Amy told her mother “I love you, Mum.”
Amy’s mother added;
“They are the words I will always treasure and always remember Amy by.”
A post mortem examination is scheduled to determine the cause of Amy’s passing.
