Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch visited the memorial site outside his daughters Camden home on Monday and thanked the fans.

"You people in the street I can't tell you what this mean to us," Mitch told those who were gathered to pay tributes to Amy. "It really is making this a lot easier for us. You know, 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 am speechless."

Mitch thanked the crowd for coming to pay their tributes to his daughter and said "I hope to see you again soon."

A security guard found the singer dead at home on Saturday afternoon. Amy Winehouse's cause of death is not yet known, but a post-mortem examination is expected later. It will shed light on what truly caused the British singer's death.

There have been reports that the five-time Grammy Award winner died after a binge on alcohol and drugs. Others have said no drugs or paraphernalia were found in Amy Winehouse's home.

Police are still investigating the cause of the singer's death, and until they have something conclusive, her death is still being classified as "unexplained."

Amy Winehouse was 27 years old and had a promising future. She made it big with her 2006 album Back to Black. The songs on the album is said to describe a previous split with her ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil.

But she was never able to kick her drug and alcoholic demons, which she has battled for years. She died like a rock star and joined several others like Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrisson, Kurt Cobain, and Janis Joplin in the "Forever 27" club.

Amy Winehouse came close to death in 2009 when she and her ex-husband went on a three-day drug binge.

Blake Fielder-Civil is currently serving a 32-month long sentence in prison for burglary and possession of an imitation firearm.

Blake Fielder-Civil told The Sun, through NME, that he knelt over Amy who went into a seizure and stopped breathing for a while at a party at her home in Camden.

Details of the Near-death Experience

"She started having a fit on the bed. She slid down on to the floor before I could stop her. She started quivering again and it suddenly grew into what seemed like a full-blown epileptic fit," Blake recalled, according to NME. "I was panicking. I didn't know know how to help her. I was out of it on drugs as well - and was sobbing and crying out, 'Amy!'"

"I knelt over her as she kept on fitting. But then suddenly she just passed out and stopped breathing. It was the most frightening thing I had ever seen. I felt sure I was watching her die right in front of me. I didn't know what to do or how to save her. I held her to me - and I thought she was dying in my arms. But somehow I managed to open her mouth and breathe air down her throat," Blake continued.

"At first nothing happened. So I did it again. I was feeling for her pulse because I thought her heart might have stopped.

"Then she spluttered - and I saw her chest rise. I was still sobbing and panicking but I just felt this huge relief that she was alive."

NME reported that Blake Fielder-Civil continued to describe how Amy kept slipping in and out of consciousness and was unable to recognize him and called out for more drugs. That was before a friend called a taxi to take her to hospital, where she was placed on a drip, according to the NME report.

May Commit Suicide

Georgette Fielder-Civil told the UK's Daily Star that her son must be put on suicide watch in prison.

"Blake will kill himself. He won't make it without her," she said. "He will be devastated, totally and utterly devastated. He'll go straight back to self- harming. I'll have to ring the prison and he will be put on watch. He was always ringing her and she was always ringing him. Blake always wanted her back. She couldn't walk away from him and he couldn't walk away from her. Her and Blake were both lost and we handled it badly."

Blake and Amy Winehouse divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage.
