Amy Winehouse's autopsy did not indicate why the singer met her fate on Saturday, but that didn't stop her family and friends from holding a funeral for Winehouse today, in London. Family and friends gathered to pay their respects and to mourn the late singer.

The funeral was held in London and was a private ceremony for Winehouse's closest circle. The ceremony was held at Edgwarebury Cemetery in northern London and will be followed by a cremation and a family gathering at a synagogue.

Winehouse died on Saturday, July 23, for what rumors are saying was due to binge drinking and taking ecstasy, though Monday's autopsy did not confirmed this. The London Metropolitan Police said that the autopsy of Winehouse did not show cause of death. Toxicology tests are needed, and can take up to two to four weeks. Coroner Sharon Duff said an investigation will be launched in Oct. to discover what killed Winehouse.

On Monday, Winehouse's mother and father greeted mourners outside Winehouse's London home. The day proved to be a difficult one for the singer's parents.

Winehouse's father held back tears as he thanked a crowd of fans who were grieving outside of the singer's home.

"I can't tell you what this means to us," Mitch Winehouse said. "We're devastated and I'm speechless, but thanks for coming."

Mourners have been placing flowers, notes and candles across the street from Winehouse's home.

On Saturday, one of Winehouse's closest friends, Kelly Osbourne, was scheduled to attend Kim Kardashian's bridal shower, however, after hearing the news of Winehouse's death, Osbourne boarded a flight for London instead. 

On Saturday morning Osbourne hit Twitter with a shout out to Kardashian.

"Good morning getting reedy for a very exciting wedding shower for the worlds most beautiful bride to be @KimKardashian i cant wait to see u," Osbourne tweeted.

But after hearing about her friend's death, her mood quickly changed.

"I cant even breath right my now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy & will never forget the real you!

"i miss my friend! im going to be off twitter for a while thank you for all your support," the realty television star tweeted.

Today, Osbourne, along with musician and producer Mark Ronson, attended Winehouse's funeral.
