Amy Winehouse was found dead in her home yesterday, July 23, 2011. Although we know it would happen anytime soon, her death still leaves you with a heavy heart. Such a great talent wasted on drugs, alcohol and other addiction. Her self-destructive behavior was well documented and seeing the photos and videos were very saddening. It’s even a surprise to some that she made it this far. The question When will Amy Winehouse die? was already answered.
Winehouse is only 27 joining the list of tragic “27 Club” of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain who all died at the age of 27.
I was touched by a comment in one of the news that says, “As a mother, I cannot mourn the loss of Amy’s “talent” as much as the loss of a vibrant young person. A sad loss.” The world lost another artist but her family lost a loved one.
