Amy Winehouse's state of condition was so bad back then that her father has prepared an eulogy for her. Mitch Winehouse, was so sure his daughter's drug-taking lifestyle would finally take its toll that he prepared a speech for her funeral.

Amy passed out in August after allegedly shot down cocktail and drugs that led to overdose.

Mitch told the Daily Star Sunday, "I wrote a eulogy for Amy myself last month. When she had her seizure and was taken to hospital, I really thought that could be it. The doctors told us even a whiff of another drug could kill her."

Mitch also could not hide the desire to point his finger at Amy's husband, Blake Civil-Fielder. He said, "When I found out Blake had given her more drugs, I couldn't believe it. It was as bad as someone holding a gun to my daughter's head. Blake is a bad influence on her and I no longer toe the line and pretend he isn't. Amy is responsible for her own actions but, until he came along, she was staunchly against hard drugs."

"For Amy and Blake to beat their drug problems they have to go into rehab separately and he won't let her do that. I don't care about his health at all, other than because my Amy's happiness relies on it. In the end, she's my daughter. She's very strong and I love her. I trust she will be all right."

Amy has canceled a number of appearances due to this problem, but she will be back to Stateside in November as part of mtvU Woodie Awards performance. The singer who is also a nominee will be joined by The Academy Is... and Spank Rock on November 8 at NYC's Roseland Ballroom.

How appalling - it us still July - dont't you have any proof readers. I BELIEVE YOU OWE AN APOLOGY PRIMARILY TO HER FAMILY FOR YOUR SLAP DASH WAYS. I am horrified at your carelessness. Bless Amy released from her troubled world. She peaked early as did many singers.
