Hey,
i was wondering if they allow "Non Jews" to visit the jewish graveyard (i forgot the name of it) where Amy's Ashes rest.
Because one day i'd love to visit her graveside when i'm in London.
I also wanted to go and see her house, but i heard
it's gonna be the headquarter of the Foundation.
Amy flies in paradise

I'm not sure that Amy's ashes have actually been interred or if they will be, i do recall reading that they may be mixed with her grandmothers & some scattered in saint lucia.

My first thought is that they would take the ashes home? Like you see in movies when families have an urn on the top of the fireplace or a shelf?
You have heard about tom raiders and other sick people, I'd be scared of them.

I'm going to London next month actually to pay my respects and see where she lived, and possibly visit the graveyard.

If there is not a grave maybe theres a monumental or something like that? Maybe there is a stone although she wasn't buried there?
I'm going there too check anyway.
It seemes weird to me if non-jews were not allowed on the cemetary.
I mean, non-christians can visit a christian cemetary, no? I'm not 100% though.

I know of no rule that says you have to be Jewish to visit a Jewish cemetary.

I was wondering where her ashes were buried too, but not clear that they have been.

They had some kind of service at Edgewarebury cemetery, so I was wondering if that would be the place. But I don't know. I looked it up on Google Maps.

If there will be no gravesite, I find that disappointing. Would be nice to have a place to go to pay respects and reflect.

There must be plans for a marker or gravestone somewhere; I've known people who were cremated, and a portion of the ashes were either scattered, mixed with another's and buried, and the rest with family or a holding area at the cemetary.

In addition to Amy I'm a Dusty Springfield fan as well. After she died in 1999, her brother scattered her ashes off the Irish coast, but she has a gravestone in Henley. (There's a big to-do with fans visiting it every April.)

i don't think that she has been buried yet.

as she is jewish - i reckon that the family might wait a year to do the stone setting then we will know where her ashes are.

anyone can go and visit a public cemetary.

is this sunk in for anyone yet? can't believe we discussing this. nearly a month since she left us and i think that i am still in denial and shock.
also anger actually - i want to shake her and shout 'WHAT DID YOU GO AND FO THAT FOR.'

Bah.

if people do come over and there is still no grave/headstone/statue. then maybe just go to the house and pay your respects. just remember to be quiet and respectful to the neighbours. xx

I feel like you juliannboo. Sometimes I say to me "OK she's dead, she's gone and you have to accept it" and then I ask myself "dead? She can't be dead, this can't be true. Why has she left us, doesn't she know how much we adore her?" I think we'll never get over this (or at least I think I won't). It strange, sad and extremely cruel. I've never feel this way before, I'm shocked, confused, sad, angry. All I wanna do is give her a big hug and tell her how incredibly amazing she is. OMG I'm crying like a baby again.
I’m a firm believer that we all meet up in eternity

It still feels very odd to me. Heard her on the radio this morning and was struck once again with that 'I'll never see her again' notion.

Agree with julieannboo - I was listening to Love is a Losing Game and some Aretha Franklin last night, thinking Amy you are up there with this caliber of singer. And realizing we'll never hear her really belt it out again, cracking jokes or see her performing with the band.

I almost can't believe such a force and vibrant soul is gone. She was like a musical tornado, in a good way of course.

And so many disgusting evil people stay here on earth year after year.....its makes no sense.

so many emotions, I know. I was more angry after Belgrade. I rushed home from work to search on YT and had to click off the minute I noticed things went askew. I sat here saying, "I am so mad at you right now." "I'm so mad at this girl." Now I feel badly because I know it is a disease.

what is hard is that I would google daily for all articles and pics and I selfishly want to see current ones...to know tht will never be makes me so sad.

I am a person of faith, which I won't ever discuss in forums but will just say that for me, it does help to understand and be greatful that she is happy now.

sigh. but alas, coming here is so very, very helpful. thank you all.

Is her wax figure still at Madama Tussands in London?!

Amy, are you happy?
She squints suspiciously at me.
"About what?"
About life.
"I'm happy about this salad."
