Just a day after her unfortunate death, Amy Winehouse‘s parents, Mitch and Janis — seen above with the ‘Rehab’ singer’s wax figure — have come forward to make statements regarding her passing.

Unfortunately, Winehouse’s mother Janis told reporters that she saw her daughter just 24 hours before she died, and predicted that Amy would die in “only a matter of time.” Though they spent the whole day together on Friday, Janis admits that something wasn’t quite right. “She seemed out of it. But her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me,” she commented, according to the DailyMail. When it was time for them to part ways, Amy apparently stood on her doorstep and told her mother that she loved her. “They are the words I will always treasure and always remember Amy by,” Janis spilled.

Amy’s father Mitch, who is also a performer and who was very close to his daughter, flew from New York to London when he heard the news. “I’m coming home. I have to be with Amy,” he said. “I can’t crack up for her sake. My family need me.”

The family released the following official statement to the press:

“Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives. We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time.”

We at PopCrush send our condolences to the family and friends of Amy Winehouse, may she R.I.P.!
