Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse Remembered By 'Caribbean Mum'

A bar owner who Amy Winehouse branded her "Caribbean mummy" during her stay in St. Lucia has told of her shock over the star's death, remembering her as a "precious girl".
The Back to Black hitmaker spent eight months on the Caribbean island in 2009 in a bid to conquer her drink and drug addictions.
She grew close to beach trader Marjorie Lambert, and even helped save her home from repossession.
Lambert has been left heartbroken by the sad news of Winehouse's passing on Saturday (23Jul11), insisting the singer was happy and healthy while staying in the idyllic resort and became beloved among locals - and even paid for one of them to have life-saving surgery.
Lambert tells Britain's The Sun, "She once spent three weeks with me playing with my children, grandchildren, the dogs and riding the horses through the surf. She only drank fruit juice and ate lobster and crab when she was here. I never let anyone come close to her who'd have drugs. She'd listen to me.
"When she came back she called me mummy. She'd say, 'You're my Caribbean mummy, Marjorie.' She always came back to us, it was her favourite place.
"She used to sing at night with the regulars and looked after them. She paid for one friend's surgery while here. She saved his life. Someone should have saved my precious girl."
