At [article id="1620797"]DJ AM's memorial[/article] at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday, the celebrity DJ's family and friends gathered to remember [article id="1619854"]AM, who was found dead[/article] in his New York apartment less than a week before.
AM (born Adam Goldstein), who is suspected to have died of a drug overdose, had been sober for about a decade when he was found dead. The service, which was attended by ex-fiancée Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and other famous friends, was in the style of a 12-step meeting. AM's girlfriend, Hayley Wood, spoke at the memorial, People reported.
"I have never experienced anything quite like Adam Goldstein. He made me feel warm and whole," said Wood, who was one of the few people to speak, according to People's source. "He smelled soft. Adam was a remarkable human being, and so many have been blessed by his presence."
She went on to say that while they were together, "We talked of marriage and excitement of having children together. He would whisper in my ear sometimes before we went to sleep, 'Goodnight, my sweet angel.' Most mornings when I woke up, he'd make me toast and juice and say, 'Good morning, soul mate.' I will cherish the memories forever.
"Even though our time together was short, I would change nothing," Wood added. "The love I continue to feel for him and the love that we shared together will live with me and those who witnessed us together forever. ... I will never be the same without him. A part of me has passed away with him. Even the warmest of days will never compare to the warmth I felt when I touched him. He was my soul mate, and now he is my soul. He was my amazing grace."
During the service, the DJ booth where AM used to spin was left empty except for his laptop, headphones and two pairs of sneakers in his place.
