A funeral will be held at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia on Saturday, according to ABC News, before her body is buried next to her mother’s in New Jersey.
“Krissy was and is an angel,” her father said in a statement to ABC. “My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable. We thank everyone for the prayers for Krissy and our family as we mourn my baby girl.”
The same day, a source close to the family told People magazine about Bobby’s emotional state: “He is holding it together more than you'd expect. He knew it was coming. Of course he's very emotional, but at the same time, he knows that Krissy is in a better place now.”
Bobbi Kristina, an aspiring singer and actress, was first hospitalised on January 31st. She was moved to a rehab facility in March after being placed in a coma, from which she never emerged. The following month, her aunt, Pat Houston, said that Bobbi Kristina had suffered “irreversible brain damage”. In June, she was moved again to hospice care, before passing away on Sunday (July 26th).
