Farewell to Whitney
An Exclusive Look as Houston's Family and Famous Friends Gathered Inside the Church, Where the Pop Legend Got Her Musical Start, and Celebrated Her Life One Last Time
A Daughter's Grief
As Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina adjusts to life without her mom ("They were like best friends," says a record exec who worked with the singer), the grieving 18-year-old is being watched over by her extended family, including her grandmother Cissy, 78, uncle Gary and aunt Pat. "Bobbi Kristina will not suffer any shortage of support," says the exec. She also still has her father, Bobby Brown, 43, who traveled to New Jersey to attend his ex-wife's funeral. However, Brown left the church early on, he claims, after he and his family were asked to move their seats. "Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter," Brown told PEOPLE in a statement. A source says "Krissi" didn't notice: "She didn't have time to focus on that. She was focused on the gold [casket]." While sources dispute a report that Krissi disappeared after the funeral and used drugs, there is still concern for her well-being in the wake of Houston's death. "She is struggling like any child who has lost her mom," says hairstylist LaVar. Adds another source: "It's hard for her right now, but she hasn't been taking drugs, and she's not trying to kill herself." Though it is still unclear when the aspiring singer ("She has a better voice than her mom," Bobby Brown told PEOPLE last year) will return home to Atlanta, LaVar believes there is a brighter future ahead for her: "She is a strong girl. I think with support she will make it through this."
