Family bids farewell to Bobbi Kristina Brown

Member of Bobbi Kristina Brown family speaks to media after leaving funeral.

ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Friends and family of Bobbi Kristina Brown gathered in Alpharetta to say goodbye to the young woman, who died in hospice care Sunday at age 22.

The private ceremony, taking place at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, comes nearly six months after the only child of Grammy winner Whitney Houston and fellow singer Bobby Brown was found facedown and unconscious in her bathtub. She never regained consciousness to tell anyone what happened that morning.

Brown's hearse arrived from the Murray Brothers Funeral Home around 9:30 a.m., approximately two hours before a police escort ushered in a procession of vehicles carrying the Houston and Brown families as well as Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. Singer Monica and actor Michael Jai White were also seen filing into the church.

Leolah Brown, Bobbi Kristina's aunt, left the services early and had choice words for Pat Houston, another aunt. Leolah Brown said that she'll be speaking out in the future "and telling the truth about who Pat is."

Leolah Brown said she told Pat that "Whitney was going to haunt her from the grave."

Nick Gordon, who claimed to be her husband, was reportedly not in attendance, despite his impassioned plea to Bobbi Kristina's father and aunt.

Bobbi Kristina's remains are expected to be interred alongside those of her mother Monday in New Jersey.
