Dad Bobby Brown, Pat Houston, Gary Houston, and Bobbi Kristina’s conservator Bedelia C. Hargrove, along with other family members, joined together in prayer at the Atlanta, Ga., hospice while Bobbi Kristina took her finals breaths. According to the source, Bobby led the family in prayers and the whole family sang hymns together following her death.

“The family was very sad to see her go, but her physical condition had really deteriorated and she didn’t look like herself,” the insider tells Us of the aspiring singer, who remained in a coma for nearly six months following her Jan. 31 hospitalization. “The family knew it was time to let Bobbi be with her mother.”

According to Entertainment Tonight, Bobbi Kristina’s time of death was called at 8:17 p.m. A source told ET that it was as if the Grammy-winning songstress was there calling her daughter to the other side. The insider added that Bobbi Kristina’s death was “very peaceful, quiet, and beautiful.” According to ET, Bobbi Kristina’s funeral is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, July 30, in Atlanta. The family source told ET that because Bobbi Kristina never had a Sweet 16 party, her funeral will be a celebration, like “the Sweet 16 she never had.”

"Krissy fought to get well for months, however she has succumbed to her injuries,” Bobby’s lawyer Christopher Brown of Brown & Rosen LLC told Us in a statement on Monday, July 26.

"Krissy was and is an angel," Bobby also told Us in a statement. "I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her in spirit and honor her memory. Our loss is unimaginable."
