Funeral arrangements have been made for the late Bobbi Kristina Brown. The young woman’s loved ones will come together in Georgia this weekend to mourn and celebrate her too-short life.
Sources say that the funeral will be held on Saturday morning, Aug. 1. It was originally scheduled for Thursday, July 30, but an insider tells Us that certain family members couldn’t make it that evening, prompting the rescheduling.
The services will take place at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Ga. Those who were close to the only child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston will say their goodbyes before she is buried two days later.
A private burial is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 3, in New Jersey. Bobbi Kristina, who was 22 years old at the time of her untimely death, is expected to be buried next to her iconic mother in Westfield, N.J.’s Fairview Cemetery. New Jersey native Houston, who died at the age of 48, was laid to rest in the cemetery after her February 2012 death.
Bobbi died on Sunday, July 26, after spending months in the hospital and in hospice care. An autopsy was performed this week to determine just what happened before she was found unresponsive in her Georgia home on Jan. 31, but early results provided few details. A representative for the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office statescthat additional testing will be performed to help determine a cause of death.
Bobbi Kristina was remembered by her famous family members and friends. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the Houston family told Us Weekly in a statement, while Oprah Winfrey added, “Peace at Last!”
The Fulton County Medical Examiner has released Bobbi Kristina‘s body and it is currently at a funeral home in preparation for burial next to her mom.
The body was released Tuesday at around noon, a day after an autopsy was performed. The Medical Examiner has all the information he needs to determine the official cause of death, although it appears from the preliminary results there were no signs of foul play.
The service is set for Saturday at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, GA.
