Friends and Family of Bobbi Kristina Brown gathered together to say goodbye to Whitney Houston’s 22-year-old daughter.

The service took place at the Saint James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia on Saturday.

Funeral guests were escorted to the church by police motorcycles, while fans gathered outside to pay their respects.

“My friend and I drove from Wilmington, North Carolina, to show our support of Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina,” a fan told People magazine. “Whitney’s music got us through some hard times.”

Brown’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who claims to be her husband, is currently facing a $40 million civil lawsuit, accusing him of domestic abuse and theft. The self-proclaimed husband recently wrote a letter to Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, and aunt, Pat Houston, begging them to allow his attendance at the funeral.

Gordon was not seen in attendance at the private, invitation-only service.

Brown was found unconscious in her Georgia home bathtub on Jan. 31, six months before her death at an Atlanta hospice center. Beloved family and friends surrounded Brown at the time of her death, on Sunday.

Following the young star’s death, the Houston family released a statement concerning their loss.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away Sunday, July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the statement read. “We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

Shortly after the Houston’s statement, Bobby Brown released his own statement, saying, “Krissy was and is an angel. I am completely numb at this time. My family must find a way to live with her 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.”

Brown will be buried alongside her mother in New Jersey’s Fairview Cemetery, on Monday.
