"The Houston estate asked if I would share this tribute that I put together for Bobbi Kristina's private funeral," he wrote."On behalf of the Brown and Houston families, we would all like to thank you for your prayers and support. God bless."

It's posted on Perry's Facebook page.

Bobbi Kristina was 22, and was apparently on the cusp of launching a music career when a Jan. 31 medical emergency sent her to the hospital.

“It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers,” the family announced. “As Bobbi Kristina would say: “The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.”
