Condolences are continuing to pour in over the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year-old only child of Whitney Houston who passed away yesterday in Duluth, Ga., after being unconscious for nearly six months. Brown's father, Bobby Brown, has reportedly found some peace in the midst of his grief. "He is taking comfort in the fact that she's with her mother, and that there will be no more sadness or pain," a source tells People. Singer Monica echoed similar sentiments. "You kept telling me life wasn't the same without Mommy," she writes on Instagram. "In all this pain and every tear shed I find a small bit of peace knowing that your [sic] with her again." Houston passed away in February 2012 after being found in a hotel bathtub.

Viola Davis was one of many who offered prayers for the Houston and Brown families. "May #BobbiKristina, rest peacefully with her mother in heaven," she tweeted this morning. Oprah Winfrey, Kylie Jenner, Perez Hilton, Taraji P. Henson, and the Rev. Al Sharpton also offered their condolences. "My prayers are with Cissy Houston, Bobby Brown, and the entire family and love ones of Bobbi Christina," Sharpton tweeted. "So sad. May God grant her peace." The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy, the AP reports, although the length of time Brown spent unconscious will "complicate" its efforts.
