*Four years after his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away at the young age of 22, Bobby Brown took to Instagram to share an emotional tribute while calling attention to the foundation that her family established in her honor.
According to its website, the Bobbi Kristina Serenity House is a non-profit Domestic Violence Safe Haven founded by Bobby Brown in 2015. It was “formed and fueled by the love of a father whose daughter was a victim of domestic violence.”
“Hi Baby Girl: Every day I hold you close to my heart. I think about so many of the things you used to do, from a little girl to a beautiful young lady,” Brown wrote in IG the post. “I just smile! It reminds me of how much I miss my little girl more and more every day. So loved and so missed.”

“In keeping the flame burning, our family has started The Bobbi Kristina Serenity House foundation that is doing great things to help others in need, the way you would have if you were here,” he continued.
The foundation is focused on raising awareness and prevention surrounding domestic abuse.
A mission statement on the website reads, “The Bobbi Kristina’s Serenity House is committed to empowerment; regaining power within, instead of seeking approval and power from the outside sources.”
Brown ended his letter with, “Krissi, on this special day, we honor you, we love you and we shine a light on your memory.”
Bobbi Kristina, the only child of Brown and Whitney Houston, died July 26, 2015. Bobby noted in his Instagram post “Every day I hold you close to my heart.”
After Whitney died in 2012, Bobbi Kristina had her public struggles with substance abuse. Before her death, she was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home and had been in a coma for six months. Autopsy results said her death was caused by lobar pneumonia, due to her face being “in water complicating mixed drug intoxication” and “Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy.”
The medical examiner could not determine whether or not her death was accidental.
