Though Whitney Houston has been laid to rest, her family, friends and fans are still in mourning. The late singer’s mother, gospel singer Cissy Houston, shares the pain of her loss and the joy of raising Whitney in a beautiful, tear-jerking letter written to her daughter after her passing. “I never told you that when you were born the Holy Spirit told me that you would not be with me for long and I thank God for the beautiful flower he allowed me to raise and cherish for 48 years,” Houston wrote, signing the letter “Mommie.” Read it in full below.

The letter was included in the booklet passed out at Whitney’s “home going” service on Saturday (Feb. 18).
