Demi Lovato said a final goodbye to her father Patrick on Saturday.

The star, who’s dad died of cancer last week, tweeted, “Today I put my Daddy to rest…. hardest thing I’ve ever done.. But I know great things will come of this.”

“There’s an overwhelming sense of peace knowing my dad is no longer battling his demons anymore and that makes me so happy,” added Lovato.

On Thursday, the “X Factor” judge revealed her father battled psychological issues and she’s therefore decided to create a mental illness scholarship fund in his honor.

The Lovato Treatment Scholarship Program will cover treatment expenses for individuals who struggle with mental health problems.

Lovato herself suffers from bipolar disorder, and has been extremely open about her struggles with the illness.
