Love, Daddy", this is a reference to Whitney Houston's popular song, I Will Always Love You. Despite a plea to attend the memorial service, Brown's ex, Nick Gordon was not there.

Kardashian sisters still call Caitlyn 'Bruce'
Khloe Kardashian admitted on Australia's The Project that her family are still adjusting to Caitlyn Jenner's gender transition, including calling her by her new name. "We don't like to say Bruce is gone per se. We, my sisters and I, we will call Caitlyn 'Bruce', and we've been told that's completely fine. She has told us we are allowed to call her any name we want to, because on the phone when she calls me it's still the same voice as Bruce. If I'm not physically with her it's hard to remember in the moment that I'm talking to Caitlyn if that makes sense" the reality TV star explained. Kardashian mentioned that Caitlyn has accepted that she may sometimes still be referred to as Bruce Jenner.
