One of the last people to see Whitney Houston alive says he's still trying to process her loss.

It is rumored that she and Ray J were back on romantically, and he says in a statement to Celebuzz that "she will live in my heart forever."

"Over the past few days I've tried to process the emptiness that I am experiencing," Ray J says. "What my heart feels cannot be expressed in words. The world lost an icon but I lost my close friend. Nippy I miss you so much! You were so happy and full of love. Your smile will live in my heart forever."

A private viewing is planned today for the late performer. Tomorrow's funeral service is by invitation-only but will be streamed live online from the New Hope Baptist Church in New Jersey, the church Whitney grew up singing in.

According to TMZ, Whitney will be placed next to her father John Russell Houston, Jr. at the Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey. The site also reports that Mel Gibson tried to help Whitney when she was going through hard times several years ago. They report that he's unable to attend the funeral, but he was invited.
