Saturday was a grim day for Demi Lovato. It was the day she said her final goodbye to her biological father Patrick.

The star, whose 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... #LovatoTreatmentScholarship." The hashtag refers to the X Factor judge's big news on Thursday, when she revealed that her father battled psychological issues and she’s 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.

"There’s an overwhelming sense of peace knowing my dad is no longer battling his demons anymore and that makes me so happy," she tweeted shortly after.
