"This is very hard for me," the 35-year-old artist wrote, posting an image of herself standing next to a placard of her famous father.

Along with the pictures from the ceremony, Violette posted some of her father's famous lyrics — writing, "You belong somewhere you feel free," from Petty's tune "Wildflowers," for example, to go along with a photo of a solitary flower.

The shrine and meditation garden previously was the site of the funeral for Tom Petty's Traveling Wilburys bandmate George Harrison 16 years ago.

Petty died Oct. 2 after suffering cardiac arrest in his Los Angeles home. He was 66.

Since her father's death, Violette has been sharing both her family's pride over the "American Girl" singer's legacy and grief over his passing.

"I feel grateful for having the greatest rock star as a dad," she wrote on the day of his death.
