Yocheved Gourarie of New York City died Tuesday afternoon after jumping off the ship in Brookyln's Hudson Yards.
A suicide note appeared on her Instagram profile the day after her death.
Accompanied by a photo of Gourarie looking into the sunlight, a message to her 2,610 followers said, "I hope you can find some comfort knowing I am no longer in pain."
It was preceded by a warning. It asked readers to sit down before reading it.
The post then went on, "By the time you're reading this I'll be gone. Either that or somehow disabled in the hospital so I can't delete this post that I was planning to post. I really hope I'm not."
In the post, Gourarie fails to address the reasons she is "gone".
In previous posts on the account, she shared information about her struggles with anorexia and depression.
Gourarie admitted in the mail that she had "planned" a note to posthumously send to her parents.
She added, "If you choose to share or publish it, you may have access to more insight."
Her father responded in the comment section on Wednesday.
Avrami Gourarie replied, "I just want to thank everyone who wrote here. Your kind words mean a lot to my family."
He added that he could discuss private emails she sent him sometime after Shiva - the Jewish period of mourning - in a Zoom meeting.
Her father posted a photo of him with his daughter on Sunday. He spoke of her "unique musical connection" and how she had supported his "musical achievements and struggles".
He previously shared a picture of a puppy on his profile. He stated that he would send her pictures of dogs daily while Yocheved was at an eating disorders clinic in Utah.
He closed the post by calling his daughter the "cutest, prettiest, kindest" puppy "a father could hope for.
