About an hour after the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22-year old's family issued a brief and heartfelt tribute to the daughter of Whitney Houston Facebook.
'It is hard to say goodbye," reads the message of Whitney's official account.
"On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers.
"As Bobbi Kristina would say: 'The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.'"
The Facebook page also shared the above photo of Whitney Houstin and her only child.
Tragically, Bobbi Kristina's loved ones had a very long time to craft their reaction to this terrible news.
On January 31, Bobbi fell unconscious while in the bathtub of her Georgia home.
She was rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive and facedown and placed in a medically-induced coma.
Bobbi never recovered from this incident, being moved from facility to facility until ultimately passing away while under hospice care.
"She is finally at peace in the arms of God," the Houston family told Us Weekly in a statement Sunday. "We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."
The Hollywood Gossip extends its thoughts, prayers and condolences to all of Bobbi's loved ones.
