Now that Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away after nearly six months in a coma, her loved ones can have begun the process of grieving...and fighting over her fortune.
But amidst all the drama at Bobbi Kristina's funeral and the legal infighting that's sure to consume her family for the next several years, some who knew the 22-year-old best are sharing fond memories of the bright-eyed aspiring singer who tragically succumbed to the same demons that claimed the life of her famous mother.
One such friend is Sammy Tawil, who claims to have been the last person to speak to Krissi on the phone before the tragic accident that would eventually claim her life.
“I spoke with her the day before she was found,” Tawil tells Radar Online.
The longtime associate of the Brown family says Krissi was "like a daughter" to him and most of their final conversation consisted of her eagerly describing her future career plans.
'“She wasn’t crying, she was upbeat, excited to go to L.A," Tawil says. "She wanted to go in the studio.”
Asked if he ever got the impression that boyfriend Nick Gordon was abusive to Bobbi Kristina, Tawil claims that she was so optimistic each time he spoke to her that he had never got the impression anything was amiss.
“I didn’t sense anything bad,” he says. “She wasn’t depressed. I haven’t personally seen any flare-ups, fighting or physical contact with her or Nick.”
Tawil attended the Bobbi Kristina's burial in New Jersey last week, and he says that the ceremony was sparsely attended by "about 20 people."
He adds that the Brown and Houston families kept their distance from one another, but "there was no tension."
