Like many young people, Bobbi Kristina Brown lived her life for the world to see on social media. Now, it’s where she is being memorialized in death.

Brown, the only child of the late Whitney Houston and ex-husband Bobby Brown, died Sunday at the age of 22. Her death came nearly six months after she was found unresponsive and not breathing in the bathtub at her Roswell, Georgia, home on January 31. That incident occurred nearly three years to the day after her mother accidentally drowned in a bathtub in Beverly Hills.

Many of the online tributes linked her passing with that of her mother and focused on the pair being reunited in death.

There was an outpouring of sympathy for legendary singer Cissy Houston, who has now lost her daughter and granddaughter.

Fans also expressed concern for singer Bobby Brown, who had been steadfast in his hope that his daughter would recover.

Celebrities including Oprah Winfrey (who interviewed Brown after Houston’s death), rapper Missy Elliott and reality star Kylie Jenner offered their condolences. “Selma” director Ava DuVernay tweeted, “She seemed to be caught in the web of celebrity upon arrival. Twenty two years. A sad end. May the sister have peace now.”

Whitney Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick kept her scheduled appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Sunday night and talked to host Andy Cohen about the loss.

“She was a sweetheart, and she will be missed, that’s for sure,” the singer said. “And she was a good girl. … She was a good little girl, she really was.”
