Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, died on Sunday at the age of 22 following a long hospitalization.

“Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family,” read a statement provided to EW by the Houston family. “She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

Tributes and condolences to Brown rocketed around social media on Sunday evening, but one of the most touching came from the official Facebook page for Houston, who died of accidental drowning in 2012.

“It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers,” read the Houston Facebook page. “As Bobbi Kristina would say: ‘The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.'” A photo of Houston with Brown when she was a child was posted alongside the caption.
