Bobbi Kristina Brown has passed away at the age of 22. Her death was confirmed Sunday by the Houston family.

Bobbi Kristina died earlier on Sunday at the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia. She was surrounded by her family at the time of her passing.

It was back on January 31st that Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia townhouse. She was moved to a rehab center two months later, and to the hospice facility on June 24th. She never regained consciousness.

"She is finally at peace in the arms of God," a statement from the Houston family to Entertainment Tonight reads. "We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months."

Bobbi Kristina Brown had a very difficult time coming to terms with her mother Whitney Houston's untimely passing back in February of 2012. Bobbi Kristina was discovered in an eerily similar manner as her late mom. Bobbi Kristina was in the lobby of the Beverly Hilton when she learned her mom--in a room upstairs--had died.

After her mother's death, Bobbi Kristina Brown was comforted by Nick Gordon, a young man who had lived with Whitney Houston and grown up alongside her. The two became romantic and he told people they were married. Bobby Brown later clarified that statement when Bobbi Kristina was first hospitalized this past winter.

Nick Gordon was served with a $10 million civil suit a couple of weeks ago. The suit alleges he physically abused Bobbi Kristina Brown and stole money from her. It is uncertain, now that Bobbi Kristina has died if Nick Gordon might be charged with murder.

Bobby Brown, Cissy Houston, Pat Houston, and other relatives of Bobbi Kristina Brown are surely mourning her passing. Hopefully they are finding some peace in knowing she is now reunited with her mother.

While it is unthinkably sad that Bobbi Kristina Brown has lost her life at the tender age of 22, it was as unfathomable to imagine her living for months--or even years--hooked up to machines that were keeping her alive.

Prayers are no doubt being said by people from all around the world for Bobbi Kristina Brown's family members.

May Bobbi Kristina finally rest in peace.
