Whitney Houston: "nothing more incredible" than Bobbi Kristina

Bobbi Kristina Brown truly was her mother's greatest love of all.

In a June 1993 interview with Rolling Stone, Whitney Houston talked about fame, her film and music career, her marriage and other facets of her life. None of them came close to topping her joy at Bobbi Kristina, a baby at the time:

New book explores Bobbi Kristina’s troubled life

Houston died Feb. 11, 2012, after being discovered unresponsive in a bathtub. Nearly three years to the date later, her only child was discovered in tragically similar circumstances.

Bobbi Kristina moved to metro Atlanta after her mother's death. She starred in a short-lived reality show with members of her family, appeared in a few episodes of one of Tyler Perry's television shows and apparently was on the cusp of a music career when a Jan. 31 medical emergency struck.

One of her final Twitter posts, loaded with smiley face and musical instrument emoticons, hinted at a recording project in the works: “Let’s start this career up and moving OUT to TO YOU ALLLL quick shall we !?!???” 

ET reports that Bobbi Kristina's funeral will be in Atlanta and that she will be buried in New Jersey, next to her mom.
