Bobbi Kristina Brown's neighbour says the young star missed her mother terribly.

The daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston passed away on Sunday after spending almost six months in a coma. She was just 22 years old.

Now her neighbour Debra Reis Brooks has revealed her close relationship with Bobbi and what a beautiful person she was.

"She was charming and sweet and beautiful and lovely," she told People magazine.

"I remember her opening the door with [her boyfriend] Nick [Gordon] and I waved and said, 'I am your new neighbour.' And being the sweetheart that she is, she ran out and gave me a hug. From that day forward we got to know each other very well."

Bobbi was found unconscious face down in her bathtub in January, which mimics the death of her mother Whitney, who drowned in a hotel bathtub in 2012.

According to Debra, Bobbi was always speaking about her mother and how much she missed her.

"She adored her mom and missed her terribly," she continued.

"We would sit on my back deck and she would just sing me her mother's songs and show me picture after picture of her mom. Krissy was very genuine and she really loved and missed her mama."

An initial autopsy was completed yesterday, but it was difficult to come to any conclusions.

"The autopsy does not show an obvious underlying cause of death and no significant injuries were noted,” Reuters reported.
