Bobbi Kristina Brown was buried alongside her mother, Whitney Houston, on Monday, bringing to a close the brief and tragic life of the only child of the singing legend.

About a dozen fans came out to the cemetery in Westfield, New Jersey, to pay their respects to Brown, 22, who died in Georgia last week six months after being found face down and unconscious in a bathtub at her home.

Holding pictures of Brown and Houston, who was born in New Jersey, fans crammed against police barricades as a gold-colored hearse passed through the gates of the cemetery where the "I Will Always Love You" singer was buried three years ago.

Brown, the daughter of Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, died after suffering irreversible brain damage in a still unexplained January incident at her Roswell, Georgia, home.

She was found unresponsive in a bathtub by her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, and a friend in an eerie echo of her mother's death. Whitney Houston, who had a long history of drug abuse, drowned in a bathtub at a Beverly Hills hotel in 2012 at age 48.

The burial ceremony was for friends and family only and fans and the media were barred from the graveside.
