It is an extremely tough day for the Houston and Brown families.

Today marks the three-year anniversary of Whitney Houston's death, and members of her family are taking to Facebook and Instagram to post tributes to the late singer and actress, who left a powerful impact on the world with her wonderful talents; however, it is an especially difficult day as Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, remains hospitalized after also being discovered nearly drowned in a bathtub.

The family has been calling for continued prayers for Bobbi Kristina, but in the meantime they have taken a moment to honor their late relative.

Tina Brown, Houston's sister-in-law, posted on Facebook a message about the Grammy winner.

"I miss you MY sister...rip nip….I miss you sis,...like crazy!!!!!!-...rip my sister...," she posted, adding that she was "feeling heartbroken" in the status. She also included several photos of Whitney, including the Ebony cover of Whitney, husband Bobby Brown and their daughter.

Bobbi Kristina's cousin, Jerod Brown, posted a lengthy message in honor of the "My Love Is Your Love" singer and included the last photo he ever took with his aunt.

"You will never know the last moment you will experience, the last conversation you will have, the last photo you will take. Well this was the last photo we took with you auntie and if I would have known that I would've taken a few more lol," he wrote. "In life we forget to take a few more photos, share a few more laughs, shed a few more tears, overcome a few more struggles, mentor a few more people."

"By chance we are all born, by choice we live, and we are all promised death. One thing auntie was about was Family. Right or wrong, Family is Family. It was an honor to have known you, to be loved by you, and to be inspired by you. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU... ‪#‎WakeUpBK."

He also posted a YouTube video where he asked people what they would miss most about the Bodyguard actress.

Shayne Brown, Houston's nephew, wrote about his restlessness in anticipation of the tragic anniversary.

"Interview at 6am but unfortunately I cant sleep way 2 much on my mind," he wrote. "So room service it is..."
