Like any mother and daughter, Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina had their share of ups and downs together, but their bond was always a close one.

When Houston appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2009, she gave a memorable musical performance and her first interview in nearly seven years. Bobbi Kristina was in the audience at the time, and when Oprah turned the conversation toward their mother-daughter relationship, the smiling teen gushed about the love they shared.

"Words can't explain how proud I am of her," Bobbi Kristina said. "I've been there with her, you know, through everything... I stay by her side. That's like my best friend. That's like my sister."

"It wasn't easy, but she never let go of my hand," Houston said. "And I never let go of hers."
