"The struggle is real, but so is God."

Although David Bowie lived the life of the quintessential rockstar during the 1970s and '80s, his life was marked by one true love: supermodel Iman, who Bowie married in 1992. With the rock icon now dead at age 69 after an 18-month battle with cancer, his devoted wife is reminding the world just how important his legacy is.

In the days before Bowie's passing, Iman used her Instagram account to highlight some of the most iconic moments from The Man Who Fell to Earth's legendary half-century career. Her post in the hours before Bowie's death became international news? "The struggle is real, but so is God."

While Harpaar's Bazaar points out that "many are reposts from other celebrities, such as Christy Turlington and Zoe Saldana, paying tribute to the rock star on his 69th birthday," they still form a beautiful tapestry of love and support for her husband during his final days. If there's such a thing as a pre-eulogy, this is it.
