Married to David Bowie for 23 years, supermodel Iman reflected on the rock legend’s career, life and death in a series of emotional and nostalgic Instagram posts.

“The struggle is real, but so is God,” reads an unattributed quote posted as an image to her Instagram account Sunday, when Bowie died after an 18-month cancer battle that was shrouded in secret. That quote is accompanied by the caption: “Rise,” and the hashtag #ImanDaily.

The couple met in 1990, when Bowie reportedly fell in love at first sight, and married two years later. Their family includes daughter Alexandria, born in 2000, and two children from previous relationships — Iman’s older daughter, Zulekha Haywood, and Bowie’s son, Duncan Jones. While Iman and Bowie thrived professionally on international stages, they strove to keep their personal lives away from the public spotlight over the past decade. As Iman once told talk-show host Wendy Williams, “Home is private.”
