NEW YORK, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Iman is remembering late husband David Bowie one year after his death.

The 61-year-old Somali model paid tribute to the English singer, born David Jones, Tuesday on Instagram on the anniversary of his passing.

"Jan 10th, 2016 NYC Skyline #ForeverAndEver #ForeverLove #BowieForever," she captioned a photo of a double rainbow above the New York City skyline.

Bowie died at age 69 on Jan. 10, 2016, following an 18-month battle with liver cancer. He and Iman were married nearly 24 years and share 16-year-old daughter Lexi Jones.

"We both understand the difference between the person and the persona," Iman said in an interview with Where Are They Now? that was filmed before the singer's death. "When we are home we are just Iman and David. We're not anybody else."

"You have to be at the right time in your life that you're ready for an everlasting relationship, that it becomes first and a priority in your life," she added during the episode, which aired in April.

BBC Two released a new documentary, David Bowie: The Last Five Years, this week in honor of the singer's birthday, Jan. 8. The show examined the star's last albums, The Next Day and Blackstar, and his play Lazarus.
