Tamera Mowry-Housley’s niece Alaina Housley has been laid to rest, one week after she died in the shooting at a college bar in Thousand Oaks, California.
“Today we lay you to rest sweet angel,” Mowry-Housley, 40, wrote on Instagram Thursday.
“I’ll miss you forever and your sweet smile. Until we meet again💕” the Real co-host continued.
Alongside her heartfelt caption, Mowry-Housley shared a touching quote that her friend, David, sent to her, which she clings to when she is “having a challenging day.”
The quote reads: “Grief never ends … but it changes. It’s a passage, not a place to stay. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith …. It is the price of love.”
Alaina was at the Borderline Bar & Grill with a group of friends when a gunman opened fire last week. The bar was reportedly hosting a college night for country music fans.
At least 12 people were killed in the shooting. Shots were first reported about 11:20 p.m. at the bar in Thousand Oaks, west of Los Angeles, Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean told reporters.
