Tamera Mowry-Housley Posts Tribute to Slain Niece Alaina Housley One Month After Tragic Mass Shooting in Thousand Oaks

Over a month after the tragic death of her 18-year-old niece, Tamera Mowry-Housley is continuing to mourn the loss of Alaina Housley.

“Alaina. God, we miss you,” Mowry-Housley, 40, wrote on Instagram Friday alongside a shot of Alaina, who died on Nov. 7 in the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, posing with her son Aden, 6.

“Yesterday you were supposed to come home,” she continued, presumably referring to the date Alaina was scheduled to return home from college for winter break. “The questions of why consume my mind. But I must hold on to the fact that our Lord is sovereign. The reality of you not being here hits stronger today. I miss your giggles, I miss your smile, I miss the way you would roll your eyes when you heard someone say something crazy. I miss the way you would so gracefully scoop up Ariah and Aden, and the way you took their hands and walked away to play.”

“You had a heart pure with love and kindness. Oh what this world needs more of now,” she continued. “My children loved you. I loved you. I know I have a guardian angel with me now. But selfishly I want you here with me. Until we meet and sing again.”

Mowry went on to acknowledge the fact that her post coincided with the six-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting, which killed 26 people, including 20 first-graders, in Newtown, Connecticut.
