Tamera Mowry-Housley's Niece Dies in Thousand Oaks Shooting

After learning of her death, Tamera took to Instagram to pay tribute to her niece.

"Alaina. My sweet, sweet Alaina. My heart breaks. I'm still in disbelief. It's not fair how you were taken and how soon you were taken from us," Tamera wrote. "I was blessed to know you ever since you were 5. You stole my heart. I will miss our inside jokes, us serenading at the piano. Thank you for being patient with me learning how to braid your hair, and I will never forget our duet singing the national anthem at Napa's soccer game. I love you. I love you. I love you. You are gonna make one gorgeous angel."

She concluded her message, "My heart and prayers are with every victim of this tragedy."
