“Today we lay you to rest sweet angel,” the 40-year-old TV star captioned an inspirational message on Instagram. “I’ll miss you forever and your sweet smile. Until we meet again. This quote was sent to me by my friend David. When I am having a challenging day, I cling to it.”
The inspirational quote reads, “Grief never ends… but 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 among the 12 gunned down at the Borderline Bar and Grill Shooting in Thousand Oaks, Calif., in early November. The gunman was a Marine Corps veteran.
After hearing news of the shooting, both Mowry and Housley turned to social media to track down Alaina.
Shortly after, the family delivered a statement confirming her death saying in part, “Our hearts are broken. We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night’s shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks. Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner. We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for privacy at this time.”
Alaina was 18.
