Six years after a massacre took place in Sandy Hook Elementary School, the former 'Sister, Sister' star posts a heartfelt message for Alaina Housley who was killed in a California bar shooting.

AceShowbiz - Tamera Mowry-Housley has shared an emotional tribute to her niece, who was killed in a bar shooting.

The actress and TV presenter mourned the loss of Alaina Housley, 18, who was killed in the Borderline Bar and Grill shooting in California in November. She was among the 12 victims of the terrifying incident at the college bar, which left more than 21 injured.

Gunman Ian David Long, a 28-year-old US Marine Corps veteran, was reportedly found dead at the scene from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to CNN.

Continuing to grieve her family's loss, Tamera shared a photo of Alaina with her 6-year-old son, Aden, on Instagram.

"Alaina. God, we miss you. Yesterday you were supposed to come home. The questions of why consume my mind. But I must hold on to the fact that our Lord is sovereign," the former "Sister, Sister" star wrote in the heartbreaking post.

"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," Tamera added.

"The Real" co-host also noted that she was sharing her emotional post on the six-year anniversary of the devastating Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, in which 20 children and six teaching staff were shot dead by gunman Adam Lanza.

Alaina. God, we miss you. Yesterday you were supposed to come home. 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. 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.⁣ ⁣ Ironically, 6 years ago today the senseless shooting of #sandyhookelementary occurred. Praying for the families and individuals who have had to endure and survive senseless gun violence. The world moves on. We don’t.
