“Two years without you…it still hurts. I miss my Lai Lai. The kids still talk about you and know you are their personal angel. I’ll never forget. Prayers to all those affected by gun violence. And to all the the [sic] victims still living with the aftermath of it,” Mowry-Housley captioned a video on social media.

The Real alum also tagged the foundation set up in honor of Alaina in the post. The Alaina’s Voice Foundation’s “mission is to inspire hope and kindness in our communities through education, music, and mental health initiatives”, according to the foundation’s website.

Twelve people were killed in the shooting on Nov. 7, 2018,  Alaina was the youngest victim of the shooting at 18 years of age when her life was cut short when Marine veteran, 28-year-old Ian David Long, walked into the country music bar and started shooting, before taking his own life.

Tamera Mowry-Housley is related to Alaina through her husband, former Fox News journalist and current winery owner, Aaron Housley.
