Tamera Mowry-Housley posted a touching tribute to her late niece on Thursday on the one-year anniversary of her murder in a mass shooting.

The Real co-host and actress’ and husband Adam Housley‘s niece Alaina Housley, an 18-year-old college freshman, was one of 12 people that a former U.S. Marine shot to death at the Western-themed Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, near Los Angeles, on Nov. 7, 2018. The gunman then took his own life.

“Today marks one year since we lost our sweet angel Alaina,” Tamera wrote on Instagram. I miss her every single day, but I know she is always with us and watching over our family from Heaven. In her honor, we are fighting on her behalf through the @alainasvoicefoundation. We are asking for our leaders to start the discussion to create #CHANGE. Along with @napavalley1839fc we have had #ENOUGH. #alainasvoice.”

Tamera helped establish the Alaina’s Voice Foundation non-profit group earlier this year. Its mission is “to inspire hope and kindness in our communities through education, music, and mental health initiatives.”

“Alaina Maria Housley died on November 7, 2018 when someone entered the Borderline Bar in Thousand Oaks California while she was line dancing and shot her, and 11 other people, taking their lives,” the website states. “While her body is gone, her voice will live on.”
