Actresses Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley have always been open about their faith, noting the large role it plays in their lives.
After losing their grandmother this week, the sisters, who rose to fame while starring in the hit show “Sister, Sister,” told their followers that they are turning to God in this time of tragedy. Tia and Tamara took to Instagram to announce that after fighting a battle against cancer, their grandmother had gone home to be with the Lord.
“You went on to see the Lord this morning and I’m so happy I got to see you,” Tia wrote. “I thank God. I love you grandma, I love you. My heart is broken.”
The actress and mother of two also shared another photo of her grandmother touching her then-pregnant belly, captioning the photo, “I’m so happy you got to see her.”
“Cairo,” she added. ” You prayed for her in my womb and now you got to touch and see her before you transitioned. It was your wish. We miss you already. I love you Clo.”
Tamera Mowry-Housley also shared a photo with her grandmother from her wedding, announcing that she had gone to be with the Lord, after a “long, long fight.”
“Your wish was to be around your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ariah, Aden, Adam and I miss you so much. I love you love you. Till we meet again,” she wrote.
“Give God your weakness and He will give you His strength. #missyougranny,” Tamerea wrote in a separate Instagram post this week.
Before her grandmother passed, Tamera shared a photo of them holding hands.
“Grandma Clo,” she wrote, “You are the strongest person I know. You are the matriarch of our family. Every good thing trickles down from you. You amaze me every day with your strength and unconditional love. Your obedience and love towards our Heavenly Father is admirable. Love you so so so much. #cancersucks.”
Just this past November, Tamera and her husband Adam Housley, a former Fox News correspondent, experienced tragedy when they lost their niece Alaina Housley in the California bar shooting.
In wake of the loss of her niece, Tamera also turned to God.

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.
“The questions of why consume my mind,” she wrote. “But I must hold on to the fact that our Lord is sovereign.”
