Tamar Braxton took to social media late Wednesday night to pay tribute to her niece, Lauren Braxton, on the one-year anniversary of her death.

Lauren, who is the daughter of Tamar’s brother, Michael Braxton, died of a heroin overdose. She was just 24.

Tamar shared a precious photo of Lauren as a little girl with the caption:

The fcknesssssnesssss of it all @lolobrax I waited till the end of my day because I didn’t want to post this.

I’m still in disbelief that It is real. A whole 365 days and nights later I still remember when I was told, where I was, where I was going, what I had on & also my heart breaking into a zillion pieces.

I couldn’t tell anyone why I’ve been so blue these past few days. I couldn’t shake my pain….In many ways we shared hiding how we truly felt. ?I know you are my beautiful angel and sometimes I can see your image. you know that. ??‍♀️✨

I remember this picture. I remember naming you and arguing that you would be mad if u didn’t have the name Lauren Christina (they didn’t listen) (you were mad when i told you?) just like then, before I met you, you were my baby, you still are. And will always be. I love you. ? ??✨
