AN UNTIMELY DEATH

24-year-old Lauren Braxton was pronounced dead shortly after she collapsed on the kitchen floor on April 29. She was suffering a heart condition that took her life that fateful day.

Lauren is the niece of Toni Braxton and the daughter of her only brother, Michael Braxton. Her death was a big blow to the family being their first close relative to depart this world.

“I miss you so much, but I know you are already happy there."

MISSING HER ON HER BIRTHDAY

LoLo, as she was fondly called would have turned 25 last week and Evelyn made sure to celebrate her birthday through pleasant thoughts about her.

On her Instagram, Evelyn shared a sweet photo of her and Lauren sharing a hug followed by another of a young Lauren on her high chair eating cake. The third photo was one of the young woman’s more recent images from her social media.

“Thinking of you on this birthday of yours…” Evelyn began to caption the series of snaps.

“I miss you so much, but I know you are already happy there and that thought makes me feel better, Happy Birthday Lauren MomMoms Loves You so much.”

HER CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH HER GRANDMOTHER

She also adored her grandmother Evelyn who would also often be featured on her page. She would speak of their good looks using the hashtag #LookAtGood, the same one Evelyn used in her recent birthday post for Lauren.

“We all turned up for u yesterday and sent wishes for u with balloons in the sky!"

AN AUNT SHARES A BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE

But it wasn’t only Evelyn who remembered Lauren on her birthday. Tamar Braxton also took to her Instagram to wish Lauren a happy 25th.

“We all turned up for u yesterday and sent wishes for u with balloons in the sky!” she wrote.

Tamar was previously slammed for suggesting she wasn’t going to attend her niece’s funeral due to exhaustion. In an Instagram Live video, she said she didn't have time to go. Fans criticized her for her lack of sympathy and she retaliated by asking people not to judge others for how they choose to grieve.
