Families are struggling to make plans for memorials and funerals for the dozen victims of last week's shooting in California.

"My daughter's body was brought back to Napa today," Arik Housley told CBS This Morning of the massacre's youngest victim, his 19-year-old daughter, Alaina Housley, who will be buried near Napa. "We're going to bury her in four days. I should not have to do that."

And Alaina's uncle, former Fox News correspondent Adam Housley, said he and his family are living the tragedy he and other reporters have had to cover so often over the past few years .

"She was an incredible, beautiful girl who didn't hurt anybody, and was excited to go to Italy for a program overseas. Senseless, man, just senseless," Adam, who is married to Sister, Sister star Tamera Mowry Housley, recently said of the Pepperdine University freshman.

As Radar reported, on Nov. 7, 29-year-old Marine Corps vet Ian David Long opened fire at college students who were enjoying a night out at the popular Thousand Oaks bar Borderline.

"Alaina was beautiful," Tamera told CBS. "And she was my friend. Yes, there needs to be a change, but all the noise … nothing's been done."

"We don't want the conversation to end," she added.

"It can't this time," echoed Adam. "We want it to continue."

Alain's father also noted how he thinks it's so important to take a moment to reconnect with each other.

"To us, it's to be kind to one another," said Arik. "It's to put down your technology, put down your phones and look at somebody and have a conversation. It's not about gun control; this message is about doing something bigger, to be with your community, to love one another."
