“We had plans – our journey was already great… But, we had plans – we were almost there”.
Then Shemar Moore talked about Marilyn Wilson-Moore’s health issues. “She was tired – she had heart issues. She had MS, as you know. I don’t know what the doctors are going to tell me.”
Then, Shemar Moore defended posting the video – in case anyone said something negative (but how could you criticize this loving tribute?).
Shemar said: “I’m telling you this – I’m not exploiting her on social media. I’m telling you this because you knew her from afar… I’m not famous without her and I made her famous”.
“But, I don’t exist without this woman. I don’t have what I have. I don’t do what I do without this woman… She took me around the world and when it was my turn, I took her around the world”.

The sad yet sweet video from the Young and the Restless actor shared an interesting tidbit from his past. He held up a large portrait of himself with his mother (see above) where he was putting on lipstick.
Shemar Moore said: “I was the little girl that she never had. That’s why in this picture, I’m putting lipstick on. Because she thought she was going to have a little girl. My name is Shemar Frankin Moore. But, my name was supposed to be Mayana Lisa Moore. So, I was joking around and put some lipstick on”.
Then, Shemar added: “Me and her dreamed. And my story’s incredible. Her story’s remarkable. Our stories together are seemingly impossible – but we did it together”.
Then he went on. “My mother Marilyn, mama, she’s gone and it’s killing me. I’m down, dissed, without this woman… 1, 2, 3, 4 – I don’t know what number I’m at. But you damned right, I will get up before they say 10”.

Although Marilyn Wilson-Moore had MS, it looks like her passing was quick and unexpected. So, Shemar Moore said he was waiting to hear from the doctors. Presumably on what happened and why the Criminal Minds actor lost his mother.
Shemar said: “My mama was stronger than I’d never know how to be. And if I didn’t get up, I would disappoint her. I will get up and I will come back swinging, fighting, swagging… I gotta figure out the next chapter without my mama”.
As he continued visibly upset, Shemar Moore said: “I have nothing. I know nothing. I’m not here if my mother didn’t think outside the box. If she wasn’t brave, if she wasn’t strong, if she wasn’t smart… I can keep going…”
“I’m okay, I’m just hurt real bad. Real bad. But I’m gonna stand up and I’m going to continue to chase my dreams and be somebody. Mama, here come that man, still. Because, that’s the boy she raised…”
Finally, Shemar Moore spoke to fans about his mother one last time before ending the eulogy to Marilyn Wilson-Moore, his mother.
He said: “I’m not famous, I’m not Hondo, I ain’t sh*t without this woman. I’m just a man and I’m gonna miss my mama for the rest of my life. I love you guys, I love how you supported my mom, I love how you support me”.
