Actor Shemar Moore, known for his work on veteran soap opera, “The Young and the Restless,” and his long-running role on “Criminal Minds,” recently took to Instagram with an emotional message. His mother, Marilyn Wilson-Moore, passed away earlier this month. She suffered from a heart condition.

Shemar’s caption read:

“Marylin Joan Wilson-Moore, my mother, best friend, and partner in crime passed away Feb 8th at 76 years old… I miss her more than I ever thought possible and I don’t know how to do this life without her …. but I get my STRENGTH from her and I will be OK because of HER. Mama…. here come that man!!!!! What I do from this day forward is for YOU!!!! I’m going to continue to LEAP and pray that the NET appears!! It was too soon …. and it hurts so bad…. but I know you are with me and will continue to give me strength… I love you mama”

In his video, the actor said:

“This is real life. Your baby boy is okay, but I’m hurting real bad…I’ve been offline for some weeks now. I’ve had to keep a secret out of respect to my mom. Ten days ago, February 8th, 2020 – my mom, Marylin Joan Wilson-Moore – passed away…she’s gone. This is not a game. This is my whole life, everything I’ve ever known. I’m just shocked. I stay stunned. I am heartbroken.”


“My partner-in-crime. My ace boon coon. My Bonnie to my Clyde…I don’t know life without this woman. I don’t know what to do, but I will figure it out – ’cause that’s what she would want.”

Shemar Moore later shared a slideshow of photos and videos set to Celine Dion‘s “Because You Loved Me.”


Our condolences go out to Shemar Moore and Mrs. Wilson-Moore’s family and friends.
