Mr. Moore My deepest sympathy. I can admit I didn't know your mom, but I did feel your pain like I did. I know it's been a little over a year now that your mom has left you. I know it seems like only yesterday and at 10 years out it will still feel like yesterday, but a little softer pain. But believe me her spirit will always be near at all times. I know that pain, cause I lost my mom at the young age of 21. It was rough, but I can tell you the memories soon came as a joy. You're mom made you a strong will person and she knows you will press on in your life. And what you done in your life has made her very proud.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your wonderful mother. Working with her at HP Customer Visit center was a pleasure. Her personality, and work ethic was exceptional.
Her pride in you was evident. She was so excited to have us attend your performance in Tyler Perry's stage play in Oakland years ago.

She knows that you are hurting, and she along with THE LORD will comfort you thru this hard time. As time goes by, you will always have her in your heart & will never forget how she loves you & the pain of your loss will lighten as time goes by. Just be aware of small simple things that will prove she's still watching over you because she IS! All my love to you. From a very BIG fan of yours...

I ddint know her, but I miss her...
I can see the pain in your eyes just from the screenshot photo of video post and I miss her with you.

I've lost a few people very close to me. Watched a few die while on active duty.
I will not tell you I'm sorry for your loss, I hated when people said that to me.
what I do want to tell you is to continue to exude the strength she gave you.
Grief is not something you can get over, but I promise you, "Baby Boy," it will get better.

Shermar, I have been where you are. I lost both of my parents. The only thing that will help you make it through is prayer to God up above. The days will be hard, BUT the grace of God and His infinite love will help you get over the hump. Pray daily in and out and ask for God to give you the strength that you need and He will. May God bless and keep you through this most difficult time. You are NOT alone as you said in your video, God is ever with you!!!

Shelmar

You can only have one mother
Patient kind and true;
No other friend in all the world,
Will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you,
To mother you will return,
For all her loving kindness,
She asks nothing in return.
As you look upon her picture,
Sweet memories you recall,
Of a face so full of sunshine,
And a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message,
To Shelmar's dear mother up above;
Tell her how he miss her,
And give her all of his love.
Amen

So very sorry for your valley experience at this time. God is still great, good and gracious. It was always my delight to see you and the care you gave your mother. The songwriter penned in a song, " may the work I've done speak for me". Being the best mother she could be to you and have you acknowledge her in every step/stage of your adult life especially assure she has done what God assigned her to do on earth. Now she is enjoying her true citizenship and the ability to come to you in spirit and dreams of comfort.She is still accessible to you alone. We are praying for you the more since my mother 84, my daughter 36 and me 69 and Traeveon because we pray.

Dear Shamar,

I am sending my heartfelt sympathy to you on the loss of your Mom.
We were classmates in the Simmons MBA program way back in the late 90's. I recall the pride in her voice and the smile on her face when she spoke of you, flashed your head shot and told the story of your road to the Young and the Restless.

I know your heart is filled with memories of her and times you shared that will forever keep her close to you heart.

Sincerely, Aggie MacLean

I did not personally know Ms. Marilyn. I only got to know her through the wonderful posts/pictures of her beloved son, Shemar Moore. He loved and cherished his Mom. Not too many men will continually give praise of their mom. Shemar had no problem allowing us to witness the love between Ms. Marilyn and he. He always made sure to let us know she raised him to be the man he is today. When I saw Shemar's video, I cried as if I knew Ms. Marilyn myself. In one aspect, yes, but through him. Condolences to Ms. Marilyn's entire family, but especially to Shemar. I can't say enough how sorry I am to hear of the passing of your mom. Wish I could give you a hug and just say stay strong. She was and still will be so proud of you, Shemar. May GOD send his comforting angels over you during your time of grief.

I remember that Marilyn and Shemar were each others hero. She was so proud of him. She was such a strong loving women who always looked for the good in others. I will always remember her in my water aerobics class doing arm exercises and complaining the entire time, but telling me not to stop because she really needed them.

I will miss you my friend.
