“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,” he captioned a series of videos. “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.”
“It’s not a game. It’s not a joke. I’m hurting real bad. I’ve been offline for some weeks, now. I’ve had to keep a secret out of respect,” Moore said in one of the videos. “Ten days ago on February 8, 2020, my mother, Marylin Joan Wilson-Moore passed away. Trust me. I know.”
