*Marlon Wayans took to social media to honor his late mother, Elvira, on what would’ve been her 82nd birthday.

“You will always be my glue. Miss you,” he captioned a photo of the two of them together. 

Elvira passed away a couple of weeks ago, TMZ reported.

The comedian shares the same birthday as his mom. He took to Instagram on Thursday and posted two tributes to her, writing, “Losing you shattered me into 1000 pieces I’m putting myself back together piece by piece.”

“Today i celebrate for the both of. In the midst of this hurt… i just love you ma. #missyou.”

He added, “i accomplished so much, made you so proud… but now i got angel to lift me. #loveofmylife #bdaygotl s— ma, i gave you all my bdays… wth do i do now ? millions of weetahs sugtas and homies #myfirstmylastmyeverything rest well.”

Wayans then shared a throwback picture of himself as a baby with his mother, with the caption: “Everytime i seen this woman i smiled.”

“I see her in every woman… the greatness you all behold. The joy you can always share. The sweetness and affection we all possess but we’re to damaged to just let go. Thank u ma for gifting me pure love. You will always be my first love happy bday woman. Baby boy misses you,” he wrote.

Elvira was mother to 10 children — Marlon, Keenan, Damon, Shawn, Dwayne, Kim, Nadia, Elvira, Diedre and Vonnie — and all are producers, writers and performers in the entertainment industry. 

“I credit my mom a lot because although she had 10 children, we all had our time and space to be the baby,” Marlon said during 2004 interview with The Oprah Winfrey Show with his siblings. “She made us all feel loved.”
