    "He was the best storyteller I've ever heard. He was a great friend. I did a lot of gigs with him, but after every gig, we would all go to his room just to watch him tell a story. I can't pretend like I didn't know he was sick, but I thought that the way he handled himself and the way he laughed, that he would be all right. Charlie Murphy has such an indomitable will that you believe what he told you rather than what your eyes told you. I am sad that he's gone, but I'm also happy that I got a chance to know him. He was a great comic and a man's man. ... He rushed home to be with his family after every gig. He did comedy his way, and he died with gigs on the books. That's all you can ever say. All right, I love you, Charlie."
