Several hours after news surfaced of Charlie Murphy’s tragic passing, his younger brother, Eddie Murphy, spoke out.

The family released a statement late Wednesday that read:

“Our hearts are heavy with the loss today of our son, brother, father, uncle and friend Charlie. Charlie filled our family with love and laughter and there won’t be a day that goes by that his presence will not be missed. Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and prayers. We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us.”

Charlie died on Wednesday morning following what appears to be a very private battle with leukemia. He died in a hospital in New York City. According to reports, the family was shocked by the news because they thought he was on the verge of getting better.

The comedian, however, was well enough to post one last and final tweet before he passed. The message, that will literally give you chills, read: “One to Sleep On: Release the past to rest as deeply as possible.”

Just one day prior, the 57-year-old wrote: “Rise & Grind: Wake up with the rising sun and seize the day!”

RIP, Charlie.
