Adam Sandler Pays Tribute to Charlie Murphy in Touching Interview

by at .  Updated at .

As we all know at this point, Charlie Murphy passed away earlier this week after battling leukemia.

He was only 57 years old.

And, as it turns out, he was really, really loved.

Celebrities far and wide took the time to pay tribute to the legendary late comedian, and all of them had a story about how funny and kind he was.

His death is obviously a huge loss to those that knew him -- and Adam Sandler is one of those suffering.

Adam went on Good Morning America yesterday to promote his latest Netflix movie, but he took time at the beginning of the interview to talk about Charlie.

And it really is just touching to see.

"Can I just say, Charlie Murphy ... loved him," he began. "My respect to his family and thinking of all of you."

"As a guy, he was the sweetest guy to see and talk to, and we're all going to miss him very much. It's great that you're talking about him."

Adam, who is clearly feeling emotional about the subject, said that while comedians share a close community, Charlie "just stood out."

"You got so happy seeing Charlie, anywhere you saw him," he said. "He was just a good person."
