Comedian Charlie Murphy, brother to Eddie Murphy, lost his wife to cancer this Sunday after she died in her sleep. His wife Tisha Taylor-Murphy has been battling cancer for the past two years. Having lost one of my family members to cancer during the holiday season, I can relate to what a terrible loss this is. You grieve no matter what time of year a loved one dies, but this must be especially hard on the Murphy family, knowing Tisha isn’t there to celebrate with them. Tisha leaves behind her daughter Eva, son Xavier and Charlie’s son from a previous marriage.
