“I don’t know what to say Broken heart. I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.”

“This one hurts. He had the biggest heart of anyone in Hollywood. He gave the biggest hugs. I am gutted that I will never be able to hug him again. Bob ended every text, every interaction with “Love you.” Didn’t matter how long or short we’d been apart. He loved so deeply and so fiercely. And he never hesitated to tell you just how much you meant to him. This is the greatest lesson I learned from Bob Saget – don’t hesitate to tell people you love them. I feel at peace knowing that Bob knew exactly how much I adore him.
Rest well, my dear friend. I have no doubt you are making everyone in Heaven laugh until their cheeks hurt, just as you did here on Earth.”
” His heart was abundantly full of love and kindness for others. Determined to make everyone smile and laugh and love a little more. He was truly the best.
Thank you for all the kind words of love and inspiration Bob You will be infinitely missed by all, forever. Rest in peace, love… and laughter…”

“An amazingly kind and generous man left us today. Will miss you a lot Bob. So so much…”
“Nov. 8 was the last day I saw Bob Saget. I was at the showing of my friend McKenna’s movie, Ghostbusters. It was a chance meeting. He will always be my Grandpa Danny. Bob was the true patriarch of Fuller House. He was a warm and loving man. I will miss him a lot. I’m literally in shock. “
“We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our friend and colleague, Bob Saget, who will always be a member of the ABC family. Whether playing a loving father on “Full House” or hosting the early years of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” with his signature wit and charm, Bob always knew how to connect with families through heart and humor. Our thoughts are with his family as we mourn the passing of such an incredibly gifted comedian and talent.”
“America’s Dad (Broken heart) RIP Bob Saget”
