“The hardest day of my life”: “Full House” colleagues carry Bob Saget to his grave
A few days after his death, Bob Saget was buried in his adopted home of Los Angeles. His colleagues from the series hit “Full House” also mourned. And even carried the coffin.
In the series “Full House” they come together to cope with the loss of a loved one. Five days after his surprising death at the age of only 65, leading actor Bob Saget’s remaining colleagues had to say goodbye. The funeral in Los Angeles visibly took her away.
“It’s going to be one of the hardest days of my life,” serial brother-in-law and friend John Stamos wrote on Twitter. “God, grant me the serenity to endure the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to discern.” Stamos and Dave Coulier, who played Saget’s character Danny Tanner’s best friend on the show, paid their last respects to their friend and colleague by burying him alongside family members and other friends, including singer John Mayer.
The funeral at Mount Sinai Cemetery shows how loved the comedian was, who was found dead in his Orlando hotel room on Sunday. In addition to his wife Kelly Rizzo and his three daughters, almost his entire series family came to say goodbye to Saget. In addition to Stamos and Coulier, his series daughters Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and the twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Stamos series wife Lori Loughlin also appeared. Among the 300 guests were other celebrities such as presenter Jimmy Kimmel and comedians Dave Chappell and Kathie Griffin.
It was a hard farewell for Saget’s series family. Stamos seems to be taking his friend’s death particularly hard. Pictures show him devastated, next to the hearse he and singer John Mayer looked for support in a tearful embrace.
Bob Saget died alone in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando on Sunday, under circumstances that have not yet been clarified. He had performed the night before and was perceived by the audience and hotel staff as healthy and in a good mood. The death is still under investigation. The police have already ruled out evidence of drug use or a crime.
