The Full House Cast Comes Together To Mourn Bob Saget

Actor and comedian Bob Saget unexpectedly died at the age of 65 on January 9. Most known for his portrayal of Danny Tanner on "Full House" and as host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," Saget was in the midst of a comedy tour in Florida when he was found unresponsive in his Orlando hotel room (via The New York Times).

Outpourings of sympathy and sadness were posted on social media from around the world following the news of his death. Some of the most touching tributes have been from his fellow "Full House" cast members. Dave Coulier, who played his best friend Joey Gladstone on the show, tweeted, "My heart is broken. I love you, Bob. Your forever brother, Dave."

John Stamos, who played Tanner's brother-in-law Jesse Katsopolis on the show, also tweeted, "I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby." One of his TV daughters, DJ Tanner, played by Candace Cameron Bure posted on Instagram, "I love you sooooo much. I don't want to say goodbye. 35 years wasn't long enough."

Bog Saget's TV family became a real family

After posting individually, the entire "Full House" came together to release a joint statement about Bob Saget's death. The statement was shared on many of the "Full House" stars' Instagram profiles with the same photo and caption that read, "Thirty-five years ago, we came together as a TV family, but we became a real family. And now we grieve as a family. Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob. He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us. Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob's honor, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob." 

The statement was signed by John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Lori Loughlin, Andrea Barber, Scott Weinger, and Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen along with the show's creator Jeff Franklin. The comments on the post show that Saget and the "Full House" family meant a lot to so many people. One fan wrote, "You all have given the world something no one else ever has. An unconditional loving and accepting family to feel we are TRULY part of. Please believe me when I say, the world is grieving with you all." While another fan wrote, "may he rest easy! ... watching full house in his memory."
