Bob Saget's family and friends are still mourning his death following the actor's sudden passing on January 9. The "Full House" star was found dead in his Orlando hotel room by security after family members asked the hotel to do a wellness check (via Yahoo). According to TMZ, Saget was found lying face up in his bed with his left arm across his chest and his right arm at his side. Although the official cause of death won't be known for weeks, it is thought that a stroke or heart attack may be to blame.

One day after Saget's death, his wife Kelly Rizzo took to social media to make an emotional statement, per People. "My whole heart. Bob was my absolute everything," she wrote. "I am so completely shattered and in disbelief. I am so deeply touched by the outpouring of love and tribute from our friends, family, his fans and his peers."

She continued, "When the time is right and when this news is not as raw, I look forward to sharing more of Bob with the world. Sharing how much he meant to me, all of those around him, and how much all of his fans and friends meant to him as well. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time."

This week, Rizzo opted to speak out about her late husband, just days after his funeral.
