Bob Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo shared an emotional tribute to her late husband after he was laid to rest, remembering how he “never missed an opportunity” to tell someone that he loved them.
“Bob was a force. I’m sure every one of you out there, whether you knew him or not, was in awe of the enormous outpouring of love and tribute for this special man. It was like nothing anyone has ever seen,” Rizzo, 47, wrote on Instagram.
Rizzo, who wed the “Full House” star in 2018, said that she was grateful for their years of relationship.
“After much reflection this week, I’m trying, really trying, to not think I was robbed of time. But instead to think: How lucky was I that I got to be the one to be married to THE MOST INCREDIBLE MAN ON EARTH,” she wrote.
“I was the one who got to go on this crazy ride with him and be in his life these last 6 years. We had that time to make each other the happiest we’d ever been and change each other’s lives forever. I got to be the one to love him and cherish him. He deserves all the love. Every ounce of it. Because that’s how amazing Bob was. He was love. If you were in his life you KNEW he loved you. He never missed an opportunity to tell you,” she continued.
Saget, 65. was found dead in a hotel room last weekend in Orlando, Florida. His exact cause of death is still unknown.
More than 100 mourners, including his “Full House” cast stars Dave Coulier and John Stamos, paid their respects to the comedian at a funeral service Friday in Los Angeles.
