What was the last tip?
Just, I love you so much and I can’t wait to see you tomorrow.
Bob Saggett’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, gets emotional recalling their last conversation.
He was just on his way home or back to his hotel and just was telling me what it was a wonderful show he had and how it was so amazing and he was happy and just loving what he did. It made him so happy to just bring laughter to people.
The late comedian’s wife sits down with Good Morning America and opens up about her husband, who was found unresponsive in a hotel room in Orlando, Florida, and pronounced dead on January 9, just hours after he finished a stand-up show outside of Jacksonville. He was 65 years old.
He just wanted to spread love and laughter and he did it so amazing and I’m just so proud of him because he truly brought people together.
That’s one of the reasons I’m really happy. So to be able to just entertain and make people laugh and do something just for sheer joy.
He had the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever known. He put everybody first. If you had a problem, he was the first person that was going to take care of it and help you, and he was just the scariest and kind and thoughtful person.
In the wake of Bob’s death, the 42-year old says she’s been moved by the love and support she has received from his Full House costars.
Every single one of them has been so kind and supportive and they’ve been there every step of the way, and they’ve just assured me that they’ll be there for me, and I know that would make Bob very happy.
It’s emotional. We love each other and we’ve been friends all these years and we’ve been there for each other. It makes me so happy.
A Memorial service was held for Bob in Los Angeles last Friday, and of course, the Full House cast was there, including John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lori Loughlin, and Candace Cameron Beret, among others.
It’s an extended family. We’ve always loved each other, and that’s what I think made the show a success as it was in between the lines, that stuff that happens when it’s real between people.
In a separate interview with Hoda Cockpit on the Today show, Kelly reveals that she spoke at the service.
As painful as it was beautiful to be surrounded by so many people who loved him and who loved each other. I can’t even verbalize the level of support.
The food and travel blogger also tells a touching story about the kind of guy Bob was, proving just how special their marriage was.
When he was away, he would go to bed at two and then wake up at four so he could be on the 06:00 a.m. The flight we valued every single second that we had together. There was nothing left on set and nothing left on the table. So those are things that I’m just trying to hold on to.
