Family members and friends remembered Bob Saget at a private funeral Friday at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

According to reports, his Full house co-stars John Stamos, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Lori Loughlin and Dave Coulier were there, as were comedians Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Jimmy Kimmel, Kathy Griffin and Jeff Ross. In total, about 300 people attended the service.

Rabbi Steven Carr Reuben presided. He said “how heartbroken everyone in the world is [about Saget’s death],” he said Additional. “One of the most amazing things about Bob is the more you read people’s comments, everyone in the world, all of his famous friends, they’re all saying the same thing…He was the sweetest, kindest, warmest, most loving guy, and always there for everyone.”

In fact, Stamos wrote ahead of the memorial service on social media that he expected it to be difficult. “Today will be the hardest day of my life,” he wrote, then added the Serenity Prayer.

Many other tributes have poured in since the comedian’s death on January 9 at age 65.

Reuben said the name of Saget’s podcast, Bob Saget is there for you, says it all when it comes to how the comedian treated his friends and family.

“It was Bob Saget, he was there for you,” Reuben said. “No matter who you were, how he knew you, he showed up for whatever he was asked to do. He was there, caring, loving, supporting…he was just one of those mensches, we like to say in Hebrew, one of those gentle and loving souls.”

The rabbi explained that Saget had repeatedly said that he turned to humor to “deal with the tragedies of life”.

As Reuben saw, the actor helped others do the same.

“Bob knew one of the secrets of life, which is that comedians are actually healers, and that was part of his job…and what he said was, ‘My job is to help heal the world and bringing people together with my humor.'”
