Bob Saget and John Stamos were rumored to be close, having linked up as co-stars on Full house when he debuted in 1987. Unsurprisingly, Stamos was among a small number of family and friends expected to attend a private memorial service for Saget on Friday in Los Angeles.
“Today will be the hardest day of my life”, Stamos wrote on social networks. Then he quoted the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
According to multiple reports, the service, scheduled for Mt. Sinai Memorial Park, was to include a funeral. A larger memorial will follow, although details have not been finalized.
“I heard it was going to be very small,” Saget’s friend Dr. Jon LaPook said. HEY. “I can imagine honoring Bob’s memory is going to be a lot of humor. Because for him, humor has, he says, saved his family.”
Stamos and many others continued to pay their respects to Saget after he was found unconscious in an Orlando hotel room on January 9, hours after a stand-up concert. Officials said the 65-year-old died in his sleep and there was no drug use or foul play, but they are still determining exactly what happened .
Singer John Mayer and comedian Jeff Ross, both close friends of Saget, shared some of their memories of him Thursday as they drove home from Los Angeles International Airport. (The late actor had been there last week, before his trip to Florida.)
“I have never known a human being on this earth who could give so much love, individually and completely, to so many people in a way that made everyone feel like a main character in their life and that they were a main character in his life,” Mayer said.
Mayer and Ross said they visited Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, over the past few days and met with members of the Full house the cast does the same.
