Lori Loughlin Issues A Rare Public Statement About Bob Saget’s Death

The world is still reeling after comedic actor Bob Saget was found dead in a Florida hotel room on Sunday at the age of 65. Now, his former “Full House” costar Lori Loughlin is breaking her silence to pay tribute to him.

Loughlin Breaks Her Silence 

“Words cannot begin to express how devastated I am. Bob was more than my friend, he was my family,” Loughlin told People Magazine. “I will miss his kind heart and quick wit. Thank you for a lifetime of wonderful memories and laughter. I love you Bobby.”

Saget’s Loyal Friendship With Loughlin

Loughlin and Saget starred together on “Full House” from 1987 to 1995, and in recent years, they reprised their roles on the Netflix reboot “Fuller House.”

They became such good friends over the years that Saget even publicly stood by Loughlin during the infamous college admissions scandal that landed her in prison for two months at the end of 2020, becoming one of the few celebrities to vocally defend her. 

“There’s 30 years of love there,” Saget said in August of 2019. “More than that. So that’s all I got. I love her very much. And that’s it.”

Two months later, he elaborated further on this friendship with Loughlin by saying, “I love the people I love, and people go through life, and stuff happens … I love the people I love, and I have empathy for people that are in my life for 35 years,” he said. “I don’t cut people out.”

Watch Saget open up further about Loughlin nearly a year ago in the video below.

John Stamos Honors Saget

John Stamos, who starred as Uncle Jesse on “Full House,” also paid tribute to Saget by writing on Instagram, “I’m not ready to accept that he’s gone – I’m not going to say goodbye yet.”

“I’m going to imagine him out there, still on the road, doing what he loves with all his heart and humor,” Stamos continued. “He’s standing on stage, killing! Another two-hour set in front of a couple hundred of the luckiest people on the planet.”

“I’m just not ready to say goodbye yet,” he later added at the end of his post. “Maybe tomorrow. Maybe.”

While Saget’s death is still being investigated, law enforcement officials told TMZ that it appears that he died of a sudden medical event like a heart attack or a stroke. 

“At this time, there is no evidence of drug use or foul play,” Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany told CNN. “The cause and manner of death are pending further studies.”

Saget’s sudden and untimely death serves as a reminder of how fleeting life is. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family during this difficult time.

His unique perspective as a gay conservative fuels him to challenge celebrity views and those who think they have a right to tell anyone how to think or vote. James proudly wields his minority point of view to combat identity politics and cut through his typecast. Fun fact: James’ guilty pleasure is the British royal family.
