Stamos, a friend of many years, described himself as “broken” as he took to Twitter with a touching tribute.

“I am broken. I am gutted.  I am in complete and utter shock.  I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby,” he wrote.

Pete Davidson is another person who has come out about the heartbreaking passing of the tremendous actor, friend, father, and husband.

The American comedian, actor, and screenwriter has, in the past, opened up about the state of his mental health, saying that he was “in and out,” of inpatient facilities, as per Self, since he was just a nine-year-old boy.

And with everything Davidson has been through, he always had someone he could count on.

The late Bob Saget, who, as per TMZ, he described as: “One of the nicest men on the planet.”

“When I was younger and several times throughout our friendship he helped me get through some rough mental health stuff,” the twenty-eight-year-old Davidson said.

“He stayed on the phone with my mom for hours trying to help in anyway he can — connecting us with doctors and new things we can try. He would check in on me and make sure I was okay,” he continued.

Finishing by saying: “I love you Bob. It was an honor to know you.  Thank you for your kindness and friendship. My condolences to the family.”

But, as a lot of people pay tribute to the beloved star…

Others reflect on what they could have done before he passed away.

Including the likes of Dave Chapelle…

Chapelle recently said that he wished he’d replied to Bob Saget’s final text message.

Chapelle and Saget were very close, and they both supported each other through a lot, including every time Saget would hold fundraisers for scleroderma.

Performing at the Peppermint Club in Weho, Chapelle talked sentimentally for a moment.

Saying that you do not know what life can hold for you or other people.

Talking to his audience about laying his “comrad” down to rest, he said he didn’t see it “coming.”

“Man he just texted me and I saw the text yesterday and I never texted him back,” he began expressing his regret, as per TMZ.

“I was just busy. Yeah it happens

“I’m just saying this to remind you that these moments are precious and when I come out at night I’m not just hanging out, I’m making memories,” he continued.

“S**t when I go out at night, I’m making history,” he finished before talking about some criticism he received in 1 of his Netflix specials.


And honestly, everyone should take on his advice. Never leave a text unread, always tell a person you love them, and cherish every single memory.

Our thoughts are with Saget’s family and friends during this difficult time.
