Following the devastating news that Bob Saget unexpectedly passed away at the age of 65, Jodie Sweetin took to her Instagram to pay tribute to her former Full House co-star.

In the sweet post, the Full House star states there aren’t enough words to describe how she is feeling nor are they big enough to capture even “a slice” of who Saget really was. “One thing I do know is that we never missed a chance to tell each other, ‘I love you.’ Every time we talked, there were at least 3 or 4 exchanged at the end of a conversation, whether it was text, phone call, or in person. And he usually had to have the last word, ‘I love you more…’”

Sweetin also states that there are many songs that she hears and thinks of her Full House co-star. She explains that Saget introduced her to some of her favorite music. He also discussed comedy bits with her as well as shared comedy history. “The hundreds of inside jokes we all had. The kind that only a family knows and that nobody else will ever understand or think is funny.”

Jodie Sweetin Opens Up About the Memories She Has of Her ‘Full House’ Dad Bob Saget

Also in her post, Sweetin goes on to recall the memories she cherishes with Saget and the rest of the Full House cast. This includes memories of her 13th birthday party when Saget and Dave Coulier danced together. She also remembers spending weekends at Saget’s home with his three daughters. “The time I out ‘Bob’d’ Bob, with some joke I told. Him telling me he was proud of me. These are just a few of the special memories I hold in my heart and that keep playing on the carousel of memories in my mind.”

Sweetin then declares that her Full House castmate was a wonderful human being. One that could drive anyone nuts sometimes and he knew it. But he was also so genuine. “He was a genuinely kind spirit who made it through so much in his life, and was most happy when he was helping others. Whether it was personally or through SO many of his different avenues of philanthropy. He gave great hugs too.”

Sweetin claims that she would always say that Saget was the best TV dad ever because he was to her. “I’ll miss you, Bob. I’ll make sure and tell an inappropriate joke at your funeral. In your honor. I know you would’ve wanted that. But you were supposed to be here long… How Rude.”

As previously reported, Bob Saget reportedly passed away on January 9, 2022. He was found at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. He was in Orlando as part of his stand-up comedy tour. His last performance was in Jacksonville at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. The cause of death has not been revealed.
