“Full House” star John Stamos took to Twitter to mourn the passing of his co-star Bob Saget on Sunday.

The 58-year-old star said he was “broken” and “gutted” over the loss of his longtime friend. He went on to say he’d never have a friend like Saget again and that he loved the man so much.

Stamos played Uncle Jesse Katsopolis in the ABC show, coming to help Saget’s Danny Tanner widower character take care of three girls in a small San Francisco house. The show went five seasons and 75 episodes.

The men also had reoccurring roles in the sequel show on Netflix called “Fuller House.”

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office has released few details about Saget’s death in Orlando, Fla. Officials have said no drugs were involved in discovering Saget’s body in a Ritz-Carlton hotel room.

According to the U.S. Sun, Bob Saget’s net worth hovered around $50 million at the time of his death.

Saget played a wholesome, beloved dad on the show for eight years. He took that clean-cut reputation to another ABC show, “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”

After that, Bob Saget launched a second career as a raunchy stand-up comedian.

But the 65-year-old Saget stayed close with his friends and family from the show, including Stamos. Over the years, the two men teamed up with co-star Dave Coulier to do some fun things. They appeared in several fun videos on social media together and had a birthday post for Coulier back in September. Other videos showed the men pranking each other. 

One was a “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” skit called “Full House Nights. The trio plays three adult detectives who, according to Coulier, “may have seen too much.”

Stamos, Saget Shared Touching Messages About Each Other

Call it a bromance, but the two men stayed a big part of each other’s lives after the “Full House” show ran its course. They were so close the men took their wives on double dates in 2019.

PageSix recorded Bob Saget wishing Stamos a happy birthday on Instagram last year. He said the day was “special” and called Stamos his brother.

“To say we are like brothers is an understatement. We have been through so much together for 35 years,” Stamos said.

According to The List, Stamos got “especially sentimental” when posting wedding photos from Saget’s wedding to his second wife in 2018.

Stamos also added a heartwarming message then. 

“Sometimes in life, the least likely person that you’d think would turn out to be your lifelong friend, someone who is there for you through the ups and downs and sideways – a brother and a confidant,” Stamos wrote about Saget.
