John Stamos Reveals Final Text From Bob Saget in Upcoming Netflix Tribute Special

by Shelby Scott

Nearly half a year has passed since Full House icon Bob Saget passed away. However, as grief has no timeline, many of his family and close friends continue to mourn his death. Now, an upcoming Netflix tribute aims to cast light on Bob Saget one final time. And in it, we can expect an appearance from the late actor and comedian’s longtime costar, John Stamos. In tributing the Danny Tanner actor, Stamos reveals the final text he received from his friend, colleague, and onscreen brother-in-law.

According to PEOPLE, the Bob Saget tribute, entitled “Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute,” will feature a slew of the actor’s family and friends. However, while the 65-year-old seemed to establish lasting friendships wherever he went, very few were as meaningful as that with his Full House costar.

During a preview for “The Bob Saget Tribute,” Stamos said, “I wanna read my last text from Bob. He said, ‘I love you so much. I will say that God gave me the brother that I wanted.”

John Stamos, hardly straying from his beloved character Jesse Katsopolis, more humorously responded, “Well, you have a lot of God-given brothers, but I’m first right?”

The Uncle Jesse actor continued, “[Saget] said, ‘[John] Mayer is an amazing friend, but he’s more fair-weather. You’re always there, so you’re number one.'”

At that, the audience erupted into laughter. Other comedians shared loving, though equally hilarious, tributes and stories about the longtime TV star.
