JOHN Stamos and John Mayer were seen in a long, emotional hug at the funeral of co-star and friend Bob Saget.
The actor/comedian died unexpectedly in Orlando at the age of 65.
The duo – both longtime friends of Bob – were photographed embracing as they stood behind an open hearse that contained the coffin of the “Full House” protagonist.
Both faces were covered with black masks.
They were dressed in dark suits and seemed to be hugging for a while.
Both the 58-year-old actor and the musician were seen spending time in the house that Bob shared with wife Kelly Rizzo before his death.
This couple, like others who arrived after his death, looked stoic.
Near the house, Stamos was met by 42-year-old Kelly, who hugged him.
During their first meeting, he was wearing a mask, but was seen without it in his car and looked devastated.
Stamos tweeted funeral morning: “Today is going to be the hardest day of my life…”
Many of Bob’s colleagues and friends attended Friday’s funeral, which was held at the Mount Sinai Memorial Parks in the morgues of the Tanakh Chapel.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jeffrey Ross, Mike Binder, Candice Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Lori Laughlin were among the familiar faces seen in the crowd.
Also in attendance were Judd Apatow, Marc Maron, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock and Seth Green.
Mayer helped carry the coffin during the service.
A source at the scene said Kelly gave a moving speech that drew laughter as she called Bob “Batman” and called her late husband her hero.
She said she was honored to be his wife, adding that he was her biggest critic in the kitchen and biggest supporter in general, according to an insider.
The source added: “She also joked about how he didn’t exactly know what she did for a living, she was very collected and made the mourners laugh, but ended up crying when she expressed her love for Bob.”
Paul Pressler, former president of Walt Disney Attractions, also spoke at the funeral, according to the source.
He called the America’s Funniest Home Video host “brother” in a swear-filled speech in which he explained everything Bob had taught him over the years.
Bob’s daughters, whom he shared with ex-wife Sherry Kramer, also took to the podium to give the eulogy.
Prior to the funeral, many mourners who attended the funeral were seen at Kelly and Bob’s home in Brentwood, Los Angeles.
The Sheriff’s Department and Fire Department responded to a call from Bob’s Orlando hotel around 4:00 pm on January 9 after hotel staff found Bob unresponsive in the room.
He was pronounced dead at the scene and is believed to have died of a heart attack.
Bob’s death was confirmed Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
“Earlier today, MPs were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes about an inactive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.
They added: “The man was identified as Robert Saget and was pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives found no evidence of foul play or drug use in this case.”
Bob’s family later released a statement Us weekly saying, “We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob has passed away today.
“He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and laughing, bringing people from all walks of life together.”
Bob and Kelly got married in 2018.
He had twins Aubrey and Lara Melanie and a daughter Jennifer Belle with his first wife Sherry, who was his high school sweetheart.
Bob was traveling the country when he died.
He was supposed to return home on Sunday morning. His family contacted the hotel after several unsuccessful attempts to contact him.
