BOB Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo wore the late star’s engagement ring on a necklace at his funeral following the comedian’s tragic death.
The funeral of the Full House star took place on Friday after his sudden death at the age of 65.
Bob’s private funeral was held in Los Angeles just five days after the actor was found dead in his Florida hotel room.
During the service, Kelly found a way to keep Bob close to her heart by wearing his wedding ring around her neck.
In photographs from the funeral, the 42-year-old woman was seen wearing a gold chain and her late husband’s engagement ring.
Kelly, who married Bob in 2018, attended the funeral along with her future husband’s close friends and former co-stars.
Among the familiar faces present were Bob’s Full House co-stars John Stamos, Candace Cameron, Jodi Sweetin, and Lori Loughlin.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played the famous Michelle Tanner in their favorite sitcom, also rarely appeared in public.
Comedian Mike Binder, singer John Mayer, comedian Jeffrey Ross, Judd Apatow, Marc Maron, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock and Seth Green were also among the dignitaries who attended the service.
According to the source, Kelly delivered a touching speech full of laughter as she called Bob “Batman” and called her late husband her hero during the service.
The Eat Travel Rock TV presenter also said she was honored to be Bob’s wife and that he was her biggest food critic but also her biggest supporter, the insider said.
“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 in tears when she expressed her love for Bob,” the source said.
Paul Pressler, former president of Walt Disney Attractions, also spoke at the service, and Bob’s daughters and ex-wife Sherry Kramer took to the podium to deliver a eulogy for their beloved father in the Jewish service.
Earlier that day on Friday, loved ones broke into the home that Bob and Kelly shared in Brentwood, resulting in his death.
The sheriff’s department and fire department responded to a comedian’s call at a hotel in Orlando around 4:00 p.m. Jan. 9 after hotel security found Bob in his room.
He was pronounced dead at the scene and is believed to have died of a heart attack.
The death of a star was confirmed Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
“Earlier today, MPs were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes about an unresponsive 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 shared a statement Us weekly, stating, “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 by performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter.”
Bob has twin daughters Aubrey and Lara Melanie, born in 1987, and a daughter, Jennifer Belle, born in 1992, by his first wife and high school girlfriend Sherry.
The former couple divorced in 1997.
At the time of his sudden death, Bob was touring the country, and his last concerts were in Florida.
On Saturday night he played a concert in Jacksonville and stayed there until Sunday morning.
HIS LAST DAYS
Following his death, a source told Kristen Bell Tattoos exclusively: “The previous day, Bob was in a great mood doing sold-out comedy shows in Florida.
“You can see from his Instagram posts after the show what a blast he got on stage and how excited he was to be back on the comedy tour.”
The insider then talked about how Kelly is “so grateful and touched by all the support, media tributes, fan responses and messages from close friends and family.”
The source added, “She is still numb as it happened less than 24 hours ago so she needs time to think it over and will speak up when she has time to grieve properly.
“It’s really devastating.”
