Bob Saget mourned by the cast of “Full House”, the comedians at the funeral

Bob Saget was mourned Friday at a funeral service in Los Angeles attended by his Full house costars and many other Hollywood celebrities.

According to TMZ, hundreds of people gathered at Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills to honor the late comedian, who died suddenly on Jan. 9 at the age of 65.

Full house actresses Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played Saget’s daughters in the long-running beloved sitcom, were all in attendance, while co-stars John Stamos and Dave Coulier served pallbearers during the ceremony.

“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man,” the Olsen twins said in a statement to rolling stone after Saget’s death. “We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us, but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us with as much grace as he always has. We are thinking of his daughters, his wife and his family and send our condolences to him.

“I’m broken. I’m gutted. I’m in complete and utter shock,” Stamos wrote on Twitter Sunday. “I will never have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.

Other guests at Saget’s funeral included John Mayer, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock, Seth Green, Norman Lear, Jeff Ross and Judd Apatow, according to TMZ.

While Saget’s healthy stints as widower Danny Tanner on Full house and the host of America’s Funniest Home Videos made him a household name, it was ultimately Saget’s penchant for raunchy, bawdy humor that endeared him to a generation of comics – including Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson.

“Bob Saget was one of the nicest men on the planet,” Davidson wrote in a letter posted on social media. “When I was younger and on many occasions throughout our friendship, he helped me through difficult mental health issues.”

Saget was found unconscious in his hotel room Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes. Authorities pronounced him dead at the scene. The incident is still under investigation, but officials say there is no evidence that drug use or foul play contributed to Saget’s death.
