Kelly Rizzo paid tribute to her husband Bob Saget on the second anniversary of his death, keeping his memory alive with laughter and love. The beloved comedian and Full House star passed away on January 9, 2022, mere hours after delivering a triumphant standup performance. He was 65 years old.
Rizzo turned to Instagram to post a photo of Saget on stage, expressing her disbelief that two years have already gone by. “2 years. Wow,” she wrote alongside the photo. “Simultaneously feels like a week and an eternity. I chose this photo of Bob as not only was it the last photo he shared and one of the last texts he sent me, but it perfectly encapsulates how he would want all of us to remember him. With his guitar, on a stage, doing what he loved to do…making people laugh…making people happy.”
“I will forever be grateful that I got to share life with this extraordinary person for 6 years. What a blessing,” she continued. “And grateful I can look back on endless memories and photos and videos with smiles, laughter, and yes…still tears. It is such a gift I was able to know his complete and all encompassing love and heart.”
