Full House stars honor Bob Saget on anniversary of his death: ‘Just not the same without you’

Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Dave Coulier paid tribute to their friend and castmate a year after his passing.

The members of the Tanner household are remembering TV patriarch Bob Saget on the first anniversary of his death.

Sweetin and Bure, who played Saget’s daughters on the beloved sitcom and the sequel series Fuller House, reflected on how much they miss him.

“I just wanted you to know, I’ve thought of you every day for the past year,” Sweetin wrote. “It’s just not the same without you with us, and I don’t think it ever will feel like that again. I wish you had been here over the last year… there’s so many moments you were supposed to be here for. So many times I thought of calling you and thinking, ‘What would Bob do in this moment?’ Mostly the answer to that is ‘make a joke about it’… so I do that. A lot.”

It’s “those moments when I hear you just over my shoulder, laughing the hardest,” she continued. “So many times, just in my own life this year, that I wished I could hear you were proud of me. But I hear it anyway.”

Sweetin recalled staring at a photo of Saget one evening before a comedy show.  “I stood there, in front of your picture, and thanked you,” she said. “In my mind, we silently chatted. I was nervous, your picture reminded me I didn’t have to be… that you were there. Always. For all of us.”

Bure said in her own homage that she recently stayed up for hours watching videos of her former TV dad, “videos I couldn’t watch a year ago because it hurt too much.” However, “last night they made me laugh,” she said. “They comforted me and warmed my heart. I watched them over and over and laughed so hard. I miss him so much and I’m grateful he was my friend for so many years. I love you, Bob.”

Coulier, who played Saget’s best friend on Full House, remembered his decades-long friendship with the actor, noting that he always brought out “the 5th grader in me.” Coulier wrote, “I met him when I was just an unknown, 18 year-old standup at a small club in Detroit. We became instant brothers. Sometimes, I still grab my phone, ready to share one of the hundreds of silly bits that we did together.”

He added, “At some point today, I’ll think about how much I miss him and I’ll shed some tears. Then I’ll hear Bob’s voice, and it’ll make me laugh. Enjoy the gifts of life while they’re still here with you. Tell those you love that you love them… and hug them like Bob Saget.”
