Kelly Rizzo is paying tribute to her loving husband, Bob Saget.
Following the Full House student's death on January 9, his wife shared a statement about the devastating loss.
"All my heart. Bob was absolutely my everything," she said in a statement to E! News on January 10. "I am so completely devastated and incredulous. I am so deeply moved by the outpouring of love and tribute from our friends, family, their fans and their peers."
Rizzo, 42, said she plans to offer more words about her late husband in the future.
"When the time is right and when this news is not so stark, I look forward to sharing more of Bob with the world," shared the blogger and television host. "Share how much he meant to me, everyone around him, and how much all his fans and friends meant to him as well. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time."
He also commented on John Mayer's Instagram tribute to Saget. The musician wrote: "I love you Bob. I will never forget you. I will visit you often in my memories and hope I can see you in my dreams. I will tell my children about you. I am taking you with me forever." And Rizzo replied from her account of her blog Eat Travel Rock: "I have no words to express how much I loved you. Thank you, dear friend."
Florida authorities confirmed the comedian's death in a statement on Twitter. Saget had been on his stand-up tour at the time of his passing. "Earlier today, officers were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room," the Orange County Sheriff's Office tweeted on January 9. "The man was identified as Robert Saget and pronounced deceased. At the scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case."
In October, three months before his death, Saget and Rizzo celebrated their third wedding anniversary. "Happy 3 year anniversary! Time flies with you!" Rizzo wrote on Instagram at the time. "Doesn't sit a day for 2 years and 10 months. I love you @bobsaget, thank you for being the most wonderful husband!"
Saget first announced his marriage to Rizzo on social media in October 2018, sharing a photo of the couple's special day. "Okay, so we went and did it," he told fans on Instagram. "And damn, we are happy."
Rizzo also shared the exciting news on his social media page at the time. "@bobsaget and I dressed up as grooms for Halloween," he wrote alongside a photo from the wedding, which took place in Santa Monica, California. "Seriously, the best day of my life."
Before his relationship with Rizzo, Saget was married to Sherri Kramer from 1982 to 1997. The former couple share three children: Aubrey Saget, Jennifer Belle Saget, and Lara Melanie Saget.
The family also released a statement following the actor's death over the weekend. "We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today," the message began. "He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter."
"While we ask for privacy at this time," the statement concluded, "we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought into the world."
