Five days after comedian and actor Bob Saget died, friends and family gathered for a private memorial service in Los Angeles to pay their last respects to the ‘Full House’ star, according to People, TMZ and Daily Mail.
Outlets released photos from the Friday service, which showed Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, and “Full House” stars, including John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweeten, and Mary- Kate and Ashley Olsen arrive dressed in black. Dave chappelle, Jimmy Kimmel, John Mayer and Chris Rock were also present.
Before the memorial, Stamos called it “the hardest day of my life.”
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference,” Stamos tweeted.
Chappelle referenced the memorial while filming in Los Angeles on Thursday. “Tomorrow I’m going to rest my comrade,” he said during a performance at the Peppermint Club, according to TMZ and People. He also shared that he regretted not texting Saget before his friend died.
“He just texted me, and I saw the text yesterday and never got back to him because I was just busy,” Chappelle said onstage. “I’m just saying this to remind you that these moments are precious.”
Bure posted a photo of herself and Saget on Friday. The two are seen hugging at what appears to be Bure’s wedding.
“Hug like Bob ♥️” Bure captioned the post. “I love you my sweet sweet daddy Bobby.”
Saget, who was best known for his role as widowed father Danny Tanner on the ABC Family sitcom and as the original host of the network’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” was found unresponsive in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, around 4 p.m. Sunday, police said He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office told USA TODAY in a statement that detectives found “no signs of foul play or drug use.” The medical examiner’s office will ultimately determine the cause and circumstances of death, saying Monday an autopsy was performed.
Further studies and investigations “could take up to 10 to 12 weeks,” Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany said in a statement. “Our condolences go out to Mr. Saget’s loved ones at this difficult time.”

The comedian had traveled across the country with the “I Don’t Do Negative” tour and played a two-hour set in Jacksonville, Fla., on Saturday.
Her last Instagram post on Saturday night was hopeful.
“Loved the show tonight in Jacksonville,” Saget wrote. “A very grateful and fun audience. I didn’t know I did a two hour set tonight.
He added, “I’m back in acting like I was when I was 26. I guess I’m finding my new voice and loving every bit of it.”
Along with his wife Rizzo, Saget is survived by three daughters from his first marriage to Sherri Kramer – Aubrey Saget, Lara Melanie Saget and Jennifer Belle Saget.
