Kelly Rizzo posted an emotional tribute to her husband Bob Saget after his death

On Jan. 9, Bob Saget was found dead in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida, after performing a two-hour stand-up comedy set. His funeral took place on Jan. 15. 

The same day as his burial, Bob Saget’s wife, Kelly Rizzo, broke her silence about his death by touching tribute to him on Instagram.

The 42-year-old posted a photo of Saget and herself smiling at the camera and captioned it, “My sweet husband. After much reflection this week, I’m trying, really trying, to not think I was robbed of time. But instead to think: How lucky was I that I got to be the one to be married to THE MOST INCREDIBLE MAN ON EARTH.”

Rizzo said, in a sentiment that many of his loved ones have reflected in their tributes to him, that Saget frequently told her how much he loved her. “I got to be the one to love him and cherish him,” she wrote. “He deserves all the love. Every ounce of it. Because that’s how amazing Bob was. He was love. If you were in his life you KNEW he loved you. He never missed an opportunity to tell you.”
