Bob Saget’s family, friends, and fans have been mourning the comedian ever since his unexpected death at age 65. One of his Full House quotes stands out as particularly meaningful after he died. Here’s the quote and how it reflects what Saget’s loved ones are going through. 

Bob Saget’s ‘Full House’ quote means even more after his death

One of Bob Saget’s most famous roles was playing Danny Tanner on Full House. In season 1 of the hit 90s sitcom, Saget’s character comforted Uncle Jesse, played by John Stamos, after the death of his sister. The sister was Danny Tanner’s wife, so he could relate to Uncle Jesse’s pain and impart some words of wisdom. 

“When’s it gonna stop hurting, man?” Uncle Jessie asked sadly. “I keep thinking the pain’s gonna go away, but it doesn’t. When I see pictures of her, I think of her, I get this feeling, this … ”

“I know that feeling, Jesse, and I don’t think it completely goes away,” Danny said. “Sometimes it’s easier, but on days like these, it’s real hard. But you don’t have to go through this alone.”

“I’m missing her, man. It’s hard for me to talk about it,” Uncle Jesse said tearfully.

“Talking about it, that’s what helps me,” Danny said. “Talking about the memories, that’s what keeps her in your heart.”

Bob Saget’s Daughter Breaks Silence After ‘Full House’ Star’s Death

The comedian’s family reminded fans of his lessons when revealing his cause of death

Bob Saget’s family reminded fans of the lessons he had taught them when they revealed his cause of death after a month-long investigation. 

On Feb. 9, the Saget family, including his wife Kelly Rizzo and his three children, released a statement to People. “The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma,” they shared. “They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.”

Saget’s family urged fans to remember what the comedian taught them. “As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.”
