Bob Saget had a way with words.
“Full House” star Andrea Barber took to her Instagram account to honor her former colleague on January 10. “Bob could never resist an opportunity to make a speech. He was so gifted at knowing exactly how to articulate the moment and feelings,” she remembered fondly in the sentimental post along with a clip of Saget making an impassioned speech. “This speech which he made at our season 5 first table read so perfectly encapsulates Bob. It’s full of so much laughter, love, and heart,” she continued. “I miss him so much. I wish he were here to say the perfect speech to heal our hearts with love and laughter.”
In the clip, Saget can be heard making the crowd laugh and cry simultaneously. “I only had one kid when the show started and I didn’t like her,” Saget teased before taking on a more serious tone. “[Full House] is a show that is so loved all over the whole world and will always be. It’s a piece of television history and what you guys did with ‘Fuller’ [House] is amazing,” he declared. “You guys are so amazing to have done this and I couldn’t be prouder if I was your own dad. And I love you and here is to a wonderful, beautiful flourish to a long annuity of things that are gonna run forever.” We’re not crying… you’re crying. RIP Bob Saget.
