The duo spoke of Saget's love for friends and family, and stressed how much he cared for everyone around him.
John Mayer and Jeff Ross paid a sweet tribute to Bob Saget as they went to pick up his car from the Los Angeles International airport. The comedian and actor was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando last Sunday. The unexpected demise of the 'Full House' star came as a shock to his loved ones and fans. Saget was 65. Mayer and Ross completed one final errand for their friend three days after his death. The duo recorded a video of themselves driving to pick up the actor's car and recollected their memories of the man. “You know how effusive you have to be in your love for everyone in your life, for each and every person he loved to be told by another, ‘He loved you so much’? Everyone is held into place by Bob’s insistence on telling everyone how much he loved everyone,” said Mayer as they drove down the 405 Freeway on the way to the airport, reported Deadline.
“I’ve never known a human being on this Earth who could give that much love, individually and completely, to that many people in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life, and they were a main character in his life,” added Mayer. Ross described Saget as a family man with his family extending way beyond his blood relatives to loved ones. Mayer spoke about Saget's dedication to finding a cure for the disease that killed his sister. Mayer said the way Saget responded to such a tragedy encapsulated the kind of love and happiness Saget had in him. “He had every excuse under the sun to be cynical, to be upset, to be distrusting,” said Mayer. “He had every reason to be the guy in the back of the bar, bitter. [Instead] he laughed and he spread joy, and his protest against the cruelty of these things was that he was going to smile and spread love and be childlike and be innocent and be loving.”
Ross said Saget was always there for his friends. It didn't matter what time of the day it was and what the matter was, Saget was always there to hang out or lend a helping hand. Ross said Saget treated everyone like family. "[Bob] really did take care of everybody … If you need a doctor, if you need a lawyer, if you need a pastrami sandwich at 3 in the morning because some girl just broke your heart, Bob was that guy. He loved making people happy. It didn’t matter who you were, your status … he somehow took his TV family and made them his real family, which is unheard of,” he continued. “There’s going to be something missing for a long time.”
Saget's family released a statement after his death was confirmed. "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. Though we ask for privacy at this time, we invite you to join us in remembering the love and laughter that Bob brought to the world," the statement read, reported CNN.
