Bob Saget was the older wiser ‘me' for nine years on How I Met Your Mother. He was the kindest, loveliest, funniest, most supportive man. The easiest person to be around. A mensch among mensches. 1/7

I’m at a complete loss over my friend Bob Saget. He was gentle, he was kind, and he was beyond funny.

— Dave Rubin (@RubinReport) January 10, 2022

Bob Saget was full of laughter, and fun person to watch during the 80’s and 90’s. I am sure he is laughing in heaven and bringing endless joy to all. He will be missed immensely by all who loved him.

The late Bob Saget, who, as per TMZ, he described as: “One of the nicest men on the planet.”

Chapelle recently said that he wished he’d replied to Bob Saget’s final text message.

Chapelle and Saget were very close, and they both supported each other through a lot, including every time Saget would hold fundraisers for scleroderma.

Performing at the Peppermint Club in Weho, Chapelle talked sentimentally for a moment.

Talking to his audience about laying his “comrad” down to rest, he said he didn’t see it “coming.”

“Man he just texted me and I saw the text yesterday and I never texted him back,” he began expressing his regret, as per TMZ.“I was just busy. Yeah it happens“I’m just saying this to remind you that these moments are precious and when I come out at night I’m not just hanging out, I’m making memories,” he continued.

“S**t when I go out at night, I’m making history,” he finished before talking about some criticism he received in 1 of his Netflix specials.

Everyone should take on his advice. Never leave a text unread, always tell a person you love them, and cherish every single memory.

And well, it seems as though people continue to display their never-ending love for Saget with John Mayer and Jeff Ross going to the airport to pick up his car.

John Mayer, an American songwriter and artist, and Jeff Ross, an American standup comedian, went recently to pick up Saget’s Prius at the LAX airport, and in doing so, they created a memory together, that we’re sure they’ll never forget.

In a video that John Mayer shared to his Instagram, the stars talked fondly of Saget.

“I’ve just 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 the main character in their life,” Mayer began. “He really was loved, he represented that, he had a beautiful wife, 3 daughters, and then made his fake family on TV into his real family,” Ross then added.

“Bob’s repeated expression of love is the greatest gift that he left people because all we have is the pain of his going,” Mayer added.

They both went on to talk about how vulnerable they feel “without him in the world,” laughing about how honored they are to pick his car up from LAX because they’ve not picked someone up from the airport in “ten years,” explaining that Saget is a special exception. Picking up Saget’s car actually cost $250, as well. But, Ross wanted to pay for it, which, Mayer didn’t understand until he realized that Ross wanted to keep the receipt as a memory of Bob. And in dealing with turmoil in his life, Saget always responded by lighting up the lives of others: “He was going to smile, and spread love, and be childlike, and be innocent,” Mayer explained.

But, not only did they share their love for the sweet personality Saget displayed, they shared how funny he was, as well.

“Right now he’d be saying ‘do you want to pull into crags and eat some meat?’ Bob loved his steak,” Ross said. “I wanted him to just be my brother and not have him feel like he was having to take care of yet another person. He really did take care of everybody, he took care of me. “If you need a pastrami sandwich at 3 in the morning because some girl just broke your heart, Bob was that guy,” Ross continued.

The two also posted individual tributes to Saget on their Instagram feeds, and they were as heart-melting as their video was.

Ross wrote in his tribute that he’d spent time crying with Saget’s family. “I spent yesterday in Bob’s kitchen crying, eating, and even laughing with his awesome wife Kelly, a few of our close pals, and Bob’s wonderful castmates. “Yes it was a full house but it still felt very very empty without our star. Bob made everything better and losing him hasn’t set in for me. But in a way, I think this is the easy part.“The hard part will be next time I need advice or some cheering up or a pastrami sandwich at 2 am after a break-up and my pal Bob isn’t around to get me through it.“I hope everyone reading this has a friend like Bob,” he finished.

And John Mayer’s post to Saget was just as heart-melting.

“My brother Bob was a force of nature; a big tall love monster who would hug me and rest his head on my shoulder. His love for those around him was always accounted for. “He was deep and wide and vast, and he would’ve probably made a joke about me saying ‘deep and wide.’ The man had range. I’ve met many people in my life, but when Bob crossed my path, I just held onto him, and I wasn’t letting go. “I knew he was the realest thing. I would like you to know that the man you hope was as awesome as you think was way beyond what you can ever imagine. “He was impossibly kind. And generous. And loving. And I have more to say so please let me do like one more of these, okay? It’s just the way it’s gonna be,” he finished.

Bob was never one to cling to resentment and bitterness…
