Bob Saget's Heartbreaking Last Words On Social Media

Beloved actor and comedian Bob Saget died on January 9 at a hotel in Orlando, Florida, TMZ reported. While the cause of death has not been confirmed as of this writing, the Orange County Sheriff's Department in Florida tweeted that no foul play or drug use was suspected. The sheriff's department also wrote that authorities were called to the Ritz-Carlton to assist a man who was unresponsive, adding, "The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene."

Saget, who is best known as Danny Tanner from "Full House" and as a previous host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," still had an active career as a comedian. The 65-year-old has been hopping around the United States doing stand-up shows in a number of states and was scheduled to continue his tour for the next several months. He played his last show on January 8 outside of Jacksonville, Florida, which is where he shared his final social media post from.

Bob Saget wrote that he was finding his 'new voice'

Bob Saget did a show at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Florida on January 8, which turned out to be his last. He shared a selfie from the stage on social media in the early hours of the morning on January 9, and he was clearly in good spirits following his set. He shared the selfie on Twitter with an abbreviated caption but shared more sentiments on Instagram. Alongside his photo, he wrote that he loved the Florida show, calling the audience "really nice." 

Saget went on to write, "I'm back in comedy like I was when I was 26. I guess I'm finding my new voice and loving every moment of it," before finishing with, "Goin' everywhere until I get the special shot. And then probably keep going cause I'm addicted to this sh*t. Peace out."

Fans are pouring their hearts out on social media in response to Saget's death, mourning the loss of America's dad. It's a tragedy to see that not only was Saget's life cut short but also that he died while so excited about what was to come. 

Bob Saget was protective of Candace Cameron Bure

Interestingly enough, even though Bob Saget admitted he was someone who was just finding his own "voice" again, he was also someone who helped others maintain their own, too. It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that he always had a close relationship with his former "Full House" co-star Candace Cameron Bure, whom he treated like a daughter off-screen as much as he did on-screen. Back in April 2021, he made a point to defend Bure after critics went after her for supposedly being "fake," according to TODAY. While on Saget's "Here for You" podcast, the actor told Bure, "When you are doing anything, you don't phone it in. You're a businesswoman. You sell things and you try to put your branding on it. That means something to you. You're not going to sell something that doesn't mean anything to you, and you're not faking. ... It's beautiful the way you're doing it, and you're doing it earnest. And I'm sorry you're perky sometimes! What's wrong with being perky?"

Seeing how Saget always went out of his way to make others understand their worth, it came as no shock that Bure and many other celebrities are now mourning someone who was more than just their colleague and friend — he was their champion.

Bob Saget was more than just 'America's Dad' to the people who knew him

Candace Cameron Bure was one of the first celebrities to speak out about Bob Saget's death, according to People. Bure took to her Twitter account, where she struggled to find the words. "I don't know what to say. I have no words," she wrote. "Bob was one of the best humans beings I've ever known in my life. I loved him so much."

Meanwhile, another one of Saget's "Full House" co-stars, John Stamos, admitted that he felt devastated over his friend's death. He tweeted, "I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby." Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen also released a statement about Saget's death (via ABC News). "Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man," they said. "We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has."

Clearly, Saget was more than just "America's Dad" to so many people who knew him and loved him.
