Five days after comedian and actor Bob Saget died, friends and family gathered for a private memorial service in Los Angeles to pay their respects to the “Full House” star, according to People, TMZ and the Daily Mail.
Stores posted photos from Friday’s service showing Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo and “Full House” stars including John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweeten and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen arriving dressed in black. Dave Chappelle, Jimmy Kimmel, John Mayer and Chris Rock were also pictured.
Stamos called it “the hardest day of my life” in front of the monument.
“God, give me peace to accept things I can’t change, courage to change things I can change, and wisdom to know the difference,” Stamos tweeted.
Chappelle referred to the memorial during a set in Los Angeles on Thursday. “Tomorrow I will go and lie down with my friend to rest,” he said during a performance at The Peppermint Club, according to TMZ and People. He also shared that he regretted not sending an SMS to Saget before his friend’s death.
“He just wrote me an SMS and I saw the text yesterday and I never wrote it off because I was busy,” Chappelle said on stage. “I’m just saying this to remind you that these moments are precious.”
Bure released a feedback photo of herself and Saget on Friday. The two are seen embracing what looks like Bure’s wedding.
“Hug as Bob ♥ ️” Bure wrote in the post. “I love you, my dear sweet Bobby Dad.”
Best known for his role as Danny Tanner’s widowed father in the family sitcom ABC and the original host of America’s “Funniest Home Videos,” Saget was found unanswered in his hotel room at The Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene on Sunday around 4 p.m.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office told TODAY in a statement that detectives found “no signs of dirty gambling or drug use.” The medical examiner will finally determine the cause and manner of death, with an autopsy being performed on Monday.
Further studies and investigations “can take up to 10-12 weeks,” Chief Medical Officer Joshua Stephany said in a statement. “We express our condolences to Mr. Saget’s beloved in these difficult times.”

The comedian toured the country with the “I Don’t Do Negative” tour and performed a two-hour set in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday.
His last post on Instagram on Saturday night was full of hope.
“I loved tonight’s show in Jacksonville,” Saget wrote. “Very grateful and entertaining audience. Little did I know that I did a two-hour set tonight.
He added: “I’m back in comedy, like when I was 26. I think I find my new voice and I love his every moment.”
Together with his wife Rizzo after Saget, there are three daughters from their first marriage to Sherri Kramer – Aubrey Saget, Lara Melanie Saget and Jennifer Belle Saget.
