Bob Saget’s widow, shares details of last Christmas with her husband

ORLANDO, Fla. — Kelly Rizzo, the widow of comedian Bob Saget, took to Instagram this weekend to share details of the last Christmas she shared with her husband.


“Cherish every single moment. I certainly didn’t think that our first Christmas together (in the same city) last year would be our last.”

Rizzo shared that the couple spent last Christmas with her family in Chicago, where Bob spent time with Rizzo’s nieces Alex and Brooklyn, and that Alex still talks about “Uncle Bob” all the time.
