Kelly Rizzo, the widow of beloved actor-comedian Bob Saget, took to social media to thank fans for their love and sympathy of the late “Full House” star.
On Tuesday, Rizzo, 42, posted a series of videos on her Instagram stories, according to People. She spoke about her grieving process and discussed how Saget would have responded to the avalanche of tributes since his death in an Orlando, Florida, hotel room on Jan. 9.
“I really just wanted to take a second to say to everybody that it has not gone unnoticed. I have been incredibly grateful and appreciative of all of you for the love and support. I have had people who were strangers that now have become friends on Instagram,” Rizzo said. “So many people have shared your stories with me of the loss that you’ve been through. You’ve poured out your heart. It’s just really kind that you’ve tried to help me by sharing your stories.”
“This whole grief thing is something that, I’ve learned recently, a lot of people don’t understand, you don’t really like to talk about it, it’s not a very fun topic, but it’s something that, at one point or another, we all go through,” Rizzo added. “Even though I’m still very new to this world, I feel I’ve had kind of a crash course in it. Especially doing it very publicly, it adds a whole other level that takes it to this different place.”
A report from the Orange County Medical Examiner stated that Saget had likely fallen backward and died from blunt head trauma. Saget suffered multiple skull fractures and abrasions to his scalp stemming from “an unwitnessed fall backwards” and striking “the posterior aspect of his head,” according to the official report.
Law enforcement authorities later said they believe that Bob Saget likely fell in the bathroom in his hotel room and struck his head on the floor, according to People.
The couple married in 2019 after dating for three years, according to CNN.
