Jodie Sweetin Reveals Her Favorite Moments With The Late Bob Saget
In a lengthy Instagram post on Monday afternoon, Jodie Sweetin said, “There aren’t enough words to express what I’m feeling today. Nor are they big enough to capture even a slice of who he was.”
“One thing I do know, is that we never missed a chance to tell each other, ‘I love you’,” she continued. “Every time we talked, there were at least 3 or 4 exchanged at the end of a conversation, whether it was text, phone call or in person. And he usually had to have the last word, ‘I love you more…’”
“There are so many songs that I hear of and think of him…” she went on. “He introduced me to some of my favorite music through the years.”
She then proceeded to discuss some of her favorite moments that she shared with Saget.
“Talking comedy bits with him. The love of standup and comedy history he shared. The hundreds of inside jokes we all had, the kind that only a family knows and that nobody else will ever understand or think is funny,” she added. “Notes sessions on the show, sitting and laughing all together at the kitchen table on set. He and Dave dancing together at my 13th Birthday party, being ridiculous, as usual. Spending weekends at his house with his daughters when I was young, and having blueberry pancakes.”
“The time I out ‘Bob’d’ Bob, with some joke I told,” she recalled. “Him telling me he was proud of me.”
“These are just a few of the special memories I hold in my heart and that keep playing on the carousel of memories in my mind,” she continued.
Jodie Sweetin Remembers Bob Saget As ‘A Human Being That Could Drive You Nuts’
From her sweet tribute, it’s clear that Sweetin had a very close relationship with the late Saget.
“Bob was a wonderful human being,” she added. “A human being that could drive you nuts at times, and he knew it, but who was so genuine that you couldn’t even get that frustrated. Someone who would also call and profusely apologize for at LEAST 15 minutes if he thought he MAY have perhaps said something he shouldn’t have or thought maybe he took a joke too far.”
“He was a genuinely kind spirit who made it through so much in his life, and was most happy when he was helping others,” she added. “Whether it was personally or through SO many of his different avenues of philanthropy.”
“He gave great hugs too,” she shared. “I would always say ‘you’re the best TV dad ever’. And he was.”
“I’ll miss you Bob,” she continued. “I’ll make sure and tell an inappropriate joke at your funeral. In your honor. I know you would’ve wanted that. But you were supposed to be here longer… How Rude.”
“Thank you all for the love,” she concluded. “And to his amazing wife @eattravelrock and my FH family- we’ll get through this together.”

“He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us,” she added. “Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob’s honor, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob. ~ John, Dave, Candace, Jodie, Lori, Andrea, Scott, Jeff, Ashley and Mary-Kate.”
