Celebrities like Mayim Bialikare still feeling the loss of the late Bob Saget.

The “Full House” star passed away on January 9, 2022, shortly after performing a stand-up comedy routine in Florida. The “America’s Funniest Home Videos” host was only 65-years-old when he passed away.

He had been staying at a Ritz-Carlton hotel in Orlando, Florida, when his wife called the hotel to check up on him after she hadn’t heard from him all day. Saget was found by hotel staff “tucked in bed.” They immediately called 911 around 4 PM. When police arrived, they found Saget deceased at the scene. It is believed that he went peacefully in his sleep and authorities have ruled out drug use or foul play as a factor in his death.

Although many have questioned how the “How I Met Your Mother” narrator, who was in otherwise good health, could pass away so suddenly, it is now believed that his cause of death was a heart attack or a stroke.

Even still, knowing the cause of death does little to help the ache of his passing, especially for fans and close friends like “Blossom” child star Mayim Bialik.
