Bob Saget‘s family is fighting for the right to grieve in private!
The iconic comedian died over a month ago, but his name continues to make headlines as the late entertainer’s family struggles to honor him without the public’s interference.
The TV personality’s daughter Lara shared a powerful message about gossiping on Instagram, a few days before the Saget clan filed a lawsuit to block the release of her father’s death records.

In the emotional post, the “How I Met Your Mother” star’s daughter expressed her pain with a poetic piece detailing the power of respect and privacy.
The 32-year-old stated that people needed to understand the impacts of their words and actions plus the importance of “love, kindness, and respect.”
The curator added that everyone was responsible for their actions, especially the spread of gossip and disregard for people’s privacy. In her words:
“If people only knew how much words and actions matter, how much love and respect mean, how important it is to be kind, honest, and respectful, how poisonous gossip is, how important privacy is to grieve, how we are all responsible.”
The artist continued by declaring “love” would always win regardless of the situation, which was why she treated others the same way she wished they would treat her. The “Raising Dad” actor’s daughter wrote:
“I choose love, respect, compassion, and kindness. I choose to actually treat others as I would want to be treated. I choose love every time. It is the only way to take advantage of this life.”
Although Lara chose to love others, she couldn’t help but feel sad for the people taking advantage of her family’s situation to spread gossip, adding that their negativity created “pain in the world and everyone’s lives.”

The 32-year-old concluded her powerful piece by writing, “I pray people find clarity, learn to love themselves, and to honor other human beings on this planet. We all affect each other.”
In response to this touching message, a few of her late father’s “Full House” cast members expressed their support in the comment section.
Candace Cameron Bure wrote, “Amen amen,” while Dave Coulier’s wife, Melissa Coulier, sang Lara’s praises with the comment, “Beautifully written. I love you.”
In addition, celebrities such as the actress Clare Grant and the food blogger Erica Eckman joined fans in flooding the post with red heart emojis.
As aforementioned, this tender message was shared on social media before the Saget family filed a lawsuit against Orange County Sheriff John Mina and the District Nine Medical Examiner’s Office.
As reported by The Blast, the comedian’s family — wife Kelly Rizzo and three daughters Aubrey, Lara, and Jennifer — sued the named parties to stop the release of documents related to the entertainer’s death.
Aside from the injunction to stop the release of all reports, photographs, audio and video recordings related to the TV personality’s demise, the family also wanted the information exempted from public records requests.
The “Dumb and Dumber” actor’s loved ones claimed that the release of this information would cause “irreparable harm in the form of extreme mental pain, anguish, and emotional distress.”
Bob Saget’s Family Won Their Temporary Injunction Lawsuit
PEOPLE recently shared that the Saget clan had won a temporary injunction to stop the release of information surrounding “The Aristocrats” star’s death.
In the court documents obtained by the news outlet, it was revealed that the late actor’s wife and daughters had “a clear legal right or interest in the Protected Records as the surviving spouse and children.”
Therefore, the family’s request for a temporary injunction was granted, and this ban of all information about the “Dirty Daddy” author’s demise would continue until the court said otherwise.
Regarding their victory, Brian Bieber, the Saget family’s attorney, stated his clients were grateful to the Judge for ruling in favor of their privacy.
A day after his stand-up performance, the former host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” died in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, on January 9 at the age of 65.
A toxicology analysis carried out by Chief Medical Examiner Joshua Stephany later revealed that the icon’s passing was “the result of blunt head trauma,” presumably caused by an accident.
