John Mayer Pens Down An Emotional Message To The Late Bob Saget
The songwriter had his fans and well-meaning followers in tears after the tear-jerking message he wrote down to mark the anniversary of his late friend’s passing.
Taking to his Instagram page, the “Last Train Home” singer posted a picture of the late comedian at an airport alongside himself and Saget’s wife. The late Saget looked very excited in the picture as he had a wide grin while staring at the camera. He donned a black jacket and had on a pair of sunglasses.
Opening up in the accompanying caption, the “New Light” singer began, “One year ago today, we lost Bob Saget. I loved that guy. I love saying “I loved thay guy.” Soon after he left us, I couldn’t finish those three words without falling apart, but now I say it with all the simplicity and complexity that love itself entails.”
He continued by referring to Saget as “otherworldly while he was here” and revealed that he shared countless precious memories with the “Full House” star while he was alive. He further disclosed how he felt, writing, “Grief is a journey, and it’s a profound trip that someone you lose takes as well; they leave the space around you and slowly climb a staircase to find a space with you.”
Mayer then proceeded to declare, “I miss him all the time, but those memories? They’re solid objects, and today we’ll take them out and hold them and trade them and remember how much Bob Saget meant to us. I love that guy, and I always will.”
His emotional post seemed to have touched people’s hearts and garnered over 200,000k likes and even ignited a reaction from Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo. Commenting under his post, she wrote, “Man, did he love you. And he always will. I mean look at his face… that sheer happiness is the look of “yay I get to fly home with John!” – so happy you captured that ❤️❤️.”
