A difficult first Christmas … Sunday January 9, 2022, Bob Saget was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. Iconic actor of the series The party at the house, this one was 65 years old. Nearly a year after his disappearance, his widow, Kelly Rizzo, shared a heartbreaking message on the occasion of the holiday season. On Sunday, December 25, 2022, on Instagram, the young woman wrote: “Cherish every moment. I certainly did not think that our first Christmas together (in the same city) last year would be our last. (it was the first year that he was coming to Chicago to spend Christmas with my family and my wonderful daughter-in-law, Lara).”
Grateful for her time with the actor, Kelly Rizzo said, “I’m so glad we had this special time together. He was able to spend time with my niece Alex, who was only 2 years old, and met my niece Brooklyn, who was only 2 weeks old. Alex still remembers ‘Uncle Bob’ and talks about him every day. He certainly left a lasting impression for which I am very grateful. But Bob did it with everyone he met.” With emotion, the young woman wrote: “The holidays are a time of hope, love and togetherness. I pray that if you miss a loved one this holiday season, that you will be blessed with many memories. deep and loving and a gratitude that will get you through.”
Kelly Rizzo: “There’s no better Christmas present than this”
Wishing to see the glass half full, the widow of Bob Saget added to conclude: “As I have said before, I am so grateful to have been able to have this incredible man in my life and to be in his for 6 years old. There is no greater Christmas present than this. Sending love, prayers and wishes to all of you. And I can’t thank you enough for almost a full year of everything. love, support and kindness from everyone. It means more than you know. I can only hope to show you how grateful I am and give it back a little over time.” Touched by these words, many Internet users sent him messages of affection.
