Missing his pal. John Mayer shared a heartfelt tribute after Bob Saget died on the age of 65.
“I love you, Bob. I will never forget you,” the singer, 44, wrote through Instagram on Monday, January 10. “I will visit you often in my memories, and I hope I get to see you in my dreams. I will tell my kids about you. I’m taking you with me forever. I love you, Bob.”
Saget was discovered useless in his Orlando, Florida, resort room on Sunday, January 9. He is survived by his spouse, Kelly Rizzo, and three daughters: Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer, whom he shares with ex-wife Sherri Kramer.
Mayer had a shocking friendship with the Full House alum, even attending the late comic’s marriage ceremony to Rizzo, 42, in October 2018. The “Daughters” crooner’s presence precipitated a little bit of confusion with Saget’s former costar John Stamos.
“I messed up with Stamos because he was going to give a speech, then Mayer jumped the shark and I didn’t know what to do,” the previous America’s Funniest Home Videos host teased throughout an April 2019 interview on the “Chicks in the Office” podcast.
Following the marriage snafu, Saget proposed a manner to patch issues up with Stamos, 58. “I think the three of us need to go to dinner and just get this thing straightened out. It’s serious boy band drama,” he joked.
Saget had been shut with the songwriter for a number of years. The twosome bonded when the Fuller House alum requested Mayer to do a stand-up efficiency throughout a profit for scleroderma, an autoimmune situation that precipitated considered one of Saget’s sisters’ deaths. In May 2018, the Grammy winner honored his pal with a particular birthday tribute.
“Happy Birthday to my dear friend @bobsaget,” the Connecticut native wrote in a Facebook submit alongside a black-and-white photograph of Saget. “Here’s some things to know about Bob. Bob is a comic. And a poet. And he’s a bluesman. He has a uniquely strong bond with ‘life itself.’ He’s a warrior who has seen pain and loss, but somehow still understands that love and joy is the reason we’re kicking around on this planet. Bob Saget is an influencer; he reminds you to say ‘I love you’ more often, by way of his own telling you. Bob, you are a very, very, very special human being. I love you.”
Two years later, Saget referred to the musician as “one of the best guitarists alive” and “one of my dearest friends on this Earth” throughout a dialog on his “Bob Saget’s Here For You” podcast.
“He’s such a good person and such a loving person,” the actor gushed in May 2020. “He’s been there for me when I needed a good friend. … He’s done things that not many people can do.”
At the time, Saget mirrored on his “wonderful love” for Mayer and his expertise. “There’s so much range in what you do,” he instructed the “Heartbreak Warfare” singer. “I became a lover of your music and … I was lucky enough to be in the studio with you when you were working on [your album] Paradise Valley. And we went for sushi afterward and you were literally finishing what became one of my favorite songs of yours … which is ‘Badge and Gun.’ … That is a song [about] marching through life. And that struck me as your journey.”
