Bob Saget’s wife Kelly Rizzo has posted an emotional tribute to her "sweet husband" following his funeral. After the comedian's tragic death on January 9, the grieving widow had reshared Instagram Stories of the massive outpouring of support from all around the world but hadn’t spoken out about her late husband this past week. 

On Instagram, the 42-year-old shared a sweet snap of her with the 'Full House' star with a  moving caption. Breaking her silence on his death, Kelly wrote: “My sweet husband. After much reflection this week, I’m trying, really trying, to not think I was robbed of time."

“But instead to think: How lucky was I that I got to be the one to be married to THE MOST INCREDIBLE MAN ON EARTH. I was the one who got to go on this crazy ride with him and be in his life these last 6 years," she continued. “We had that time to make each other the happiest we’d ever been and change each other’s lives forever. I got to be the one to love him and cherish him. He deserves all the love. Every ounce of it," Kelly wrote. 
Kelly was all praise for her late husband as she wrote, “Because that’s how amazing Bob was. He was love. If you were in his life you KNEW he loved you. He never missed an opportunity to tell you.” She continued that she has "no regrets" because the couple "loved each other so damn much and told each other 500 times every day. Constantly."

She further added, "I know how much he loved me until the very last moment and he knew the same. I’m so grateful for that. Not everyone gets that". “Bob was a force. I’m sure every one of you out there, whether you knew him or not, was in awe of the enormous outpouring of love and tribute for this special man. It was like nothing anyone has ever seen," said Kelly. 


She continued, “I am so appreciative for the kindness and support from loved ones and strangers. Everyone loves Bob and everyone wants to make sure I’m ok. And for that, I’m eternally grateful." “Bob had so much more he wanted to do and so much more love to give. And to the best of my ability it will be my mission to share how amazing he was with the world, and try in some small way to keep spreading his message of love and laughter. (No, you will never see me do stand-up)," wrote Kelly on her Instagram post. 

She then highlighted the Scleroderma Research Foundation which meant so much to Bob after his older sister, Gay, passed away from the disease in 1994 when she was just 47. “I also want to keep sharing how important the Scleroderma Research Foundation was to him. I just want to make him proud. And to his girls, I will love you all with all my heart, always.”

She concluded on the heartbreaking note: “Honey, I love you more than anything, forever.”
