Bob Saget’s teammates and famous friends gather to pay their respects at his funeral

They will honor him wherever he goes.

On Friday, Bob Saget was buried in a ceremony in Los Angeles. The funeral was held just five days after the 65-year-old comedian was found dead in his Florida hotel room on Sunday.

Although the service was small, several of Saget’s closest friends were present, including his Full house costars, John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Lori Loughlin and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Stamos’ wife Caitlin McHugh, Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli, Jeff Ross, John Mayer, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin and Jonathan Silverman were also in attendance.

The stars were pictured outside the funeral home arriving for the ceremony, most looking dark in formal attire.

Immediately after news of his death was announced, members of the Hollywood community – many of whom attended Friday’s funeral – paid their respects to the star on social media.

Cameron Bure, who played Saget’s daughter DJ Tanner on Full house, posted several Instagram tributes, including one where she called Saget “the glue” of her Full house family.

“We have always been so deeply connected since the day we met when I was 10,” she wrote in part. “You were not just like a father, but one of my closest friends in life. It hurts like I’ve never felt before. I love you, I love you, I love you. ‘love.”

Stamos responded to the loss by writing on Twitter, “I’m broken. I’m gutted,” he wrote. “I’m completely in shock. I’ll never have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.”

Before Friday’s funeral, Stamos revealed, “Today will be the hardest day of my life.”

Sweetin, who played Saget’s daughter, Stephanie, in Full house, paid tribute to his “wonderful” co-star on Instagram, writing in part, I’ll always say “you’re the best TV dad ever.” And he was. I will miss you Bob. I’ll make sure and tell an inappropriate joke at your funeral. In your honor. I know you would have wanted that. But you were supposed to stay here longer… How rude.

Ross and Mayer also wrote touching posts for Saget on social media this week.

The duo then paid tribute to their friend on Instagram Live on Wednesday as they collected his Prius from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which he had parked there before his flight to Florida.

During their 25-minute live stream, Mayer and Ross tearfully opened up about their friend, the qualities that made Saget special and the memories they will never forget.

Other heartfelt tributes this week include one from Chappelle, who revealed Saget texted him before he died but never got a chance to respond, and a moving opening monologue from Kimmel .

“Dude, he just texted me and I saw the text yesterday and never got back to him because I was just busy,” Chappelle said. “Yeah, it happens. I’m just saying this to remind you: these moments are precious.

Kimmel tearfully added: “Bob was the sweetest…I have so many wonderfully kind and encouraging text messages and emails, calls from Bob. He always had a compliment. He would write sometimes just to tell me that he loved me, and I know he did that for a lot of people.”

Saget is survived by his wife, Kelly Rizzo, and three daughters – Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29 – with whom he shares ex-wife Sherri Kramer.
