The entertainment world continues to mourn the shocking death of Bob Saget who died on Sunday at the age of 65.

The man who is best known for his role in “Full House” and host for “America’s Funniest Home Videos” was found unresponsive in a hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed his report and said there were no signs of foul play or drug use, the New York Times reported. He was on tour and performed on Saturday night at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., southeast of Jacksonville.

Tributes poured for the late actor, some who knew him well.

For her part, Saget's second wife, Kelly Rizzo recapped the years she spent with Saget together. But there was perhaps nothing more memorable for the TV show host than spending last Christmas together after three years of marriage.

“So happy to spend my very first Christmas with @bobsaget (even though we’ve been married over 3 years!) because he’s finally in Chicago for the holidays! And also special to be at my home away from home @thepeninsulachi – THE most beautiful and festive place for the holidays in all of Chicago. Cheers to everyone on this special holiday. May you all be surrounded by peace and love,” Rizzo wrote on Instagram.

Saget’s family was very devastated by the passing of the actor. Regardless, they are encouraging fans to donate to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, a cause that the late actor was very fond of.

The reason for this was that Saget first supported the foundation in 1991 and became an advocate after his sister (Gay) was diagnosed with the rare autoimmune disease last year.

"She got treatment, but it was just treating her symptoms with drugs like prednisone and cortisone. She had to move to Los Angeles to live with my parents because she needed so much help. She passed away just two years later,” Saget said to NIH Medline Plus Magazine in 2019.

Scleroderma is a rare, autoimmune connective tissue and rheumatic disease that primarily causes inflammation in the skin, and can lead to inflammation in other parts of the body, according to the National Institutes of Health. The disease causes the skin to form hard, tight patches that can grow or shrink, and sometimes suddenly disappear.
