Bob Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, is opening up about her grief and the last conversation she had with the comedian prior to his death on January 9 at age 65.

As seen in the video above, In an interview that aired on NBC on Thursday, Rizzo said she is still trying to process the loss of her husband.

“I was just telling some of my family that today’s a little bit — there’s a little bit more of a sense of calm,” she said.

“I think you get to a point where your body will just physically not let you cry anymore, or at least all day.”

As the calmness settles in, the 42-year-old said she has started to come to terms with Saget’s death.

“So I think I’m possibly getting there, or I’m just numb,” she explained.

“I can’t tell what it is right now.”

Rizzo said that it’s “impossible” not to reflect on their relationship.

“Everything is a memory, everything reminds me of him,” she said.

“So, that’s been difficult but also wonderful at the same time.”

Following news that Saget was found dead in a Florida hotel room hours after finishing a stand-up performance, fans, friends, and co-stars flooded social media with comments about their connection to the actor.

The outpouring of love and support for Saget was the “silver lining” for her during this difficult time, Rizzo said.

“I don’t know how else I’d be getting through this right now,” she added.

The kind words posted on social media reflected the loving attitude Saget exuded in his everyday life, Rizzo said.

“He put it all out there,” she added.

“Anyone he met and even spent any time with at all, he told them he loved them endlessly and tirelessly. And that was his entire message.”

‘If you knew Bob, and he loved you, you knew it. There was never, ever a doubt in your mind.’ – Kelly Rizzo

On January 14, Saget’s closest friends and family members came together for a private funeral service.

Mr. Rizzo revealed that many of the attendees approached her and said they had spoken to the Full House star as recently as a week before his death.

“I’m like, ‘How did he have the time to talk to everybody and tell everybody that he loved them all the time?’” Rizzo said she wondered, joking that that must’ve been why the comedian was always on his phone.

“I knew that that’s how it was ‘cause he told me 500 times a day, but there was not one person out there that doubted his love for him.”

Later in the interview, Rizzo spoke about her last conversation with Saget.

“I think I said, ‘I love you dearly,’ and he said, ‘I love you endlessly,’” she recalled.

“I said, ‘I can’t wait to see you tomorrow.’

‘And then, you know, it was just all very — it was just all love.’ – Kelly Rizzo

Full House co-stars like John Stamos, Lori Loughin Mary Kate, and Ashley Olsen, who also honored their former cast members through social media posts and heartbreaking statements, attended the memorial service.

In Thursday’s interview, Rizzo briefly touched on Saget’s powerful relationship with his friends — including Stamos, who was Saget’s best friend for 35 years.

“I know how important he was to them,” she said.

“And so I’m just trying to make sure that they’re OK because, you know, he was my husband but I’m like — ‘I’ve only known him barely six years. You guys have known him for 20, 30, 40 years.’”

Saget and Rizzo tied the knot in 2018.

She called their love story a “crazy ride” in her Instagram tribute to Saget.

Comedian Mike Young, Saget’s longtime touring partner, recently said the actor always wanted to fly home immediately after a stand-up gig to reunite with his wife.

As tears began to stream down her face, Rizzo replied, “He valued every single second that we had together.”

“So that’s why (this) is so heartbreaking.

“But at the same time, I know that (every) second that we had together was just maximized to the fullest.

“There was nothing left unsaid and nothing left on the table. So there are the things that I’m just trying to hold onto.”

Saget and Rizzo’s love story

Rizzo then explained how she and Saget first got together.

She said the comedian found her on Instagram and reached out to a mutual friend.

Rizzo said she was hesitant at first because of the age difference, but they became friends and started a long-distance relationship.

As soon as the two met in person, they became “inseparable”, Rizzo said.

“From our very first date, pretty much, we knew that that was it. So it was instant,” she said.

“We knew that it was something different and unique.”

She said she feels blessed, not lucky, to have met him.

“Because people are like, ‘Oh. Oh. You know, you got robbed. And it’s not fair,’” Rizzo explained through tears.

“And I know it’s not fair, but at the same time I got to be that one in his life that was with him for these last almost six years.”

While it is difficult to keep a positive mindset.

“I got to be that person that went on this amazing journey with him,” Rizzo said she tries to think.
