Bob Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo pays tribute to late husband with her T-shirt on a night out


Bob Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo continued her day-long tribute to her late husband on Tuesday night when she wore a T-shirt honoring his memory while out to dinner.

The 42-year-old TV host rocked a black ‘Love like Jesus, Hug like Bob Saget’ T-shirt, which was created by her late husband’s former Full House costar Candace Cameron Bure.

Kelly was seen dining at the celebrity hotspot Craig’s in West Hollywood after paying tribute to Saget earlier in the day on what would have been his 66th birthday.

Kelly dressed up her casual black shirt with a sleek gray blazer with the sleeves rolled up to reveal tattoos just past her wrists.

She tucked it loosely in a set of black leather shorts, and she complemented them with knee-high black boots. 

The former realtor wore her shoulder-length blond hair parted down the middle and partly tucked behind her ears, revealing her modest dangling earrings.

She accessorized with a thick black handbag over one shoulder, and she had on a thick gold bracelet on one wrist.

As she exited the restaurant, Kelly was seen stopping to chat with another woman.

Candace Cameron Bure previously revealed a sweatshirt variation of her Bob Saget shirt back in January, in a photo showing her and fellow Full House star Dave Coulier taking a stroll together through a farmers market.

‘This has been one of the hardest weeks of my life and yet, incredibly beautiful because of family and close friends,’ she wrote at the time, just days after Bob’s death.

‘I think it sums everything up just right,’ she added of the shirt, which she said of the shirt, whose design she credited to Erin Noël.

Candace wrote at the time that 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the tribute shirt would go to the National Scleroderma Foundation, a charity that Bob served on the board of after his sister died of the disease.

The comedian died in his sleep at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando in January after accidentally sustaining blunt head trauma.

Kelly marked his 66th birthday earlier on Tuesday by posting a series of Instagram pictures taken in Los Cabos on his 65th, the last one he celebrated.

One of the photos she included was a romantic snapshot of him gazing lovingly across an alfresco dinner table at her. 

‘Happy birthday my Love. These pictures and videos were taken exactly 1 year ago in Mexico. We always celebrated our birthdays together with a trip. (His is the 17th and mine is 19th),’ she recalled in the caption. 

‘This last trip was so special. We both celebrated each other so big. You never know when something is going to be “the last” time. But I’m so grateful that he was showered with all of the love he deserves.’

Kelly added: ‘I pray he can see all of the love he’s already getting from around the world today. Honey, everyone loves you so damn much. Everyone wants you to know how important and special you are on your special day, and we ALL celebrate you.’

She continued: ‘You are one of a kind and you certainly made my world go ‘round. I love you more than anything and miss you every minute. Your girls and I will hold on tight to each other today. And I know you’d want me to get a martini tonight, so I’ll oblige. Happy birthday, honey.’

Along with Kelly, Bob is survived by his three daughters — Aubrey, 35, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29 — whom he shared with his first wife Sherri Kramer.

Her birthday album included a sweet video of Bob being presented with a birthday cake topped with a sparkler candle at the dinner table.

As the candle fizzed away in front of him, Bob could be heard joking that he was unable to blow it out as he would ‘burn my head.’

Bob’s 66th birthday was greeted with an outpouring of tributes on Twitter, including from his friend and fellow comedian Seth Green.

Seth posted a selfie with his wife Clare Grant and Bob, writing: ‘Happy birthday to the best there ever was @bobsgaet Love you always pal’ – prompting Kelly to quote the tweet and write: ‘And he loved both of you so much.’ 

‘Bob Saget and I would always text each other on our shared birthday,’ Craig Ferguson wrote. ‘No text this year. Happy Birthday Bob wherever you are.’

Kelly wrote to him: ‘Happy Birthday Craig, hope to see you again in Scotland when I visit this summer. I know Bob sure wishes he could be there too.’ 

Bob was found dead in his hotel room bed in Orlando around 4pm EST on January 9 after performing a stand-up gig, sources close to the investigation told TMZ. 

The police saw no sign of drugs or foul play and it was initially suspected that he succumbed to either a stroke or a heart attack.

However, the following month, his family announced that medical examiners had ruled head trauma to be the cause of death.

‘They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep,’ said the family’s statement.

Florida medical examiner Joshua Stephany, MD confirmed to People magazine that Bob’s death was ‘the result of blunt head trauma.’

Blunt head trauma can cause death via brain bleed, bruising to the brain or asphyxiation while unconscious.
