BOB SAGET'S LAST CONVERSATION WITH HIS WIFE, KELLY RIZZO
In an interview with Hoda Kotb on the "Today Show" on January 20, 2022, Rizzo confessed that her body did not let her cry all day anymore, so she felt calmer.
Not thinking about Saget was impossible for several reasons, including that she still lived in the home they shared for a few years. About their last conversation, Rizzo said it was all love.

Saget was in Florida at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, as part of a stand-up tour expected to end in June 2022, so he and Rizzo exchanged their final words over the phone. Rizzo explained:
"I think I said, 'I love you dearly,' and he said, 'I love you endlessly.' I said, 'I can't wait to see you tomorrow.'"
She also confirmed that Saget was an "I love you" guy who would not hesitate to tell his friends and loved ones how much he appreciated them. It was one of the reasons he felt like everyone's dear friend.
WHO IS BOB SAGET'S WIFE?
Rizzo's pain was immeasurable, but she wanted to make sure his friends and family could also get through it because they had known him for much longer than her.
Before Rizzo, Saget was married to Sherri Kramer from 1982 to 1997. They had three daughters, Aubrey (1987), Lara (1989), and Jennifer (1992), and they were the "highest thing" in the comedian's life.

In 2015, Saget met Rizzo. The "Full House" actor and the "Eat Travel Rock TV" hostess met through mutual friends and made their engagement public on Instagram in November 2017.
Saget and Rizzo tied the knot in October 2018 on a wedding night described by the bride as "perfection." She added that the love and support her friends and family showed her was overwhelming.
BOB SAGET AND KELLY RIZZO'S RELATIONSHIP
The couple documented some of their outings and time together on social media, and they looked beautiful together. However, his friend and touring partner Mike Young admitted they were happy and in love even when nobody was around.
Young pointed out that they were perfect for each other because they were hilarious and awesome together. He joked that they were neurotic, but Rizzo was the right person to handle the late comedian.
Bob Saget would talk about his wife all the time, added Young. Instead of spending some extra time away from home after his performances, Saget would book the first flight back home to Rizzo. Rest in peace, legend.
