How I Felt Bob Saget’s Presence on My Wedding Day

Gone but not forgotten Jodie SweetinOpened up about how Bob Saget’s presence was felt at her wedding following his death – and it involved John Stamos’ wardrobe.

“John was getting ready to leave the house, I guess, and [his wife] Caitlin [McHugh] looked at him and was like, ‘You can’t wear that shirt. That shirt’s not working. It doesn’t look good,’” Sweetin, 40, recalled to E!’s Daily PopInterview published Tuesday, August 16. “He’s like, ‘Ugh, fine.’ So he goes up to his closet, grabs a black button-up shirt, gets in the car. He’s like ‘Why is this shirt so big? Why is this shirt so big?’ He realized it was one of the shirts [Bob’s wife] Kelly [Rizzo] had given him out of Bob’s closet, and it was this black button-up that Bob would always wear.”

Sweetin continued, “It was Bob’s shirt, so Bob was there in this weird little way. John hugged me and I then kissed the shirt. I was like, ‘Bob’s here too.’”

The UnSweetinedAuthor and Stamos, aged 58, appeared alongside Saget in the family comedy Full HouseFrom 1987 to 1995.

“One of the things I learned from Bob and, you know, even now in having to walk through his death and everything is how to laugh through some of the most painful moments of your life,” she revealed on Good Morning AmericaAt the time. “He never lost the ability to laugh at himself, to laugh at his situation, to make fun of something that would otherwise feel like it was going to break you. That was Bob.”

While Saget wasn’t present for the Illinois native’s big event, in which she tied the knot with husband Mescal Wasilewski, Rizzo, 43, was in attendance – and confirmed the former America’s Funniest Home VideosThe host was there in spirit.
