Candace Cameron Bure Pens Touching Tribute to Bob Saget 2 Years After His Death

Candace Cameron Bure is fondly remembering her TV father, Bob Saget, on the second anniversary of his tragic passing. The actress took to Instagram to pay tribute to the beloved comedian and sitcom star.

 “I miss you always,” Cameron Bure wrote alongside a picture of her and Saget on the red carpet. “I could use one of your hugs right now,” she added.

Last year, Candace Cameron Bure also remembered Bob Saget on the first anniversary of his passing. She reposted the tribute this week, reminding fans of her feelings a year ago over her TV dad’s death. It was a candid snapshot of her and Saget together from their Full House days.

“I stayed up for hours watching videos of Bob on my phone,” Bure wrote on Instagram at the time. “Videos I couldn’t watch a year ago because it hurt too much. Last night they made me laugh.”

Bure added, “They comforted me and warmed my heart.” She noted that she watched the videos “over and over and laughed so hard.” Bure admitted to missing him before adding, “I’m grateful he was my friend for so many years. I love you, Bob.”

The actress ended the post with a word of advice to her fans. “Now go hug a friend like Bob would,” she wrote.

Candace Cameron Bure and Bob Saget Played Opposite Each Other on Two Versions of ‘Full House’

On January 9, 2021, Saget was discovered dead at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. His family later confirmed that he passed away as a result of head trauma. He was 65 years old.

Bob Saget played Danny Tanner on Full House and Candace Cameron Bure joined him as his on-screen daughter D.J. Tanner. The family sitcom was a Friday night favorite and ran from 1987 to 1995. Both actors reprised their roles in the reboot Fuller House, which ran on Netflix from 2016 to 2020.

Saget’s widow Kelly Rizzo also turned to Instagram to pay tribute to her late husband this week. The post was a photo of Saget on stage. Rizzo expressed her disbelief that two years have already gone by. “2 years. Wow,” she wrote alongside the photo. “Simultaneously feels like a week and an eternity. I chose this photo of Bob as not only was it the last photo he shared and one of the last texts he sent me, but it perfectly encapsulates how he would want all of us to remember him. With his guitar, on a stage, doing what he loved to do…making people laugh…making people happy.”
