A tearful John Mayer and comedian Jeff Ross shared a moving tribute to Bob Saget Wednesday as they drove their car after picking him up at Los Angeles International Airport.
Mayer, often with a lump in her throat, reiterated that her pained expression was just one drop in the general well of sadness felt by so many who loved Saget and were loved by Saget after his sudden death at the age of 65. years on Sunday.
“I’ve just never known a human being on this earth who could give that much love individually and completely to that many people in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life, and they were a main character in his life,” Mayer said.
“And the fear for me is that everyone, out of respect, objects and differs, and that’s just because people understand how important their personal relationship with Bob was. The biggest fear would be to talk about Bob’s love replacing someone else’s love. person for Bob.” said the singer-songwriter, who performed at Saget’s wedding in 2018.
“It really was love. It represented that,” Ross said, driving the comedian’s car.
The “Full House” actor died Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando after performing a nearly two-hour set Saturday at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall in Jacksonville. The medical examiner’s office said final results of an autopsy can take up to three months, but initial findings showed “no evidence of drug use or foul play.”
Tributes to the comedian from almost everyone who knew him in his six and a half decades reflected his generosity and kindness.
“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man,” Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who shared the role of his youngest daughter on “Full House,” said in a joint statement.
Pete Davidson, along with many others, shared that Saget had often stepped in to help him through difficult times.
“I just wanted you to know that Bob Saget was one of the nicest men on the planet,” Davidson said in a statement. “When I was younger and several times throughout our friendship, he helped me through some difficult mental health issues. He was on the phone with my mom for hours trying to help in any way he could – connecting us with doctors and new things we can try. He kept an eye on me and made sure I was okay.”
Ross said Wednesday that he felt “vulnerable” and “less protected” without Saget in the world.
He was the “guy you called if you had a life issue,” Ross said. “There’s going to be something missing for a long time.”
Mayer — who earlier this week in a tribute to Saget called him a “love monster” — said that, without his friend, he’s having trouble processing his death.
“The guy to help with this is the guy that’s not here,” Mayer said. “I didn’t understand this so get ready for some records.”
