John Stamos referred to as on the Tony Awards to rectify their exclusion of his late buddy Bob Saget from the “In Memoriam” section of the present.
Ahead of the award ceremony on Sunday evening, the Full House star tweeted, “Disappointed to hear that @bobsaget will be LEFT OUT of the In Memoriam segment tonight @TheTonyawards. Bob was brilliant in The Drowsy Chaperone & Hand to God. Come on @BroadwayLeague and @TheWing ! Do the right thing! Bob loved Broadway and I know the community loved him.” Stamos went on to encourage his 1.6 million followers to “make some noise about this,” in addition to “send our love and good wishes to the hosts @ArianaDeBose, @JulianneHough and my buddy @DarrenCriss and all the well-deserved nominees.”
The day earlier than the Tonys, the actor additionally shared on Instagram how he is been dealing with Saget’s demise over the previous couple of months and that he is not able to say goodbye to his buddy simply but. “I’m not ready to accept that he’s gone—I’m not going to say goodbye yet. I’m going to imagine him out there, still on the road, doing what he loves with all his heart and humor. He’s standing on stage, killing! Another two-hour set in front of a couple hundred of the luckiest people on the planet. They’re laughing so hard, they weep.” Stamos continued, “On his way to the hotel, he calls his beautiful, loving wife, Kelly. He says he feels 26 again, alive! Then asks her to fix up a picture he wants to post. She tells him it doesn’t need fixing, and tells him how handsome he is. He tells her he loves her with every bit of his heart. And when he gets to the hotel to put his head on the pillow, he misses his daughters, his family, his friends. God, he loves us all so much. And he goes to sleep dreaming of when we’ll all meet again – and he’s smiling. I know in my heart he’s smiling, still hearing the laughter from a few hours before.” The Big Shot star concluded, “I’m just not ready to say goodbye yet. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe.”
In February, Saget’s household shared in a press release that, “The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma. They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.” They concluded, “As we continue to mourn together, we ask everyone to remember the love and laughter that Bob brought to this world, and the lessons he taught us all: to be kind to everyone, to let the people you love know you love them, and to face difficult times with hugs and laughter.”
