Bob Saget’s grieving widow Kelly Rizzo expressed her gratitude for all the “love and support” she has received since her husband’s death almost two months ago in a touching post on social media.
“I just wanted to take a second to say to everybody that it has not gone unnoticed. I have been incredibly grateful and appreciative of all of you for the love and support,” Rizzo said Tuesday in a series of videos on her Instagram Stories.
“I have had people who were strangers that now have become friends on Instagram. So many people have shared their stories with me of the loss that you’ve been through, and you’ve poured out your heart, and it’s just really kind that you’ve tried to help me by sharing your stories,” she said.
“Even though I’m still very new to this world, I feel I’ve had kind of a crash course in it. Especially doing it very publicly, it adds a whole other level that takes it to this different place that you understand in a certain way,” she added.
Despite her grief, the “Eat Travel Rock” blogger said she has “been doing my best to try to even engage with people and respond to comments and just try to tell everyone how thankful and grateful and appreciative I am of everything that you’ve all done to try to help me through this incredibly difficult time.
“But I can assure you that the kindness you all have shown has been a little bright spot and has made this a bit easier. And the thing that has really helped is seeing how much you all loved Bob because this outpouring is something, like, I don’t think anybody has ever seen,” she said.
