During his podcast, Dave Coulier shared a heartbreaking voicemail from his close friend, the late Bob Saget, to remind others to show up for the people they love in the same way Bob did.

The actor welcomed Bob’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, to Full House Rewind recently, and the two reminisced about their time with Bob. Dave and Bob met over 45 years ago when they were both doing standup in Detroit and they “became instant friends.” They went on to star in Full House and its sequel Fuller House, all the time referring to each other as family.

As Dave closed his March 29th podcast installment, he played a recording that Bob left the day Dave’s brother, Danny, took his own life.

“When my brother Danny took his own life in 2021, Bob was the first person who called me and left a voicemail. It was an audio hug,” he said. “I love Bob, and he loved me, too.”

“I’d like to close this episode by playing that voicemail message that Bob left for me,” he continued. “Maybe someday you can pass along the same kind of compassion for someone you love.”

Bob Saget Offered Dave Coulier Unconditional Love And Friendship

In the audio clip, Bob Saget was noticeably emotional, and he assured Dave Coulier that he was available whenever Dave needed a friend.

“I know it’s not a time to call. But I’m right here 24/7 right now, right here,” Bob said. “I love you Dave, and I’m so sorry Dave. I loved him. I’m so sorry.”

“So I’m here. I’m here 24/7, just call me any time. Doesn’t have to be now,” he continued. “It can be a week, whenever. I can just talk to you and listen. I love you so much.”

Bob Saget died from a head trauma on Jan. 9, 2022. He left behind Kelly and his three daughters, Aubrey, Jennifer, and Lara. He was 65.
