The duo – both longtime friends of Bob’s – were pictured hugging as he stood behind an open hearse, which carried the Full House leader’s coffin.

Both of their faces were covered with black masks.

They wore dark suits and appeared to be kissing for a while.

The 58-year-old actor and musician was seen spending time at the home Bob shared with his wife Kelly Rizzo before his death.

The couple – like others who surrendered after his death – appeared stoic.

Stamos was greeted outside the house by Kelly, 42, who greeted him with a hug.

He was wearing a mask when they first met, but was seen without it in his car looking devastated.

Stamos tweeted the morning of the funeral: “Today will be the hardest day of my life…”

FAREWELL APPROPRIATE

Many of Bob’s co-stars and friends attended Friday’s funeral, which was held at the Mount Sinai Memorial Parks at Mortuaries at Tanach Chapel.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jeffrey Ross, Mike Binder, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Lori Loughlin were among the familiar faces spotted in the crowd.

Judd Apatow, Marc Maron, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock and Seth Green also attended.

Mayer helped carry the casket during the service.

A source on site said Kelly gave an emotional speech that drew laughs calling Bob “Batman” and describing her late husband as her hero.

She said she was honored to be his wife, adding that he was her biggest critic in the kitchen and her biggest supporter overall, according to the insider.

The source added: “She also joked that he didn’t know exactly what she was doing for a living, she was very quiet and made the mourners laugh, but burst into tears towards the end then. that she was expressing her love for Bob.”

Paul Pressler, former president of Walt Disney Attractions, also spoke at the funeral, the source said.

He called the America’s Funniest Home Videos host a “brother,” giving an expletive-filled speech in which he explained everything Bob taught him over the years.

Bob’s daughters, whom he shared with his ex-wife Sherri Kramer, also took to the podium to offer their own praise.

Ahead of the funeral, many of the mourners who attended the funeral were seen at Kelly and Bob’s home in Brentwood, Los Angeles.

THE NEWS

The sheriff’s department and fire department responded to Bob’s hotel in Orlando around 4 p.m. on January 9 after Bob was found unresponsive inside the room by hotel staff.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and is believed to have died of a heart attack.

Bob’s death was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call regarding an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.

They added: “The man was identified as Robert Saget and pronounced dead at the scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”

Bob’s family later released a statement to Us Weekly saying: “We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today.

“He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter.”

Bob and Kelly got married in 2018.
