'Full House' Cast Gathers for Bob Saget's Funeral

The private funeral draws hundreds of the late comedian's family members and friends, including John Stamos, John Mayer, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock as well as Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

AceShowbiz - Bob Saget's loved ones have gathered to bid their final farewell to the comedian. "Full House" stars were among those who turned up at a private funeral of the late actor on Friday, January 14.

Though the service was a small one with only close family and friends, it drew at least 300 mourners, according to TMZ. Among those who were seen at the funeral in Los Angeles were Bob's close friends John Mayer and Dave Coulier, who served as pallbearers.

Other pallbearers during the ceremony included John Stamos, Norman Lear, Jeff Ross, Judd Apatow and Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos. Bob's "Full House" children Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure as well as Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen were also in attendance.

Other guests included Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock, Seth Green, Jimmy Kimmel and wife Molly McNearney as well as Jonathan Silverman. John Stamos' wife Caitlin McHugh and Lori's husband Mossimo Giannulli were also there.

After gathering at his home in Brentwood, his family travelled to Mt. Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in a fleet of three black cars driven by the Kardashians' favored limo service, Ascot. Following the Jewish service, guests drove to Jeff Franklin's home for an evening reception.

Ahead of the funeral, John tweeted on Friday morning, "Today will be the hardest day of my life. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."

One day prior, the Jesse Katsopolis depicter lamented missing his dear friend Bob. "I miss getting a text from him right now. Me answering. Him saying he's too tired to respond. Me saying, 'Then why'd you text me so early?' " he wrote.

Bob's widow Kelly Rizzo echoed the sentiment as she responded to John's tweet, "I feel this John. ALL day is impossible. And I feel this part too. Bob would text me a question and I'd respond right away and he'd say 'I'm busy I can't talk' and I'd say… 'hey! You texted ME!' "

Bob was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando on January 9. The official cause of death is yet to be revealed.
