“Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has,” Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen said in remembrance of Saget in a statement obtained by Page Six.

A widowed Rizzo spoke of being “shattered” by the passing of her husband.

“My whole heart. Bob was my absolute everything,” the lifestyle expert told Page Six on Monday. “I am so completely shattered and in disbelief. I am so deeply touched by the outpouring of love and tribute from our friends, family, his fans and his peers.”
