Kelly Rizzo, widow of late comedian Bob Saget, honored him on what would have been his 67th birthday.
On Wednesday, Rizzo, 43, wished Saget “Happy Birthday” on her Instagram page.
“This truly never gets less weird or surreal. But the gratitude grows every single day. I’ll never stop feeling like the luckiest person on Earth to have had the privilege of spending 6 years with this amazing man,” she wrote in the caption of a photo of the pair.
Rizzo said she felt reassured Saget made the most of his life while he was on Earth.

“Life is short and we never know how long we are going to be here. And I still take comfort in the fact that Bob used every minute on this planet to enjoy life to the fullest and make the world a better place,” she added.
Continuing, she said, “To celebrate Bob on his birthday, do as he would do…tell all the people you love that you love them, preferably in a very long & verbose voice text dictated by Siri.”
Rizzo concluded her post by thanking her followers “for still loving Bob so much.”
“I’ve learned recently about grief, something about the home that you shared sometimes can be very triggering … even if you had wonderful memories there, even if it was such a positive experience — which it was, I mean he loved our house — and it was such a positive memory, but there’s something about when somebody passes, the home itself can be a situation. So that’s why it was nice to get a fresh start,” she explained.
