Jimmy Kimmel’s tribute to Saget
Between tearful voices, Jimmy Kimmel talked about his friend Bob Saget. He was sorry for the fact that he couldn’t deliver the monologue and disrupted the shots because of uncontrollable tears.
In his monologue for Saget, Kimmel delivered, “If you’ve read anything about Bob online last night if you saw any of the many thoughts from people who knew him personally, a word that came up a lot was ‘the sweetest’,”
He continued, “Bob was the sweetest, he was the sweetest man, and the reason people wrote that is because it’s true. It’s the best word — if you had to pick one word to describe him, that was it: the sweetest.”
“I have so many wonderfully kind and supportive texts, email calls from Bob. He always had a compliment. He would write sometimes just to tell me he loved me, and I know he did that for many people,” he said.
Kimmel shared about how he went through past mails of Saget after hearing about the demise. He remembered how Bob was a caring man who frequently checked up on his family when they were sick and in hospital.
He then extended his condolences to Saget’s wife, Kelly, and his children and finally to everyone who knew or was friends with the comedian.
