In a poignant revelation on "The Jennifer Hudson Show," John Stamos, widely recognized for his role in "Full House," shared heartfelt memories and enduring grief over losing his close friend and co-star, Bob Saget. Several months after Saget's unexpected death, Stamos's emotions remain raw as he continues to honour the legacy of the beloved comedian and actor.

During the emotional interview aired on Wednesday, Stamos, with evident emotion, recounted how Saget made a lasting impact by never missing a chance to express his love and appreciation for those around him. "He never left anything on the table," Stamos reflected.

The actor stressed the importance of keeping Saget's warmhearted legacy alive, emphasizing the depth of care Saget consistently showed to his friends and family. Further sharing personal anecdotes, Stamos revealed an intimate moment he experienced the night Saget passed away.

Seeking a sign from his late friend, Stamos recounted an encounter in his backyard with a hummingbird that he interpreted as a comforting message. This encounter, symbolically significant to Stamos, reminded him of past moments when animals seemed to personify his late parents, a sentiment shared within his family.

According to Stamos, the hummingbird bore a resonant symbol, a red hue reminiscent of his mother's attire and hair—conveying reassurance and peace. He captured this poignant interaction on his phone, interpreting it as an affirmation that Saget's spirit was at rest and a reminder of the kindness and love Saget embodied throughout his life.

Stamos's touching narrative not only offered a glimpse into his profound bond with Saget but also highlighted the universal themes of love and loss that resonate with many who have experienced the passing of a loved one.

Bob Saget, who carved a niche in the hearts of millions as a widowed father on the hit sitcom "Full House," passed away on January 9, 2022, at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, at age 65. The tragedy of his death was compounded by the later confirmation from his family that he had succumbed to head trauma.

As fans and friends continue to navigate the void left by Saget's departure, Stamos's words serve as a poignant reminder of Saget's enduring influence and the heartfelt bonds he formed off-screen.
