She continued, “You taught me at such a young age to feel deeply. You were never afraid or ashamed to share your emotions, cry, love, laugh and say it out loud. We’ve always been so deeply connected since the day we met when I was 10 years old,” she added. “You were not just any father, but one of my best friends in life. This hurts like nothing I’ve ever felt before.’
Cameron Bure also joined her former Full House castmates to honor Saget following news of his death, in a joint message with John Stamos, Dave Coulier, Jodie Sweetin, Lori Loughlin, Andrea Barber and Scott Weinger, as well as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
