UPDATE: The shirts are now for sale! There's a sweatshirt, a hoodie, and a t-shirt. I ordered a t-shirt. Visit huglikebob.com to order through The Shop Forward.
It's been over a week since the sudden passing of Bob Saget, and I am still getting emotional reading all of the posts from his close friends and Full House family. Earlier today Candace Cameron Bure posted a picture with Dave Coulier, saying they spent the weekend together telling funny stories and reminiscing about Bob.
She also showed off the sweatshirt she had made in Bob's honor, and said she would be sending some to Bob's wife Kelly Rizzo and her family.
The sweatshirt says, "Love Like Jesus, Hug Like Bob Saget". One of the common themes throughout all of the posts about him - Bob gave the best hugs and he wasn't afraid to tell people that he loved them.
So cute, right?
Fans flooded the comments section asking her to sell them, with the proceeds benefiting the Scleroderma Research Foundation, a charity Bob supported for many years. His sister died from the disease and he sat on the board and hosted their Cool Comedy - Hot Cuisine event each year.
Candace just updated her post to say they're working on getting them made... I'm totally going to buy one. I think most of us are usually pretty unaffected by celebrity deaths. They're sad, especially when it's someone young, but for some reason this one has been especially emotional for a lot of people. Not just because he was "America's Dad" and we loved him on television, but because the outpouring of love from those who knew him best really struck a nerve.
I was shocked when I saw the news... "No! Not Bob Saget!"
Then reading all of the tributes from his friends in the comedy world, from Full House cast members, listening to John Mayer and Jeffrey Ross talk about him when they went to LAX to pick up his car... It's clear he was truly a good human being who really cared about people. Even the radio people I know who had interviewed him shared their pictures and everyone said what a cool guy he was... Such a sad loss.
Anyone else feeling this?
