“[ Norm Macdonald is] one of the most important people in my life and one of the sweetest,” Bob Saget , his voice breaking as he held back tears. “We loved each other,' adding, 'I can’t accept that he’s gone, and that’s the shock we’re going through'
The 'Full House' star opened up about the severe heartbreak he is experiencing with the passing of his dear pal and colleague.
“I can’t accept that he’s gone, and that’s the shock we’re going through,” Saget said, warning listeners he was just going to ramble to hopefully find some amount of relief. “Sixty-one. It’s a sin for all of us that he’s gone. He cared about people a lot. And he felt the human condition so deeply that it affected him in different ways.”
Saget said that although Macdonald never told him he was sick, “I felt it. I knew something was wrong. I think a lot of us felt it. His mind was still amazing. I had been texting with him. And I knew that the last month was a turn in whatever was going on.”
Continued Saget, “Two weeks ago, he texted me, ‘How are you? What are you doing? Are you doing stand-up?’ And I answered him with much too many words. And then I didn’t hear back. And then last week I got a text and just said, ‘I love you.’ I didn’t say much back. I just said, ‘I love you, Norm.’ And that was my last communication with him.” headtopics.com
“But he didn’t mince words, and he didn’t mince emotions,” Saget added. “One of the gifts of my life is that he loved me and that I loved him. He made me better as a comedian. Our friendship was really very deep.”Listen to Saget’s entire remembrance below.Read more: Hollywood Reporter »
