Tributes continue to pour in memory of comedian Bob Saget, who died Sunday. The actor, who appeared as Danny Tanner on ‘Full House,” and hosted the long-running ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos,’ was 65.

Following news of his death, Saget’s Full House co-stars, which ran from 1987-1995, and later a Netflix spin-off titled ‘Fuller House,’ released a joint statement, praising the late comic on social media.

“Thirty-five years ago, we came together as a TV family, but we became a real family. And now we grieve as a family. Bob made us laugh until we cried. Now our tears flow in sadness, but also with gratitude for all the beautiful memories of our sweet, kind, hilarious, cherished Bob. He was a brother to us guys, a father to us girls and a friend to all of us. Bob, we love you dearly. We ask in Bob’s honor, hug the people you love. No one gave better hugs than Bob. ~ John, Dave, Candace, Jodie, Lori, Andrea, Scott, Jeff, Ashley and Mary-Kate.”
