A new Bob Saget tribute special is streaming on Netflix, and with that legendary comedian back in the conversation, some of his closest friends gathered online to share their thoughts on his unexpected passing. Back in January, Saget died at the age of 65. The news was a big blow for those who were close with Saget, as described by his Full House co-stars Lori Loughlin and John Stamos, as well as fellow friends John Mayer and Jeff Ross.

In light of Dirty Daddy: The Bob Saget Tribute hitting Netflix, the four had taken to Instagram Live (via TMZ) and shared Saget memories. While the loss has obviously been very hard for each of them, Loughlin finds it touching to see just how much Saget’s passing had affected his many fans. Loughlin says she has been regularly approached by strangers expressing their sorrow over losing Saget which she attributes to his status as “everyone’s dad,” based on playing one of television’s most iconic fathers as Danny Tanner on Full House.

Stamos explains how Saget had been in contact with them so frequently that there’s still a part of them that expects for the late comic to reach out.

In the Instagram chat, Jeff Ross mentioned how Bob Saget really wanted his own Netflix special. While he has been given that honor posthumously with the Netflix tribute, Ross finds it to be bittersweet as he feels Saget would be happy with the special. Ross also mentioned how the proceeds raised from the special were donated to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, something that was very important to Saget, who’d lost his sister to scleroderma.
