Bob's wife Kelly Rizzo helped launch the tribute, after being encouraged by Jim to "keep it short".

While Chris kept the program light-hearted with memorable quips, including saying: "I think it’s sad that (he) had to die to get Jim Carrey back on stage. If this is the only way we gonna see you perform, I'm gonna kill Eddie Murphy next week," other comments were heartbreaking.

"And he gets back to the hotel, and he puts his head on the pillow, and he misses us. And he dreams of seeing us all again one day. And he's smiling," he said.

Jim, meanwhile, said: "Bob wasn’t something that was taken away from us. He was something that was given to us... You created a cathedral of love in this world, and that was your life, Bob Saget. A cathedral of love, a cathedral of laughter, goodness, light."
