Unbelievably, for both his fans and those closest to him, it has officially been a year since Bob Saget unexpectedly and tragically passed away, on 9 January 2022.

Among adoring fans, friends, and his three daughters, Aubrey, Lara and Jennifer, he left behind his wife Kelly Rizzo – they married in 2018 – who is now reflecting on the past year without her husband.
