On Sunday, Bob Saget was found dead inside of an Orlando, Florida hotel room at the age of 65. News of Saget’s passing was met with an outpouring of tribute posts, including from those who starred with him on Full House.

“I am broken. I am gutted,” tweeted Saget’s Full House co-star John Stamos, who played Uncle Jesse. “I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.”

Dave Coulier, who played Uncle Joey on Full House, simply wrote, “I’ll never let go, brother. Love you,” alongside a photo of the two men.

Candace Cameron Bure, who starred as Saget’s onscreen daughter D.J., posted on Twitter: “I don’t know what to say. I have no words. Bob was one of the best humans beings I’ve ever known in my life. I loved him so much.”

Andrea Barber, who played the Tanner’s neighbor Kimmy Gibler, wrote an extensive tribute that read in part: “He had the biggest heart of anyone in Hollywood. He gave the biggest hugs. I am gutted that I will never be able to hug him again. Bob ended every text, every interaction with ‘Love you.’ Didn’t matter how long or short we’d been apart. He loved so deeply and so fiercely. And he never hesitated to tell you just how much you meant to him.”

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who together portrayed Michelle Tanner, issued a written statement calling Saget the “most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has.”

Among the other celebrity tributes…

“Bob Saget was as lovely a human as he was funny. And to my mind, he was hilarious. We were close friends and I could not have loved him more,” wrote legendary TV writer and producer Norman Lear.

“I’m so shocked at @bobsaget’s passing,” added Joel McHale. “One of the most kind & thoughtful people I’ve ever come across & he just happened to be one of the funniest on the planet. I will miss you so much Bob. Love you dear friend.”

“Oh god. Bob Saget!!! The loveliest man. I was his TV daughter for one season and he was always so kind and protective,” recounted former co-star Kat Dennings. Meanwhile, Jon Stewart called Saget “Just the funniest and nicest…”
