Coulier, 64, known for his role as Joey Gladstone in the hit ’80s and ’90s show Full House, opened up about the emotional support his co-star provided after Coulier’s brother, Dan, died by suicide. With Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, joining him, they reminisced about the actor, who played Gladstones’ brother, Danny Tanner, and his caring nature and their friendship during the latest episode of his podcast, Rewind.

“When my brother, Danny. took his own life in 2021, Bob was the first person who called me and left a voicemail. It was an audio hug. I love Bob and he loved me too. I’d like to close this episode by playing that voicemail message that Bob left for me. Maybe someday you can pass along the same kind of compassion for someone you love.” Coulier revealed. The voicemail, proof of Saget’s warmth and empathy, was played for the audience: “I know it’s not a time to call, but I’m right here 24/7 right now, right here,” said Saget, his voice filled with emotion. “I love you Dave, and I’m so sorry, Dave. I loved him. I’m so sorry. So I’m here. I’m here 24/7, just call me anytime. Doesn’t have to be now, it can be a week, whenever. I can just talk to you and listen. I love you so much.”

Saget, who sadly passed away in January of 2022 from head trauma, was described by Coulier as “the biggest hugger I ever knew,” and his reflection on their friendship highlighted their connection off screen, as well as Saget’s unwavering kindness. “Don’t miss an opportunity to tell the people you care about that you love them,” Coulier advised, encouraging his listeners to express love and compassion freely.
