Candace Cameron Bure Shares Lesson She Learned From ‘TV Dad’ Bob Saget

By Movieguide® Contributor

While recording her podcast with singer Katy Nichole, Candace Cameron Bure shared an important lesson that she learned from her friendship with the late Bob Saget. 

“You were talking about not letting that moment pass without telling someone that you love them and kinds things about them or whatever words you want to share,” Bure said about the message in Nichole’s new song. “It often reminds me of my very good friend Bob Saget, because he was also that person, and he always told you that he loved you, no matter what.” 

“Since he passed over a year ago, it’s been a constant reminder on my mind, and when you have people like that in your life, you realize how valuable it is,” Bure continued. “So, I’m grateful for that relationship to show me how much that means and that I can pass it forward.” 

While people can often miss their opportunity to share with others how much they mean to them, Bure never had this problem with Saget because Saget would always start that conversation. Now, a year and a half after his passing, Bure seeks to emulate that outpouring of love in all of her relationships. 

Bure memorialized Saget’s legendary outpouring of love, selling sweatshirts to benefit the Scleroderma Research Foundation that read “Love like Jesus, Hug like Bob,” following his death. 

Many people may not have expected Saget to have such a tender and loving heart given the raunchiness of his stand-up routines, but the kindness of his heart is what allowed Bure and Saget to stay friends once their time together on FULL HOUSE came to a close. 

As Movieguide® previously reported: 

“You know, if people see Bob’s stand-up, it’s not family-friendly stand-up,” the actress told TODAY SHOW host Hoda Kotb. “So, that would always be a question, like, ‘How can you guys be friends?’ It’s like, well, I grew up with Bob, so I understand his sense of humor. I, too, have a sense of humor. 

“But I can also separate that person that’s on the stage making jokes to get the laugh and the real heart behind a person and their love and their friendship and their kindness,” Bure continued. 

Bure said that Saget respected her faith and boundaries regarding their different views. 

“He would invite me to things all the time in the stand-up world, but then say, ‘You’re invited but don’t come. Don’t come because I know you, this will cross a line for you. You’re not gonna enjoy it. You’re not gonna laugh. So, I love you, you can come if you want to, but don’t come.’”
