How Candace Cameron Bure’s Faith Helps Her Handle Grief

By Movieguide® Contributor

Candace Cameron Bure is sharing how her faith has helped her deal with the death of friend and co-star Bob Saget. 

“I don’t question my faith,” the actress told Us Weekly. “I believe with all of my heart that God knows everything that’s happening and there’s nothing that catches him by surprise. He doesn’t make mistakes.”

Bure said that, while Saget’s passing didn’t shake her faith, it did leave her searching for answers. 

“Of course, I’m gonna have a lot of questions when I get to talk to God face-to-face one day,” she explained. “It always makes me cling closer to God…I mean, I love God in the good times, but I’m so grateful that he’s there in the difficult times.

“Because the Bible says, God loves and brings comfort to those who are brokenhearted. He’s close to those who are brokenhearted. And I definitely feel his presence in those times and that’s comforting.”

The actress shared that she has also grown closer to Saget’s widow, Kelly Rizzo, while they grieve. 

“We are all there for her and she’s taken it one day at a time,” Bure said. “But she’s a strong, strong woman. And her faith is strong as well.”

Candace Cameron Bure is honoring late friend and co-star Bob Saget with a new line of sweatshirts that will benefit the Scleroderma Research Foundation. 

“It’s been a little over a month, and there’s days that are great and there’s days that just hits you,” she said while appearing on Fox News. “I want to remember Bob and what a kind and loving and amazing person that he was.” 

The sweatshirts Bure designed have “Love like Jesus, Hug like Bob” printed on them. 

“I did it really for selfish reasons because I love Jesus,” the actress explained. “He’s the best example of humanity and sacrifice. And then there’s nobody that hugs like Bob, and I will always remember that as a huge part of his legacy.” 

100 percent of the profits from the sweatshirts will go to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, one of Saget’s favorite causes. The actor raised millions of dollars for the foundation after his sister passed away due to the disease.
