The Full House cast sticks together through thick and thin.

Series alums Candace Cameron Bure, Dave Coulier, Andrea Barber, and Scott Weinger opened up about how they've come together after costar Bob Saget's recent passing while at the first-ever 90s Con on Saturday.

"We pull together as a family during moments like this," Coulier, 62, told PEOPLE. "We've pretty much experienced everything that a real family can experience. Getting picked up, getting canceled, marriages, divorces, births, deaths. I mean, it's pretty much what every family goes through. And we've stuck together through all of it."

Coulier continued, "It's incredible to have a group of people in our lives like this, where we know we're going to get that instant support system. It's pretty special."

On January 9, Saget was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, just one day after performing a stand-up show outside of Jacksonville. He was 65.

Saget's long career included playing America's favorite TV dad, Danny Tanner, on Full House and its sequel series Fuller House. John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Jodie Sweetin, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen also starred in the original cast.

Bure, 45, told PEOPLE that the iconic bunch all "genuinely love each other.'"

"We were like magic in a bottle when they put us together," the actress said. "You just can't fake chemistry. We genuinely are family. So, that's just it."

Chiming in, Barber, 45, added: "It never felt like work either. Going to work never felt like working. You're with your best friends."

"After every take, we would go out for dinner. The whole cast would go," the 46-year-old shared. "We would go out for dinner and we'd usually go to some fancy restaurant. The check would come and Dave would be like, 'Bob, you've got this. No, no. I don't want to hear it.' It was really fun because we were kids, but we got to go out with all these grownups and go to dinner. It was really awesome."

Bure, Coulier, Barber, and Weinger all came together to make an appearance at the first-ever 90s Con — an event in Hartford, Connecticut, that hosted iconic casts and musical groups from the decade. Sharing what they were most excited about before appearing on their show's panel, Coulier said: "I think being together with each other."

"We're going to dinner tonight," said Weinger as Barber added, "We haven't spent this much time together since the show [Fuller House] wrapped."

In addition to the Full House cast, several stars from other TV shows and movies such as Boy Meets World, Hocus Pocus, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Family Matters, and Party of Five were in attendance. Members from *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and TLC also took part in the March 11-13 event.
