Kelly Rizzo Wears Husband Bob Saget's Wedding Ring on a Necklace as She Mourns Him at His Funeral

The actor was laid to rest in Los Angeles on Friday, with a group of his closest family and friends in attendance

Kelly Rizzo is ensuring that Bob Saget remains close to her heart.

On Friday, the beloved actor was laid to rest in Los Angeles. The private funeral came just five days after the 65-year-old comedian was found dead in his Florida hotel room on Sunday.

While it was undoubtedly a difficult day for Rizzo — who met Saget in 2015 and married him three years later in 2018 — she found a sweet way to keep her late husband close at Friday's service.

The Eat Travel Rock blogger, 42, threaded a gold chain through her late husband's wedding ring and wore the sentimental piece around her neck.

In addition to Rizzo, Saget's private funeral was attended by his closest friends and family.

His Full House costars, including John Stamos and his wife Caitlin McHugh, Dave Coulier, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, were all in attendance.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed Saget's death on Twitter Sunday after deputies were called just after 4 p.m. local time. On Monday, authorities announced that Saget's autopsy was completed. The report indicated that there is currently no evidence of foul play or drug use.

Following news of Saget's death, Rizzo released a statement about her husband.

She continued, "When the time is right and when this news is not as raw, I look forward to sharing more of Bob with the world. Sharing how much he meant to me, all of those around him, and how much all of his fans and friends meant to him as well. Thank you for respecting my privacy at this time."

Mike Young, Saget's close friend and touring partner, recently told PEOPLE that the actor's commitment to his wife was evident.

"It was a great relationship and they were perfect for each other because they're just two neurotic people living under one roof," Young said. "I mean, they're awesome together and they're hilarious together and she's like, the perfect person that could handle Bob."

"Bob was so happy and he talked about her all the time," he continued. "It hurts because as much as she has to share him with the whole world, she knows damn well that he was hers and that was it and he was all about her. He loves her to death."

In addition to Rizzo, Saget is also survived by his three daughters — Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29 — whom he shared with ex-wife Sherri Kramer.
