Musician John Mayer and funnyman Jeff Ross did one last favor for their late friend Bob Saget who died Sunday at the age of 65. Picking up the late actor’s car from LAX on Wednesday where Saget had left it before going on his standup comedy tour.
Going live on Instagram, John Mayer and Jeffery Ross opened up about their friendship with Bob Saget.
“I’ve just never known a human being on this earth who could give that much love — individually and completely — to that many people, in a way that made each person feel like he was a main character in their life and they were a main character in his life,” Mayer said as he drove down California’s 405 Freeway. “Everyone is so aware how universal Bob’s love for people was.”
“Because all we have is the pain of his going, and we don’t have to worry about the accounting,” Mayer continued. “The affairs are in order in terms of not having to wonder how Bob felt about us.”
“Bob had every excuse under the sun to be cynical, to be upset, to be distrusting of fate,” Mayer explained. “His joy and his innocence in the face of a life that really took from him in places was his middle finger to it all. … He had every reason to be the guy in the back of the bar, bitter. … (Instead) his protest against the cruelty of these things was that he was going to smile, and spread love, and be childlike, and be innocent, and be loving, even after what he knew could happen in this world.”
