Bob Saget’s widow recognized the one-year anniversary of his death with an effusive essay remembering him as a great comedian whose top priority was helping others.

Kelly Rizzo, who married Saget in 2018, is grateful for the support she continues to receive following the star’s sudden death, she wrote in the piece for People.

“Bob changed my life just by being the person who he was,” Rizzo wrote. “Complicated, brilliant, compassionate, hilarious, neurotic, opinionated, loving, adorable, complex, determined, loyal and sweet. He taught me so much about how to be a better person, how to love ourselves and others more completely.”

Best known for his “Full House” portrayal of patriarch Danny Tanner and for his racy standup sets, Saget died in Florida at age 65 after suffering head trauma in an accident, his family said.
