Sure enough, it didn't take long for the rest of the world to do just that. Almost immediately after the shocking news was announced, John Stamos rushed to Twitter to pay tribute to his Full House co-star. "I am broken. I am gutted," the 58-year-old star revealed. "I am in complete and utter shock. I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby." Shortly after, fellow Full House co-stars joined in. "I don't know what to say," Candace Cameron Bure announced in a statement online. "I have no words."

From fellow co-star Dave Coulier (above) to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Hollywood is, no doubt, feeling the loss. "Bob was the most loving, compassionate, and generous man," the notoriously private twins revealed to TODAY. "We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has. We are thinking of his daughters, wife, and family and are sending our condolences." We couldn't agree more. Our thoughts go out to family and fans alike, who Saget so effortlessly made smile, time and time again. Fuller House - and the comedy world, will never be the same.
