In another slide, the pair appeared to be enjoying themselves at a restaurant as they snapped a seafood platter. Speaking about the milestone, the actress wrote:
“Happy birthday🎂. This really never gets any less weird or surreal. But the gratitude grows day by day. I will never stop feeling like the luckiest person on earth to have had the privilege of spending six years with this amazing man.”
She continued, “Life is short and we never know how long we’re going to be here. And I still take comfort in the fact that Bob used every minute on this planet to live life to the fullest and make the world a better place.”
The chef personality then urged her fans to join her in honoring her late husband: “To celebrate Bob on his birthday, do what he would do. Tell the people you love that you love them, preferably with long, detailed voice text dictated to you by Siri. I’m going to celebrate it today with a very cold extra dirty blue cheese olives (IYKYK) martini.”
The actress concluded with the sweet hope that her late husband would be “celebrating up there with a giant cigar (his favorite thing), a martini and a few dozen oysters while sitting on the beach,” before adding: “He would like that. Thank you all for still loving Bob so much. 🎂🎂🎂🎂❤❤❤❤.”

Because of this, the chef sold her and the late Saget’s house
Rizzo’s moving memorial post comes two months after the 43-year-old announced her plans to sell the home she and her late partner lived in while he was alive.
During an appearance on The Tamron Hall Show, the actress explained the reason for this heartbreaking decision. she explained that it was a necessary decision as it was part of the “gradual steps” she was taking to move on.
Rizzo admitted the “home situation” felt strange, noting that she learned something new about grief that influenced her decision to sell her house.
In her words, “What I’ve learned about grief is that sometimes, even if you had wonderful memories there, even if it was such a positive experience as it was, something about the home you share can be very triggering.”
The Unfiltered with Kelly Rizzo star added that while Saget loved her house and it was “such a positive memory,” she realized that every time a person walked by, the house itself became a “situation.” could become.
However, Rizzo revealed that she had remodeled her new home so that Saget’s presence was still felt. “If you go into my new house, there are pictures of him everywhere. I say it’s almost like a bobsled museum, but you know he’s still everywhere.”
