Kelly Rizzo is mourning the death of her husband Bob Saget.

Rizzo broke her silence on her husband's death and spoke about her love for the late comedic actor in a statement obtained by People. The journalist also expressed her gratitude for the love and support that their family has received from Saget's colleagues and fans.

"My whole heart. Bob was my absolute everything," said Rizzo, 42. "I am so completely shattered and in disbelief. I am so deeply touched by the outpouring of love and tribute from our friends, family, his fans and his peers."

She added, "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."

Saget was found dead Sunday in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida. The "Full House" alum was 65. The official cause and manner of death have not yet been released.

An anonymous insider told People Monday that Rizzo "is in shock and processing everything" after Saget's passing but is "appreciative and touched by the outpouring of love from friends, family, his peers and fans."

Rizzo talked to her late husband "in the early morning hours on Sunday" after his stand-up show the night before near Jacksonville, Florida, another source told the outlet.

Saget "was so excited coming off of a great show and he sounded really happy," the insider added.

The "Fuller House" star was scheduled to fly home the following day. However, Rizzo didn't hear from him, so she called the hotel. Security was sent up to the actor's room, where he was discovered dead, according to the source.

"Kelly is completely devastated. Bob was her best friend and the love of her life. They were so happy together and so happy that they found each other," the tipster continued. "They had the best marriage and they connected on such a deep level. She doesn't know how to go on without him."

Saget and Rizzo met in 2015 and married three years later. According to the insider, the couple had the same sense of humor, and the late comedian was very supportive of her company, Eat Travel Rock. The source also shared that when Rizzo did her cooking videos, Saget would often serve as her producer, filming her or doing funny voiceovers.

"They laughed all the time. Bob's favorite dish that Kelly made was her Italian chili. They loved to travel (and eat!) but they were also homebodies who loved to stay in together at their home in L.A.," the source added.

Saget is survived by Rizzo and his daughters Aubrey, 34, Lara, 32, and Jennifer, 29, with ex-wife Sherri Kramer.
