We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences," Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen said in a statement.

Norman Lear also took to Twitter to honor Saget, sharing a picture and writing, "Bob Saget was as lovely a human as he was funny. And to my mind, he was hilarious. We were close friends and I could not have loved him more."
