Actress Candace Cameron Bure, known for her role as DJ Tanner on ‘Full House,’ pays tribute to her late friend and co-star Bob Saget. She said her mission was to “hug like Bob”.
On “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday, Bure told host Ainsley Earhardt that she has been doing well since news of her death was announced.

“It’s been a little over a month, and there are days that are great and there are days that hit you,” she said.
“I want to remember Bob and the kind, loving, amazing person he was.”
Bure, an outspoken Christian, has designed sweatshirts that read “Love like Jesus, hug like Bob,” which are available online.
“I did it really for selfish reasons because I love Jesus,” she said. “He’s the best example of humanity and sacrifice. And then there’s no one who kisses like Bob, and I’ll always remember that as a big part of his legacy.”
Bure explained that 100% of the proceeds from sweatshirt sales will go to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, a cause Saget raised millions of dollars for after his sister, Gay, died of the disease.
She said she wanted to continue Saget’s legacy of showing love and hugging those in her life.

“He was so emotionally available, and he always, always let you know he loved you,” she said. “Every text, every phone call, every moment in person. He gave you the biggest hug and he always let you know how much he cared about you.”
“It was an incredibly powerful gift that he gave,” she said. “And that’s what I want to continue. I want to hug like Bob.”
