Bob Saget was laid to rest Friday in Los Angeles after his untimely death this week at the age of 65.
The comic book and TV star was mourned by his wife Kelly Rizzo and a host of celebrity friends who paid their respects at Mount Sinai Memorial Park at Forest Lawn Cemetery, his final resting place.
