"Nice guys DO finish first. Beyond his considerable talents, Bob Saget was a kind and gentle presence that always made everyone in the room feel at ease. A sweeter man there never was. And a wicked sense of humour that would make you howl with laughter. God bless you, Bob," tweeted Rob Schneider. 

Bob's been touring throughout the state of Florida, including in Orlando. The tour started in September and was supposed to take him through May.
