Bob’s private funeral took place in Los Angeles just five days after the actor was found dead in his Florida hotel room.
During the service, Kelly found a way to keep Bob close to her heart by wearing his wedding ring around her neck.
In photos from the funeral, the 42-year-old was seen wearing a gold chain with her late husband’s wedding ring.

Comedian Mike Binder, singer John Mayer, comedian Jeffrey Ross, Judd Apatow, Marc Maron, Jimmy Kimmel, Dave Chappelle, Kathy Griffin, Chris Rock, and Seth Green were also among the high profile guests who attended the service.
According to a source, Kelly gave a moving speech full of laughs as she called Bob “Batman” and described her late husband as her hero during the service.
The Eat Travel Rock TV host also said she was honored to be Bob’s wife and that he was her biggest cooking critic but greatest supporter, the insider revealed.
“She also joked about how he didn’t exactly know what she did for a living, she was very composed and had mourners laughing, but broke down in tears towards the end as she expressed her love for Bob,” the source said.
Paul Pressler, former president of Walt Disney Attractions, also spoke at the service, while Bob’s daughters with ex-wife Sherri Kramer took to the podium to deliver eulogies about their beloved father at the Jewish service.
Earlier in the day on Friday, loved ones poured into the home Bob and Kelly shared in Brentwood leading up to his death.
The Sheriff’s Department and fire department responded to the comedian’s hotel in Orlando around 4pm on January 9 after Bob was found in his room by hotel security.
He was pronounced dead at the scene and is thought to have died from a suspected heart attack.
The star’s death was confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
“Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room,” the office tweeted at the time.
They added: “The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.”
Bob’s family later shared a statement to Us Weekly, stating: “We are devastated to confirm that our beloved Bob passed away today.
“He was everything to us and we want you to know how much he loved his fans, performing live and bringing people from all walks of life together with laughter.”
The former couple divorced in 1997.
Bob had been touring the country at the time of his sudden passing, with his most recent shows being in Florida.
He was doing a show in Jacksonville on Saturday night, staying until early Sunday morning.
HIS FINAL DAYS
Following his passing, a source exclusively told The Sun: “Bob was in great spirits the days before, performing sold out comedy shows in Florida.
“You can see from his Instagram posts following the show what a blast he had on stage and how excited he was to be back on the comedy tour circuit.”
The insider then spoke about how Kelly is “so appreciative and touched by all of the support, media tributes, fan response, and messages from close friends and family.”
The source added: “She is still numb, as this has happened less than 24 hours ago, so she needs time to process this, and will speak out when she has had some time to properly grieve.
“It is truly devastating.”
