Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who got their start in Hollywood by jointly playing Michelle Tanner on the ABC sitcom Full House, are remembering their TV dad, Bob Saget, who died on Sunday.

"Bob was the most loving, compassionate and generous man. We are deeply saddened that he is no longer with us but know that he will continue to be by our side to guide us as gracefully as he always has,' the Olsen sisters said in a statement obtained by People. 'We are thinking of his daughters, wife and family and are sending our condolences.'

For eight seasons, Saget played Danny Tanner, father of the Olsens' Michelle. In 2016, Saget revived the role for Netflix's reboot, Fuller House, though the Olsens did not return.

Other Full House cast members have also since spoken out in memory of Saget.

'I am broken. I am gutted. I am in complete and utter shock,' John Stamos, who played Jesse Katsopolis, wrote on Twitter last night. 'I will never ever have another friend like him. I love you so much Bobby.'

Saget was found unresponsive in a hotel room in Florida on Sunday. The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed his death on Twitter, writing, 'Earlier today, deputies were called to the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes for a call about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. The man was identified as Robert Saget & pronounced deceased on scene. Detectives found no signs of foul play or drug use in this case.'
