"Humor is the only way my family survived," The Full House alum shared midway through the interview.

"It is so healthy to laugh. And I'm out there doing it and I know it's healing for people."

Saget has been a longtime advocate for the Scleroderma Research Foundation (SRF).

"We were all in the room when she let out her last breath, and I don't know how to explain it, and I'm going to go woo woo here, it felt like the soul going past us, literally felt my hair kinda move," he recalled.

"You know being an actor, that's a very important thing if your hair gets out of place."

"My sister should not be dead," Saget said.

"And that's one of the things that kept me doing this, will keep me doing this until I'm gone. I'll do it when I'm gone."

Saget was found dead in his hotel room by the staff of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Orlando.
