Tonight we will say goodbye to 2021 . Today we said goodbye to a legend . A true icon. A woman beloved the world over . Today the unthinkable happened . Today , just 18 days before her 100th birthday, we lost Betty White .
She earned her place in our hearts with her iconic roles as Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Show , and as Rose Nylund on the Golden Girls . But she was so much more than that . Betty was funny , classy, and sassy , with a little bawdiness thrown in as well.
Betty never met an animal she didn’t like . She advocated for all of them . And they loved her just as much as she loved them . You can bet on that .
So tonight , as the clock strikes midnight , raise your glass in a toast to Betty and have a slice of cheesecake in her honor .
We will miss you Betty . Thank you for being a friend .
