Cartoonist Marshall Ramsey wrote of Betty White: “It says so much about your life and legacy if people say you died too soon at 99.”
Why do we love this brilliant woman? Let us count the ways:
She made us laugh
Betty White once said, “Funny never gets old.” She gave us funny. And she never seemed old. Maybe if we reach for humor we won’t seem old.
She wasn’t just Funny, she was FUN
“I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It’s that simple.” … Betty White
Her Beauty Came from Within
Her hair color may have changed through the years, but her “joie de vivre” always shone through.
She loved (I mean LOVED) Animals
“You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.“… Betty White
She Taught Us the Secret to the Fountain of Youth
“Kindness and consideration of somebody besides yourself keeps you feeling young.” … Betty White
She knew the value of Friendship
Quintessential BETTY WHITE.
Unique in all of time…there will never be another.
Betty, Thank you for being OUR FRIEND.
