      Princess Diana – it’s an odd emotion
      Oh and George Michael – I didn’t anticipate that one at all hitting me the way it did.

      @make it make sense my mom cried about Princess Diana. She was one of the people in the USA who was up early for her wedding. We both were for her funeral. I got up early for William’s wedding

    RIP Betty. Crazy how 4 cast members from The Mary Tyler Moore Show passed in 2021: Cloris Leachman, Gavin MacLeod, Ed Esner, and then Betty White. RIP to the entire cast and to all 4 Golden Girls 🙏🏾❤🙏🏾❤

      Yes, she was.

    • Against thepods says:

      I do and always will. I couldn’t stop sobbing laying on my kitchen floor right when I read the news. Was even supposed to pick up my little boy from day care at 4 that day but I just couldn’t and couldn’t even take calls. He stayed at one the workers house for two nights since they couldn’t reach so now everything is fine. THATS how much I love her I couldn’t deal

    • Jim B says:

      @Against thepods Betty White had a great life. A lot of people don’t get to live to be 99 years old. I don’t expect to.

      She wasn’t just our Golden girl she was like our grandmother to television. We kept checking on her, we looked out for her, and even defended her. Although it wasn’t enough to make her see her 100th birthday, she will do so in spirit. ✨🕊🌟

  9. Tim Hayes says:

    “Even at 99, she left us wanting more” so true.

    What an amazing life she lived. Thank you Betty for sharing it with us.
