Betty White, known for one of the ‘friends’ on popular night sitcom, The Golden Girls; passed away just three weeks before she hit the big 100. She was found dead on December 31, confirmed by her agent and close friend Jeff Witjas.
“Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever,” Witjas said in a statement to People magazine. “I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”
