Google is celebrating the Betty White on what would have been her 100th birthday with a touching Golden Girls Easter egg.
White passed away in her sleep on December 31, just weeks from reaching her centenary.
Searching Betty White’s name on Google brings up an animation of red rose petals floating to the bottom of the screen, followed by the words:
“Thank you for being a friend, 1922-2021.”
The actress was well-known for her outspoken support for the LGBT+ community. She lovingly once joked:
“Gays love old ladies.”
White told Parade magazine in 2010,
“I don’t care who anybody sleeps with…
If a couple has been together all that time – and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones – I think it’s fine if they want to get married.”
I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
The week of her passing, White told People magazine,
I’m so lucky to be in such good health and feel so good at this age.
