Betty White’s Final Word Gives Me Hope

In the last couple of days, there are reports that right before Betty White passed away on December 31, 2021, her last word was “Allen.” This news brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. Allen was Betty’s late husband; he passed away in 1981.

My Tom passed away in September, and I hope that when it’s my time to go, Tom will come for me; I hope my last word will be “Tom.”
