Vicki Lawrence, Betty White’s longtime friend and Mama’s Family co-star, is opening up about the actress' final moments.
White died on Dec.31, just weeks before her 100th birthday.
Lawrence, who first met White on The Carol Burnett Show, told The Hollywood Reporter
what is believed to be what the Golden Girls star said before she passed, according to Carol Burnett.
“[Carol] said she spoke to Betty’s assistant, who was with her when she passed,
and she said the last word out of her mouth was 'Allen,'" Lawrence said.
White’s husband was Password host Allen Ludden, and he died in 1981 after a battle with stomach cancer.
"That’s so lovingly sweet. I hope that is true," Lawrence added.
White died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 99, and the cause of her death was ruled natural causes.
On Jan. 17, the Golden Girls star would have celebrated her 100th birthday.
