Betty White,

Happy birthday to you! What a brilliant artist, human, and activist you are. From your love for animals to your work on the Golden Girls, you continually delight me and so many others. 

You look stunning. 96 truly has nothing on you.

Thank you for showing me how to laugh and not take life too seriously. This must be key to living a fulfilling life.

Thank you for Rose. What a relatable and hilarious character.

Thank you for loving animals so fiercely. Life is significant in every way.

Thank you for proving that old age doesn't have to be hopeless. It can be full of love, humor, and new adventures.

Thank you for not letting the fame change your humanity.

Betty, I love you dearly. Happy Birthday!
