I don't know why I felt that I should post that, but there it is.

I did not hear him say it but I’m sure he meant it as a way of saying how much he admired her. She is a treasure to so many

Betty is a beacon of the good we still have. We need her during this time of negativity in our nation.

Because if she isn't the animals, especially the Tigers, will be upset.
They really don't want them, ESPECIALLY the Tigers upset. No one will like them when them when they get upset.

I'm so old I remember watching her in the 40s and 50s. I was just a kid, but I had a crush on her just the same. (Her and Sonja Henie.)

As an aside my white coloured Ram pickup truck is called Betty.

Remember her as Sue Ann Nivens on the Mary Tyler Moore Show? She's funny even when she bakes a cake, or chases after Lou Grant.

Such a wonderful class act. I hope she is doing well and surrounded by the love of her family, friends and pets.

She was a riot on there. I still laugh when I see the reruns with her and Brett Somers going at it.
