Betty White died around two weeks before her centennial birthday and now, Google has found a special way of celebrating the late legend's birthday. As a tribute, Google curated a special 'The Golden Girls'-themed search. On January 17, what would have been the favorite Golden Girl's 100th birthday, a search of 'Betty White' on Google showed 'Thank you for being a friend. 1922- 2021' and rose petals come came down from the top of the screen.

The words 'Thank you for being a friend' are from 'The Golden Girls' theme song. White played the role of Rose Nylund for almost seven years from 1985 to 1992, in the serial.

White's friends from the industry like Ryan Reynolds, Tina Fey, Robert Redford, Lin Manuel-Miranda, Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman, Jay Leno, Carol Burnett, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel, Valerie Bertinelli, James Corden, Wendy Malick and Jennifer Love Hewitt are also part of the film. As told by the producer Steven Boettcher to PEOPLE magazine, "She was great, she was funny, she was the adorable Betty White we all know and love. I mean, you see her and you just can't help but love her and she was amazing — just amazing. She was really pointed too about talking to the fans and just saying how much love and admiration she has for them, and it's so sincere, she really meant it. And this was her idea to do this little video. It was not our idea, so I think that even makes it more special."

He ended by saying, "People getting together and celebrating Betty is really the most important thing and the reason we went forward with it is because Betty would have wanted it." White was also honored at Madame Tussauds with Pink's Hot Dogs, which was White's favorite meal.
