·1-min read

In a video that was filmed days before her death and was going to be released on her 100th birthday, Betty White thanked her fans.

“I just want to thank you all for your love and support over the years. Thank you so much and stick around,” White said in the clip recorded on Dec. 20 that her team shared on Instagram on Friday.

The “Golden Girls” actor died at age 99 on Dec. 31, after having a stroke on Christmas Day. White would have turned 100 on Jan. 17.

Alongside the video, White’s team thanked fans who honored the late TV legend by donating to animal shelters and rescues as part of the #BettyWhiteChallenge that went viral following her death.

“She could never have imagined such an outpouring of love and would have been so grateful to everyone,” they wrote.

“She was using the occasion of her 100th birthday to celebrate YOU — her fans,” they added. “She knew how lucky she was; she felt the love, and she never took it for granted. I think it’s appropriate to post today as a thank [you] from Betty and the animals.”
