(WJW) – Grab a handkerchief, Betty White fans.

White’s assistant Kiersten Mikelas, who now manages the late Hollywood legend’s social media accounts, posted a video on Friday that White wanted to share with his fans on his 100th birthday.

White died at her home on December 31 at the age of 99, just weeks before turning 100.

In an Instagram post, Mikelas first referenced a movie event that aired in theaters across the country in honor of White’s birthday on Jan. 17: “Betty White: 100 years young – A birthday celebration”.

“When we recorded his special message to fans who attended the film, we also recorded one that we planned to put on social media on his birthday,” she wrote. “She was taking the opportunity of her 100th birthday to celebrate YOU – her fans. She knew how lucky she was. She felt the love and she never took it for granted.

White says in this video shared on Friday, “I just want to thank you all for your love and support over the years. Thank you very much and stick around.

Mikelas also thanked everyone around the world who participated in #thebettywhitechallenge by donating to their favorite animal shelters in honor of White, who was an animal enthusiast.

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

From there, she made countless guest appearances and in 2010 became the oldest person to host “Saturday Night Live”, which won her an Emmy.

White was also known for her support of animal welfare and LGBTQ rights.
