Betty White’s final word before she died on Friday showed how much love she had for her late husband, Allan Ludden.

That’s according to actor Vicki Lawrence, who worked with White on the 1980s sitcom Mama’s Family.

Lawrence told Page Six that as soon as she heard about White’s death, she contacted their mutual friend, Carol Burnett, who shared what she’d learned about White’s final moments.

“I texted Carol and said, ‘This just sucks. I hate this. It’s just horrible to see the people you love so much go away,’” the 72-year-old Lawrence said. “Carol wrote back and said, ‘I know, I know. I spoke to Betty’s assistant, who was with her when she passed, and she said the very last word out of her mouth was ‘Allen.’”

White was married to Ludden, who was best known for hosting game shows like Password, from 1963 until his death in 1981 at the age of 63.

Jeff Witjas, White’s agent and friend, told People that White never feared dying because “she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”
