Vicki Lawrence, who starred alongside Betty in “Mama’s Family,” told the outlet that her friend called out for her late husband, Allen Ludden.

Lawrence told the outlet she contacted Carol Burnett the day Betty passed away.

“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,’” she recalled.

“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.’”

I mean, how sweet is that!

A love story that truly never died.

“I said, ‘That is so sweet. God, I hope that’s true. For all of us, I really hope it’s true, a lovely thought,’” Lawrence continued.

Allen was Betty’s third husband, but her one true love.

She was married to Dick Barker in 1945, although the relationship didn’t last more than a year.

Betty later married Lane Allen from 1947 to 1949. It was her relationship with Allen Ludden that really stuck, and they stayed married from 1963 until his death in 1981 after battling stomach cancer.

Betty remained faithfully devoted to Allen even after his death.

Her agent, Jeff Witjas, told People that White died “peacefully” in her sleep.

“Even though Betty was about to be 100, I thought she would live forever,” Witjas said. “I will miss her terribly and so will the animal world that she loved so much. I don’t think Betty ever feared passing because she always wanted to be with her most beloved husband Allen Ludden. She believed she would be with him again.”

Even though White never moved on from Ludden, she still got plenty of offers! After she passed away, Bob Saget penned a touching tribute to the late actress and joked about the time he asked her to join the Mile High Club with him!

“We were on an ABC jet once for a junket and I was sitting across from her, both of us sipping Bloody Mary’s. We had been laughing for hours— I looked into her eyes and faux romantically said, ‘How ‘bout it, Betty, you and me in the bathroom? Mile High Club?’ She answered me before I had a chance to finish the invite— ‘Of course, Bob, you go in there first and I’ll meet you as soon as I finish my drink.’ And then of course she went right to sipping from her straw. I waited in that bathroom for over two hours. (That would be the joke on a joke part, in case you take things literally,)” Saget recalled.
