Betty White. She was wholesome, risky, witty, had a lust for life that was admirable and she had the best voice and laugh. Her quote, “Everybody needs a passion. That’s what keeps life interesting. If you live without passion, you can go through life without leaving any footprints,” is very true to me and I would love to walk in her shoes!
