Today would have marked Betty White’s milestone 100th birthday.

The iconic actress, who is best known for her role in The Golden Girls, passed away last month on December 31st at the age of 99.

Her unexpected death is said to have come six days after White suffered a stroke, per a copy of her death certificate obtained by People.

The unique celebration can be seen when you search for her name on the platform. Almost immediately, the page is filled with rose petals that cascade down your screen, along with a message that reads, “Thank you for being a friend.”
