Good night, beautiful lady.
“Here is a test to find out whether your mission in life is complete. If you’re alive, it isn’t”
- Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014)
"I’m not ashamed of what I am - of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just taking up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don’t like everything I know about myself, and I’ll never be satisfied, but nobody’s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me - what they will hold - but I’m open to suggestions."
Rest in Peace, Betty.
(1924 - 2014)
