Oh, man! She was one of my favorites. So fresh faced, so natural. Good-bye, dear, and may you rest in peace.

I’m sad that she died, as I’m sad that anybody dies, but unfortunately I’m not old enough that I really watched her movies or appreciated her talent.

Que sera sera…

She was great opposite Clark Gable in Teacher’s Pet. And she was quite the beard for Rock Hudson.

We appreciated all of your films and acting style plus your beautiful voice .
She was an epitome of a healthy celebrity that had inborn beauty rather than slathered false images of present day celebrities of which many emulate.
Best of the last of the olden days.

She was a blessing to this world and will be missed. I liked her in Calamity Jane, The Man Who Knew Too Much, and Please Don’t Eat the Daisies. Hopefully TCM will play some of her favorites as a tribute.

One of the first songs I remember hearing in my life was Whatever Will Be, which was when I was 9.

I received a memorial email from the Humane Society about an hour ago, which attributes the following quote to her: “As we journey under our individual umbrellas, we should not forget we all share the same sky”.

The message from them speaks for me and I’m sure for countless others:

“Doris Day’s courage, perseverance and loving heart helped strengthen animal protection in the United States. Today, and every day, we celebrate her legacy”.

Absolutely first and foremost her beautiful heart for all the creatures who have no voice.
Safe Paths to you Doris.
