As a grade school boy, I had no use for girls at all, but I did like your movies. I met you once at a movie premier and you gave me a hug (I think I was about 10). I instantly fell in love with you and made an effort to watch all of your movies from that point on. You were my ideal of what a woman should be.

You were the example of what a woman could be and do-----you were a front runner for us all. We will miss you and that beautiful smile that was only Doris.
A fan.

No matter how many days may pass, it is still hard to imagine that your special light in this world has been extinguished. You were the person whose smile and laugh made each day so much brighter than the last.
I miss you more than words could ever say. Your laughter still lives in my heart.
I was so very privileged to call you my friend. Someday, I'll find you again!
Love you still

She was the most beautiful and seemingly genuine I daily saw in media when I was growing up in the sixties.. She had a huge positive influence the last eighty years on America culture!

I loved Doris Day and she was one of my favorite actresses. Her wholesomeness was delightful to watch on the screen. So sorry to hear of her death.

I know she passed in April and here it is almost September and I'm just getting around to paying my respects. Most of her performances, I know personally as my own father had played in local productions of just about all of them. (Pajama Game being the most memorable.) I would never miss a DD movie when it came on TV...whether it was an oldie on a Sunday matinee or a "Saturday Night at the Movies" - I was right there. I saw "Ballad of Josie" at the drive-in with my parents.
I was too young to see "Midnight Lace" when it first came out, but it sure did scare the daylights out of me later on. I had trouble even watching "Dr. Doolittle" after that, as well, as I couldn't look at Rex Harrison the same anymore.
Thank you, Doris Day, for your years of entertainment you have left to all of us.

Loved her dearly all through her life, Read all I read about her career and have her pictures and records that I proudly play for my children, even today. Thank God for the records and films so we may enjoy such a good person that she could not spoil throughout her career. Thank God she was born!!

I have loved Doris Day since I was ten years old. I first saw her on TV in Calamity Jane while trying to master long division. I got into so much trouble because I couldn't take my eyes off the TV. I was spellbound watching her sing and dance as 'Calam'. From that point on I couldn't get enough of Doris! My biggest regret is that I never got to meet her! I watched that movie with my granddaughter Emma once and was tickled when she asked me if we could watch the movie with that cowboy lady! I created a new Doris fan! Gosh I am going to miss knowing she is in the world. She made it a happier for people and pets! Rest well beautiful Doris. Love you forever! Melody Swedenberg

She was one of my all time favorite actress. She made me laugh and think of things in a positive way. She will be missed by everyone. The one thing that always helps me at difficult times is knowing we have a Creator who really cares for us and gives us a wonderful hope that in the future we will see them again. He gives us good memories and will always comfort us. Know she will be missed.

Doris will forever be remembered for all her talents. She was an icon in the entertainment industry. No one today could be equal in her singing and acting abilities. There was only one Doris Day and she will never be replaced as the STAR she was. JM

Everyone knows that Doris will forever be remembered for her talents. No one could sing like her and her rendition of Secret Love is so memorable. Her acting in Midnight Lace should have secured a long over due Oscar. Doris' love for all the animals she rescued showed what a beautiful soul she was. RIP MTM

Mary J Hansen, My idol a champion for animal rescue and rights, I weep there will never be another human like her and I will never forget and support her cause. heart broken and I know heaven holds a crown for Doris and everything she worked so hard for. Proud to say Dr Brashare at Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital here in Omaha Nebraska now retired helped Doris adopt her precious dog. Growing up in L.A. I saw her on red carpet what an honor, what a great human being, We all love you Doris you are with us always.

I will always remember the river boat that carried passengers up and down the Russian River back in the summers during the 50's playing Doris Day singing Que Sera, Sera what will be will be. Our mother over the years always told my sisters and I the same belief and it has given us faith, hope and strength in our lives. I think that is Doris Day's legacy. You were and will always be very special forever.❤

My most memorable Doris Day movies are "Pillow Talk", & "Send Me No Flowers". Her movies are quite entertaining, fun, happy, well scripted, and hilarious, at times! What a delight to watch. We shared the same birthday of April 3rd, just different years. She was a true, down to earth , wonderful human being. Her devotion to the animals will continue in her memory. God bless you, Doris, for all you have done. She is now resting in peace in Animal Heaven's "Rainbow Bridge"! It is true, "Animals ARE your most Loyal, and Best Friends". Doris will be greatly missed, leaving a fascinating legacy for all to enjoy. What a beautiful person! We love you Doris! Victoria H. - May 22, 2019

When I was 5 years old, I sang It's Magic at my cousin's wedding, aspiring to be just like Doris Day! I went on to sing on stage from the age of six, and continue. I have loved this Monumentally Gifted-of-God Sparkling Lady all my life. My sincere condolences to all the family, and to all Doris' many friends, includiing four-footed darlings.
Rest In Peace, Doris Dear. Thank you for your Amazing Legacy of Music, Laughter and Love.

It is so sad that the world has lost such a beautiful soul as Doris. She was a very special lady who not only entertained us, but she saved so many unwanted animals. Doris had many talents which are so memorable. Doris' singing and acting were outstanding and will never be duplicate by anyone else. Dawn M.
