I remember watching Doris Day on TV. Her series and her song, "Que Sera Sera" and thinking how glamorous she was and at the same time, so down to earth and just a sweet and kind person. I didn't know at the time her TV character was very much like the woman in real life. 

The Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed Day died early Monday at her Carmel Valley, California, home. The foundation says in an emailed statement she was surrounded by close friends and "had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia." She was 97.

She celebrated her 97th birthday on April 3.

Rest in peace sweet Doris Day and thank you for all the years of entertainment and love of animals. ~grace
