Rest in peace to Hollywood Legend.

At 97 years old, Doris Day passed away this morning (5/13) in Carmel Valley, California. Of course you had the Marilyn Monroes, the Grace Kellys, the Audrey Hepburns, but there was always a special place in my heart for Doris Day, the widely considered more approachable celebrity of the 50's. She was a beautiful singer, actress, animal activist, TV star, and an icon for all of us.

According to USA Today, "Day had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, resulting in her death," said when USA Today was in contact with The Doris Day Animal Foundation.
