    Darling Doris. There is nothing new to be said about you. So I echo what everyone else has said. You are part of everyday life in my house I have little reminders of you everywhere. Your love of animals is the same as my own. I know you have been hurt in life, but remained true to yourself. Your movies are as fresh and sweet as ever they were. No-one could ever fill your shoes Doris K. No one could wear clothes better that you. No one has EVER cried more than you on the movies. You are the real deal. Thanks Doris for making life better…smiley face..Catherine xx

  22. Gilmore says:

    Happy Birthday, Doris!!

    You were one of my mothers favorite singers and film actress, and when I was born in 1962 she introduced me to you and it’s been a love affair ever since. You were the only “non-Italian singer” we were aloud to listen to.

    I lost my mother 20 years ago this month, but the education of music and film that she gave to me remains to this day. The name Doris Day has added laughter, song, tears, and fond memories into my life. I am VERY grateful.

    Thank God you were born to have given such a gift of entertainment to all of us. I know it was just a JOB, that you did very well, but to many it was more than that. You inspired, you motivated, you taught, and you gave us music to add to the personal soundtracks of our lives.

    90 years of giving so much positive energy to your two legged, and four legged, friends and fans.

    God bless you and thank you for everything.

  23. Humberto Montalvo says:

    Happy Birthday Doris. Wish you nothing but the best on your special DAY. I was so in love with you when I was growing up. There was no one more beautiful than you in the whole world. I enjoyed watching your movies, specially the ones you made with Rock Hudson. .

  24. Crystal Horsley says:

    Happy Birthday Doris! I’ve always wanted to tell you how much your talent and beautiful smile have meant to me! My family loves you too! Enjoy your special day!

  25. Bonnie Debel-Fingerson says:

    I am 64 and I have been a huge fan of Doris Day all my life.. I have seen almost all of her movies. I Love her voice and singing. I have been watching her movies all day on TCM. I admire her strength and resolve and her dedication to help animals. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A WONDERFUL LADY!

    Happy Birthday, Doris! You’ve been very important in the lives of my daughter and me! My little girl became a loyal Doris fan when she was 3 years old when she saw you in Calamity Jane. After that, on weekends or whenever a special occasion came up, we watched a Doris movie together. We collected all 39 movies. It became our special thing to do together! Our mother-daughter bond became so much stronger because of those happy times! My little girl is now almost 28 years old and we still get together for a Doris movie together! We Love You, Doris!

    Happy Birthday Doris,
    You are one of a kind and have made so many people happy. Not only in your wonderful movies but the kindness you have shared with all. I have always loved your music and movies and your TV shows are watched a lot in my house. You should start a Doris Day Clothes catalog. Boy I love the different oxford shirts you wore in addition, some of the designers should watch your movies and look at the dresses you wore. Outstanding! Me, I love cotton and I have always wanted to live on a farm. My Dad is going to be 92 and is out there cutting the grass and I am sure you are still working while enjoying the environment and taking care of your farm and animals.
    Enjoy your Birthday,
