Hollywood was quick to remember Doris Day, the beloved actress, singer and animal rights activist who died today at age 97. “The great Doris Day left us and took a piece of the sun with her,” tweeted Goldie Hawn. Tony Bennett recalled what a thrill it was for him to appear on The Doris Day Show in 1970, and said he’d miss her “beautiful smile.”

Meanwhile, songwriter Diane Warren tweeted an absolutely appropriate string of animal emojies in honor of one of Hollywood’s earliest and staunchest animal rights activists. The family of Day’s The Doris Day Show co-star Rose Marie shared a memory and a photo (see it below).

Lisa Lange, PETA Senior Vice President: “Doris Day was a silver screen and singing legend, but PETA will always remember her for her most important role: animal champion. She personally rescued, fostered, and found loving homes for hundreds of animals; founded an organization to stop animal homelessness through spaying and neutering; and formed the Doris Day Animal League, which joined PETA in opposing cruel chemical tests on animals. Day was a warm, kind, generous person, and she will be missed by all of us here at PETA.”
