No Funeral for Doris Day?

Twitter tributes poured in yesterday for Hollywood legend Doris Day following the news of her passing at the age of 97. But outside of Twitter, there will be no tributes or memorials for the late actress and singer.

Day’s close friend and manager Bob Bashara says there will be no funeral, memorial service, or even a grave marker. He says she was never comfortable talking about death and made her wishes very clear in her will. She also chose to donate her entire estate to charity. (People)

Hot Takes:

  • These were her wishes and they should be respected.
  • She cared mostly about her animals and made sure in her will that they would be taken care of.
  • Her manager says she was never comfortable with her celebrity status and didn’t want anyone making a fuss over her.
