Legendary bassist of The Beatles, Paul McCartney has shared an open letter after tragic loss of 50’s famous actress and singer Doris Day.

Today, actress and singer Doris Day has passed away at the age of 97. According to press statement, she died early Monday at her Carmel Valley, Calif., home.

Here’s what Paul wrote after Doris’ death:

“So sad to hear of Doris Day passing away. She was a true star in more ways than one. I had the privilege of hanging out with her on a few occasions. Visiting her in her Californian home was like going to an animal sanctuary where her many dogs were taken care of in splendid style.

She had a heart of gold and was a very funny lady who I shared many laughs with. Her films like ‘Calamity Jane’, ‘Move Over, Darling’ and many others were all incredible and her acting and singing always hit the mark.

I will miss her but will always remember her twinkling smile and infectious laugh as well as the many great songs and movies she gave us. God bless Doris.”
