Farewell Annette RIP

Wow, I can't believe she's gone.
Annette Funicello was my childhood hero, Every day at 3o'clock I watched Mickey Mouse Club not to see Mickey or the cartoons but to watch Annette sing and dance. From age 4 to about ten I wanted to be just like her. My love of theater/acting came from her. Her talent was an experience all of its own no one was ever like her and as far as I'm concerned no one ever will. She opened the door to my dream and I will always remember her for that. It was also very cool to grow up knowing you shared your name with such a star- her middle name is my first name.
