“Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.” –Annette Funicello
I grew up watching Annette Funicello, first as a Mouseketeer on Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club and then in all of the “beach” movies and “Shaggy Dog,” “Babes in Toyland” and others. I loved when she was paired up with Frankie Avalon; my generation swooned over him! She fought the brave fight when MS struck her early in life. Condolences to her family and her fans! Hope Annette is enjoying that great beach party in the sky!
