    Aww this is so sad. Such a fine example of a celebrity. It's a shame that there's not more like her out there. She will be missed.

    You can never run out of imagination. The more you use, the more you gain.

    I just got a news alert on my phone. Truly a sad day.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    Classy lady. I know she was fighting her illness for a very long time. Peace and love to all that are affected by her loss.

    From the L.A. Times announcement:


    Funicello, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1987 and became a spokeswoman for treatment of the chronic, often-debilitating disease of the central nervous system, died at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, Walt Disney Co. spokesman Howard Green said.

    Funicello and her husband, Glen Holt, had moved from the Los Angeles area after a 2011 fire gutted their home in Encino.

    Bob Iger, Disney’s chairman and chief executive, said: “Annette was and always will be a cherished member of the Disney family, synonymous with the word 'Mousketeer,' and a true Disney legend. She will forever hold a place in our hearts as one of Walt Disney’s brightest stars, delighting an entire generation of baby boomers with her jubilant personality and endless talent. Annette was well known for being as beautiful inside as she was on the outside, and she faced her physical challenges with dignity, bravery and grace. All of us at Disney join with family, friends, and fans around the world in celebrating her extraordinary life.”



    "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

    - Neil Gabler

    So sad, I just read this moments ago on MSN. I loved her on Mickey Mouse Club and Beach Party movies. A sad day for Disney.

    I loved the era she belonged to and the projection of happy, clean, fun. I am sad to see her go.
