obit here

Wow..... Annette. Like so many others of my generation I too loved Annette. But it was how she lived the rest of her life and the person she was as an adult that was so much better............Goodbye Annette.....millions of old fans say thank you.

I think she was my first infatuation. Hayley Mills was the second. I watched a lot of Disney as a kid.

You and me both Jim. I too was completely gone for Hayley after I first saw her. But Annettte was always there and as an young adult, challenged with MS she showed that beauty was, once and for all, not just skin deep. It was hard NOT to fall in love with her then. Her biography is a good read with a title from a song in "Cinderella"......"A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes."

We used to watch the "Mickey Mouse Club" just to see her legs when she danced. Woo-hoo! Hot stuff for 12 year old boys back then!

But the true beauty was inside. Requiescat In Pace.

I had a crush on her, too. And then to see her get MS as a young adult and to carry on with such dignity for so long - that gave me a lot of respect for her and for all who suffer from MS.

I was 3 years older than Anette, and she was the only reason I watched MM club with my younger brother.

Now I DO feel old...

Spaw mentioned Annette's autobiography, A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes. It was made into a TV movie. Eva LaRue played Annette as a teenager. Annette herself appeared in the film. She was reclining on a couch and spoke softly, slurring slightly and hesitant due to MS, and told children about parts of her life. From the time I heard of her diagnosis, I thought of her whenever I heard anything about MS and wondered how she was.

I loved her too. Feels like the loss of an old childhood friend.

Apparently she lost the ability to speak in 2009.
And she had been in a coma for some time before she died.
Sad.

Even if you favored Darlene, as I did, it was impossible to dislike Annette. And when life dealt her a bad hand, she played it with dignity and grace.

May she rest in peace...
