In the store today there was a picture of Annette sayig it was her lasts days. I remember her mostly on my birthday. She was born a year after me on Oct.22nd. She also has my first name is her middle nam. I followed her back in 50`s and 60`s. She was very pretty and she starred in alot of beach movies with Frankie Avalon. I was stunne when I heard of her being diagnosed with MS. My prayers are with her and her family.

Dear Annette, I look back over the time when I enjoyed all your movies. You were always my favorite actress of all time. I am praying for you. I know your birthday will be coming up soon. I wish you a very Happy Birthday. I wish I had met you. You were the only one that I really would have met. May God richly bless you. David

Dear Annette, You`re the best! You`re always in my prayers. God bless you.

Annette Funicello was my very first interest in girls. She has always been so beautiful and still is. I used to be Office/IT Director for a Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross and also an instructor for them. I was Shelter Manager in 2004for the 4 Hurricanes in a row. I was also a teacher for Brevard Cnty Public Schools.I started feeling strange around then and, finally, in 2006 I was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis. Mine just continually progresses and has no remissions.But I`m blessed to be in such good company as you. You are my hero. I`m 58 and not giving up yet. God bless you, Annette.

Vickie M. BellDec 28, 2009

She is and was such a beautiful lady. I really admired her.

DACSep 30, 2009

Dear Ms. Funicello, just wanted to let you know that you were really BIG in my life when I was a kid (I`m about five years younger than you) - and as a nurse and professional caregiver I appreciate the difficulty that your are facing. Thanks for the great memories - God Bless you with healing and strength. A loving fan. Dale
