When I was a kid, I was in LOVE with Annette Funicello... along with every other boy in my age group. Rest well my "first love."
Actress Annette Funicello, longtime Disney and "Beach Party" star, died Monday at age 70 in Bakersfield, California, according to the Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases Inc. and the Official Disney Fan Club.
She died from complications of multiple sclerosis, according to a statement from her research fund.
Rest well, Annette. :-x
