All ears: Your Disney memories
Farewell Annette Funicello
- davidw, CNN iReport producer
My heart is saddened today after learning of the passing of Annette Funicello.
When Disneyland first opened many years ago, I remember the Mouseketeers came and joined in the parade. I watched Annette with the rest of the Mouseketeers dancing and singing. What a great day for a little girl. I still have that picture in my mind complete with the Fantasyland Castle.
As a teenage girl, I also remember her on the "Spin and Marty" show. And I still to this day sing some of the songs she sang on their show.
What a sad loss of such a sweet and gracious person.
