Was so afraid you were announcing her death. Happy Birthday to a girl who defined my youth.

A crying shame that her health is so poor these days. I liked Annette a lot, but my favorite was Cheryl--who died not long ago.

She is and will always be a true down to earth star. While performing in the Horseshoe Review at Disneyland, she took time out to make a few of us GI's feel welcomed. After being in the industry myself later, there aren't too many people I can claim that about (unless they were looking for publicity). Annette was genuine.
