Annette Funicello dies

NEW YORK (AP) - For millions of young boys, Annette Funicello was their first crush. She was the most popular of the Mouseketeers on "The Mickey Mouse Club." She says guys would tell her that all the time and their wives said they were never jealous. Then teenagers fell in love with her when she starred in "Beach Blanket Bingo" and other movies with Frankie Avalon. Funicello came down with MS in 1992. But true to her positive nature, she didn't let it get her down. She told AP Radio in 1994 that she couldn't blame anyone, "it just happened." Funicello died of complications from MS. She was 70.
