I was diagnosed with MS around 1987, and wrote Annette a letter about it. Six weeks later, I got a very nice letter from Annette, and she share with me that she felt bad about my diagnosis and that she was sorry, but she told me that "Things Happen for a reason. Just keep your chin up, be positive, and please by all means keep me posted on how your doing..We're all in this together. God Bless. Love, Annette." I have that letter framed and in the years of my ms it has Progressed to PPMS. I now use a walker, my speech is slurred, but I'm alive and doing ok. I have bad days. Annette never refused to say hi to her fans. She was graceful, very nice, and a great moral booster! God needed a Mouskateer, He got Annette. We miss you!! God Bless your family! We will never forget you. Especially me. Thank you for the letter Annette. it meant a lot to me.
