I was so flattered and often daydreamed what it would be like to be her in real life, lol.

I searched high and low for someone who looked so much like her, in her youth. I located her virtual twin, just 4 Streets down from me, and we have been Happily Married, for 44 Wonderful Years.
I could not have chosen anyone better than my Helen (Italian) and I would not trade her for Love nor Money!
There is not a week that goes by that do not I listen to Oh, Dio, Mio, but I just cannot seem to locate the EXACT words that she sings, in Italian.
All the Lyrics Sites have different and strange Translations!
Does anyone actually know the Absolute Correct Translation from English to Italian, as Annette sang it, way back when. I would love to sing it to my wife in Italian, even though I am of Polish Decent, as we dance to that Special Song.
O course, using the word Her instead of Him!
It would mean so much to me.
Any Help out there…please?
Respectfully,

Annette was so pretty and sweet, even on black and white TV. She was the first love of so many 4th grade boys back in the 50’s. I was one of them. I’m glad she had a wonderful life, and now she is in God’s arms.

Annette was a inspiration to us all. It’s a shame out world has changed.

She seemed to be a great role model and was very private about her life, unlike many of the stars of today. She was free of gossip because she behaved like the classy lady she always was. I am and was a fan of hers for most of my life. God rest her soul.

I remember an agent form Walt Disney Studios came by my trailer park, seeking recruits for the Mouseketeers. Walt Disney was aware of her, and recruited her soon after. Sadly, I never met her.

Re: Lee’s comments. First, not only do your comments have nothing to do with the article, but they are totally incorrect. Actually, Disney was one of the first major companies to offer employee benefits to gay partners. In 1996, The Walt Disney Company will began offering health coverage to the live-in partners of gay and lesbian employees, and encouraged other companies to do likewise.

Never underestimate the importance of research.

This is about a beautiful and giving person. Put your soapbox down on some other corner!
