We all have our free agency and God holds us accountable for the way we use it in thought and deed. "Kindness, compassion, and love are powerful instruments in strengthening us to carry heavy burdens imposed without any fault of our own and to do what we know to be right." Elder Dallin H. Oaks

In answer to several emails and texts, I have to admit that I haven’t been posting articles these past couple of weeks like I usually do!
Suzanne and I have been having great success in Helping families and individuals become financially secure. It’s part of our “WHY” in life with “Strengthening The Family” desires. With that success takes a lot of our time. But, we are most pleased with the way some who were losing their homes and their jobs were able to save on the services they already are paying for and in making extra residual income to cover their bills.
If you want to see if we can help you financially, there are two ways.
1. Fill out this survey of what you are already paying for services (like phones, internet, security system, TV, computer support, natural gas and electricity, etc.) and we will get back to you if we can help save you some money every month. It costs you nothing to do this. You are going to be paying for these services you use anyway. Why not get the same big brand services for less money?
2. Go to http://osmondnetwork.acnibo.com and see our online store at the bottom, watch a presentation video at the bottom left, and if you want to know more and to join in what helps others, send me an email with your phone number to email@example.com and I will give you a call and discuss it.
We have also been taking meetings and making future plans on how we can grow TheFamily.com bigger and offer many more great things for families!
As an adult Ms. Funicello described herself as “the queen of teen,” and millions around her age agreed. Young audiences appreciated her sweet, forthright appeal, and parents saw her as the perfect daughter.
She was the last of the 24 original Mouseketeers chosen for “The Mickey Mouse Club,” the immensely popular children’s television show that began in 1955, when fewer than two-thirds of households had television sets. Walt Disney personally discovered her at a ballet performance.
Before long, she was getting more than 6,000 fan letters a week, and was known by just her first name in a manner that later defined celebrities like Cher, Madonna and Prince.
Sometimes called “America’s girl next door,” she nonetheless managed to be at the center of the action during rock ’n’ roll’s exuberant emergence. She was the youngest member of Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars tour, which included LaVern Baker, the Drifters, Bobby Rydell, the Coasters and Paul Anka. Mr. Anka, her boyfriend, wrote “Puppy Love” for her in her parents’ living room.
As a Mouseketeer, she received a steady stream of wristwatches, school rings and even engagement rings from young men, all of which she returned. She wrote in her 1994 autobiography, “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” that irate mothers often wrote back to say “how hard Johnny or Tommy had worked to save the money for the gift and how dare I return it?”
She said that if she had charm (she undeniably had modesty), it was partly a result of her shyness. Mr. Disney begged her to call him Uncle Walt, but she could manage only “Mr. Disney.” (She could handle “Uncle Makeup” and “Aunt Hairdresser.”)
At the height of her stardom, she said her ambition was to quit show business and have nine children.
With minor exceptions, like her commercials for Skippy peanut butter, Ms. Funicello did become a homemaker after marrying at 22. One reason, she said, was her reluctance to take parts at odds with her squeaky-clean image. She had three children.
Her cheerfulness was legendary. Her response to learning she had multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease of the central nervous system, was to start a charity to find a cure.
There was no irony, only warm good feeling, in her oft-repeated remark about the world’s pre-eminent rodent: “Mickey is more than a mouse to me. I am honored to call him a friend.”
Annette Joanne Funicello was born on Oct. 22, 1942, in Utica, N.Y., and as the first grandchild on either side of the family was indulged to the point of being, in her own words, a “spoiled brat.” At age 2, she learned the words to every song on the hit parade, her favorite being “Ac-cent-tchu-ate the Positive.”
In 1946, her parents decided to move to Southern California in the hope of doing better economically. They lived in a trailer park until her father, a mechanic, found work. They settled in Studio City and later moved to Encino.
Annette took dancing lessons, learned to play drums and, at 9, was named Miss Willow Lake at a poolside beauty contest. She did some modeling. Mr. Disney, who wanted amateurs and not professional child actors, discovered her when she danced in “Swan Lake” at a local recital.
“The Mickey Mouse Club” was instantly popular, generating orders for 24,000 mouse-eared beanies a day. Annette quickly became the most popular Mouseketeer, and Disney marketed everything from Annette lunchboxes and dolls to mystery novels about her fictionalized adventures.
But she did not receive special treatment. When she lost a pair of felt mouse ears, she was charged $55. It was deducted from her $185 weekly paycheck.
She once decided she wanted to change her last name to something more typically American. She chose Turner. But Mr. Disney, whom she considered a second father, convinced her that her own name would be more memorable once people learned it.
In 1958, as “The Mickey Mouse Club” was ending its run, Mr. Disney summoned Ms. Funicello to his office. She feared she was going to be fired for growing too tall, but instead he offered her a studio contract — the only one given to a Mouseketeer.
Annette Funicello, who was part of the original cast of the 1950′s Disney television program, The Mickey Mouse Club, died Monday. She was 70 and had had multiple sclerosis for decades. Funicello also co-starred in several Disney beach party movies in the 1960′s along with Frankie Avalon.
Fans are laying flowers on Annette Funicello’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star. When she received it 10 years ago, she said she owed her career to her mentor Walt Disney, who she called Uncle Walt, and his famous cartoon rodent.
“I used to always watch the Mickey Mouse Club with Annette Funicello when I was young”, says Alan Osmond of the performing Osmond Family, who also has Multiple Sclerosis for the past 26 years.
It wasn’t but 5 or 6 years after I got M.S. that a ‘rag magazine’ notified me saying that they were going to expose me and the fact that I had MS with a headline inferring that I was going to die! It was almost embarrassed in letting anyone know that I had multiple sclerosis yet alone having a bad magazine tell the world that I was dying! It wasn’t true! I didn’t know what to do so, I contacted Annette Funicello and we had a wonderful visit. We talked about the business and how Walt Disney was responsible in launching Annette’s and me and my brothers careers into show business. I then explained to Annette that I had recently been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and we shared our stories with each other. I told Annette about the magazine article that was scheduled to come out and she said, “Alan, the best thing to do is to just come open with it and announce it to the world.” Well, that’s exactly what I did!
The next morning I was scheduled to appear on Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight and with People Magazine. I shared my story and what I had and gave thanks to Annette for encouraging me to open up and talk about it. Actually, I felt much better by getting it out in the open and in dealing with it! Being the third son of eight boys and one girl, my father who had been an army sergeant and in teaching us to be tough would say, “You can do it!” when we had a challenge. My mother would spiritually strengthen us children when challenged with her, “This too shall pass”, encouragements. So from that day I announced it until today I say, ”I may have M.S., but, M.S. does NOT have me!”
I stayed in touch with Annette over the next years and we noted others like Anne Romney, Teri Garr and others who got M.S. as we tried to figure out how to help others who faced the same ‘TEST‘ in life. Annette’s husband Glenn Holt and I talked many times together and especially when Annette couldn’t talk well because the M.S. affected her voice. Glenn always put Annette first and would meet her every need. They had horses and rode them trying every thing they could to stop this disabling disease. They even started The Annette Funicello Research Fund to help others with M.S. and encouraged all to join in by donating.
When I heard that Annette had passed away, I wrote to Glen Holt and sent my condolences and sympathies letting him know that he will Annette would one day be together again:
“Glenn my friend, Suzanne and I and our families send our condolences and love along with our prayers this day.
Bless you Glen. You were the best husband Annette could have had and you gave her everyting she needed and you were most loving and caring in her every need! I am a better person for having known you both and we had many great laughs and conversations together.
I know that Annette is in a better place, where my parents are also, and you will be with Annette some day again.
Please know of of love and everlasting friendship, Alan & Suzanne Osmond”
Glenn was with Annette and so he had his son Philip Holt text me this message:
“Philip Holt here (Glen’s son). Dad has received your email and wants no time to pass by without replying to you. Of course I have heard many of the stories and of the great friendship you all have shared with Dad and Annette through the years. I have just sat down with dad and he has asked me to share the following with you:
Thank you and your entire family so much for your prayers, thoughts and sincere words at this time of our deep loss! I can tell you without any hesitation what so ever that the shared times we have had with you and your family have mutually been a blessing for both Annette and me! Please give thanks to everyone in your family for always being such an incredible example to both of us through the years! Annie had such an incredible and genuine respect for your entire family! This includes you mother too. She was a TRUE fan of your mother! She respected her so much!! It meant so much to Annie that the relationship we shared with all of you had nothing to do with show business and was always truly about the love and respect we all have for our families and each other.
Additionally, Dad mentioned to me that you sometimes post items on your website about “Annie and our friendship”. He is incredibly proud of your shared friendship and therefore wants you to feel free to continue with these posts as you wish.
Respectfully and with Sincere Thanks, Philip Holt on behalf of my Dad Glen Holt and of course Annette Funicello Holt”
I share our comments with Philip and Glen’s blessings because we all will face these moments in life. May we always remember that family and friends are forever; and so are we! As God’s children, because of Jesus Christ’s atonement, we all will return to Him once again.
As I paused and looked at Annette’s name, it dawned on me that her name ends with ‘ETTE’. This has been one of our family’s slogans which means, “Endure To The End”. Endure means to remain firm in a commitment and to be true to the commandments of God despite temptation, opposition, and adversity. We have always tried to live this and so did Annette as the article above reminds us of ‘her modesty’! We would always express “ETTE” or “Endure To The End” when hard challenges came when we were growing up in show business and even made rings with ETTE to remind us because as scripture says: ”
“Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.” 2 Nephi 31:20
To my freind Annette, Glen Holt and all family members, may I say, “Endure To The End”. Death is a part of God’s eternal Plan of Life. God is not the author of confusion. There are also opposites in all things. As we are born; we must also die. When the physical body dies, the spirit continues to live. In the spirit world, the spirits of the righteous “are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow” (Alma 40:12). This is where Annette is.
I also want to encourage all family and friends of Annette to remember to continue supporting The Annette Funicello Research Fund. (See address below.) This is how we all can express thanks to Annette and remember her by helping many others with M.S. as Annette said,
”I have great faith there is a reason God wanted me to have MS,” … “I think the reason is for me to help others and help raise funds.” Annette
Annette, your ‘TEST‘ is now a ‘TEST imony” to all!
The Osmond Family Genealogist and Researcher, Clayton Brough and his wife Ethel, just sent us a copy of our Genealogy Records on a fan shaped layout that my Mother, Olive Osmond, created years ago. This chart form is now being used world wide and is being produced by TreeSeek.com.
If you see familiar names think you might be connected, that we might be related, you can go to our website at www.osmond.org and click on Surnames. If your name starts with the letter T, click on “T”, and all names that we have found beginning with ‘T’ that we have found so far, will show on the screen. Do the same for other names.
When Suzanne and I went to Charolette, North Carolina for the ACN International Convention, we had no idea that we would be invited to speak in front of the 25,000+ people at the convention! The video above briefly explains our story.
We are living during a time when jobs are hard to find, our 401 K’s are down, the stock market and currency is down, retirement funds are unsure, families are drawn away from home because of work while the cost of living keeps going up sky high!
In Suzanne’s and my efforts to provide for our eight sons and 22 grandkids, and with me having M.S. which keeps me from doing very much physical work, we prayerfully had been searching and seeking for answers to our challenges and for others with a way to help “Strengthen The Family – Financially!“
As I said in the video, “If you want to know if prayer works, pray! If you want to know if ACN works, do ACN!”
We are doing it and IT WORKS! Yes, it takes work but, anything worth having usually does. So far, my brothers and sister and I have worked hard for 53 years in the entertainment business and it wasn’t easy but with hard work and determination, we were blessed with major success. The same can happen with ACN! By following the system and learning and doing as they say, Suzanne and I with out TEAM are having it!
I remember when we were young and wanted to sing and perform. Our father who had been an army sergeant and who lived a hard and tough childhood said, “You can do it!” And we did!
After having traveled around the world and making friends everywhere, I say to you who may be looking for a job, an opportunity to climb to the top of the organization without worrying about getting fired, or who are waiting for others to get out of the way of promotions and in receiving top dollars, and for those who want to spend more time at home being a good Father and Mother, making extra income instead of trading your time for money at a “regular job” that takes so much of your time away from home, I ALSO SAY . . . “YOU CAN DO IT!”
There are two ways that you can become involved:
1. As a Customer, . . . and
2. As an Independent Business Owner.
- As a customer, I extend an invitation to let us see if we can save you some money on services that you actually are already using. It costs you nothing to save money.

Follow the instructions and you will become a part of The Osmond Network Team! Remember, if it is “ON” (Osmond Network) . . . YOU GET PAID!
Once you are an IBO (Independent Business Owner), you must get trained and get your first 3 preferred services to start earning money. I will be watching my back office to welcome you to our TEAM!

ACN is currently in 23 countries and growing! The opportunity is wide open with 99% of the market place still available. If ACN is for you, you can fulfill your dreams quickly and reach the financial level you wish where you are in control of your time and your dreams!
