On the eve of her 86th birthday, the wonderful MARY COSTA, whose melodious voice spoke and sang for the Princess Aurora in Walt Disney's 1959 classic, Sleeping Beauty, has a message to her many fans and friends around the world..."I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream..."
