She danced and sang her way into the hearts of the young and old alike. Her adorable, forgiving and affectionate ways inspired us to want to do good. We learned from her that being kind to others goes a long, long way. May the Lord bless you, Shirley, for the happiness you brought to us all.

To continue from above: One of my sons researched and wrote about Shirley\'s life and danced from age 6-20. On a family trip to California we searched for her address in hopes of getting to meet her, a possible autograph on his shoes and some dance advice. It\'s a privilege to feel connected

I grew up watching this beautiful, intelligent young girl. She stole the hearts of those who watched her. I loved Heidi, and the "Little Princess above all. Here years later I have received strength from scenes where she had to be brave. I've quoted some of her words to help me when I need to stand!

I grew up watching and loving all Shirley's movies. I was also a tap dancer as a child. As an adult I thought it was more than coincidence that four members of my family share her birthday: my niece, my brother and my two sons. My niece even has a picture taken at age 3 that looks a lot like Shirley

When I was about 4 my Mum, who was 1 month younger (5/23/28), introduced me to Shirley Temple. They showed her movies every week when I was little & I tried never to miss it. Then I introduced my daughter to her as well. She brought 3 generations of my family great joy. She will be missed very much!

Shirley Temple helped me dream dreams as a child of fun, delight, beauty, and charm. As an adult she did so much with great honesty and humility and power. It was never about her…. I can't think of another female star in American entertainment who has endured for so many people in their hearts.

I knew the day would come and dreaded it. It came and I cried for a friend who made my childhood happier. A young girl who inspired me to sing. A woman who inspired me to care. I love that when she received the SAG Award she stopped at the stairs and did a little tap step. She's forever loved!
