My mother was also named Shirley; she even resembled her. Her Shirley Temple doll had a special place on her bed; when she passed in 2012, we included the doll on a table next to her ashes at the funeral. When I heard of Shirley Temple's death, it felt like my mother had passed. God bless; RIP.

I watched Shirley's movie when I was growing up but they never meant as much to me then in the months' following my open-heart surgery in 2000. When body and spirit was at its lowest I turned to Shirley's movies and I just knew that "everything was going to be alright!
