I was so saddened to hear of Her passing. I grew up watching her movies as with so many, and have shared them with my nieces. She has brought such joy and laughter to so many. They are timeless. She was a pioneer in breast cancer awareness. She was a role model for so many. My sympathy to the family

Sempre gostei de filmes antigos, mas, ao assistir a Pequena Rebelde, vi que não houve atriz mirim como Shirley Temple. Ela era completa, cantava, dançava, linda eu me apaixonei e passei a recomendar seus filmes para que outras pessoas também vissem.

How sad to hear of your passing. When I was a little girl people would call me Shirley Temple. I had curly hair and I was always dancing. I loved that and fell in love with you as I watched all of your movies growing up. Now that you are gone a part of me is too.Hope you are still here in spirit.

There will never be another Shirley Temple. Miss Temple helped pick up this country's spirits when it was at its lowest and it sure needs someone of her caliber now. I grew up watching her movies and still do . I have laughed ,cried ,and had my hopes restored because of her talents. RIP Bright Eyes.

I wrote a fan email to Shirley about a year ago; one I typed out with great care. I forgot to mention a story I think she would've been great in- Pollyanna,It would have been like the perfect character, as she was getting bigger. Not too long ago I saw Miss Annie Rooney, which wasn't all that bad.

Little Shirley Temple taught me laugh,sing,and seek the light in the world when many days were dark and cold. When she grew up and became an ambassador I felt pride as if I had grown and became important just like her. I can hear her songs in my heart even now when I feel sad,I know she's singing

I'm a 90's kid who never cared for movies that were too old for me. Until I read Shirley's autobiography, all of a sudden I couldn't care for anything else. I'm very thankful that a twist in destiny allowed me to know about her, she taught me so much even when our generations were decades apart.
