Shirley meant the world to me when I was little and she still does. When I'm feeling low I just watch a Shirley movie and I'm better. Thank you Shirley for all the joy and happiness you have given me and to the world. No one can take your place. You are one of a kind

Every weekend I would help my mum clean our house, so as a treat we watched Shirley Temple movies together!
I will, always, remember my trip to Dallas for Shirley's estate auction & her daughter Susan coming over to my chair & congratulating me with a big hug!

I discovered who Shirley was when I was 12 years old in 1991.After that, I was hooked! I collected everything Shirley and still do to this day.In 1997, I was in a pageant, and I did a skit about her for my talent portion.I was so excited when I got to see her costumes in person in Louisville, KY!

Shirley meant so much to me & so many others.She will never be forgotten. Thru her unfortunate passing we were able to meet her children & great grandchildren & form forever lasting friendships. Even luckier still to be able to purchase many things from her own personal collection. I feel honored

Thank you for speaking at her birthday party. <3 On the evening of 11/8 I turned off the TV and turned on "Curly Top." Even as an adult, watching a Shirley Temple movie makes me feel like the world is a kind and safe place in which everyone can get along, as long as we love and care for one another

I started watching Shirley Temple's movies at a young age. She's always been my favorite actress in the world. Loved watching her sing and dance. I just need one more movie to add to my collection and that's Little Miss Anne Rooney. Shirley you will forever be loved and missed.

Shirley kept me company when I was a shy little girl and watched the weekend ST Film Festival with my grandmother. She became my best friend when I was 4-5 yrs old. Many years later I became pregnant with my daughter. Her due date: April 23! I knew she was meant to be. Yes, she was born on that day!

Dear Shirley,
Thank you for always being a constant inspiration in my life. From the time I was a little girl up to even now, I have always admired your mad dancing skills and happy feet. I know you must be having a blast up in Heaven. I'm sure you're tap dancing and singing on the streets of gold.

Shirley was a legend by the time I was old enough to watch her movies as a child. She was 18 years older than me, so she was an active and civic-minded adult as I was growing up. She will always represent the gift she gave her country: optimism in a bleak era, and we owe her a lot. We miss her.

I'm only 18 years old, so her films were before my generation. I grew up watching her because I was always told I had curls like hers. Kids my age don't really know who she is and how much she accomplished in her life. She was my role model growing up. May she rest in peace.

I've been an avid admirer of Mrs. Black and her filmworks and I still am. To me, she was unscathed by the glitz of being famous, but she did exude that je ne sais quoi in everything she did. I miss her and will be a fan always. She was elegance. Thank you Mrs. Black for your contribution to films.

One of my moms childhood memories during the depression was of her neighbor giving my grandma money, to get my mom a "SHIRLEY TEMPLE" dress for her birthday.As my mom always wore banana curls.With the depression, and 10 children to raise, my mom never got her SHIRLEY TEMPLE dress! God Bless Shirley.

I returned to school this week, and the first thing my 2nd grade grade class asked was when we would watch the next Shirley Temple movie! We shared a unit of her songs and age appropriate films last year and had so much good parent feedback. She is a joy to watch on the screen.

I grew up loving Shirley and thinking so highly of her as a moral example. That's something you can't find even in the youngest of today's actors, which is a sad commentary of our time. There will never be another Shirley Temple. My husband and I still enjoy her movies. Thank you, Shirley. :-)

I adored Shirley Temple when a child and shared her with my children who loved her as had I, and more so! My son was besotted with her, and came running from play to sit enchanted at her charm and beauty. At age seven I broke his poor little heart by gently telling that Shirley was grown up. He wept

The love, beauty, charm and simple ways of a child can stir hearts, move souls and trump adult pretentiousness. Shirley sang and danced, smiled and giggled, and it lifted us high. There is a brighter light there, and she embraced it and reflected it back to us. God forbid we should ever forget her.
