R.I.P Shirley. I grew up with her movies. My favorites were "Heidi" and "Rebecca of Sunneybrooke Farm." I remember wanting to be just like her. I even tried to do the staircase dance. Whenever my dad would go out to rent a movie, he always came back with one of Shirley's, because he knew how much i loved her. I'll always remember her.
You must be so devastated by Shirley's death. I know I am. This morning, my dad told me that she died and I couldn't believe it! I was just about to send her a letter telling her how much I adore her and her work! And the odd thing was, I listened to all of her songs last night before I went to bed, I haven't done that in a while. I started crying before I went to school:(
you were one of the first pages i followed on tumblr some three years ago and you do so well at posting interesting shirley temple pictures, and you're always helpful with any questions about her; i just wanted to thank you for helping keep shirley's memory alive, even before she died, and running for this beautiful blog to her, thank you. -sarah
