I heard the sad news this morning that Shirley Temple Black passed away at the ripe age of 85.
There is much to admire about this remarkable woman. As a bouncy-curled child, her dimples and talent brought a generation through the Great Depression. She was an admired diplomat and had a loving marriage of 54 years. She gave a voice to breast cancer survivors at a time when such things were seldom discussed in public.
Rest in peace, Shirley. Entertain them upstairs, hear?
