    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    It is sad to hear of the passing away of former child star Shirley Temple. Shirley Temple was a child star during my Mothers time, and my mother would tell me the wonderful stories of little Shirley Temple, and her beautiful voice, the famous and cutest song was On a Good ship Lollypop.... My mother used to tell me she even had a Shirley Temple doll which she got her father (my grandfather) to buy for her when she my mother was 12 years old. My mother even had a music book with all her photos as a child dressed in all the beautiful clothes, Shirley Temple was the real child star during my mothers time, and during that time people simply loved her even in far away Sri Lanka, sadly I don't have that music book, which was I remember a tattered book.



    I am writing today, this tribute to remember both Shirley Temple and my beloved Mother who loved and admired Shirley Temple so much, and I know had my mother been living today she would have been so sad to hear of her favorite star passing on.



    Rest In Peace dear Ms.Shirley Temple
