    I have known Shirley for a long time. She was a good person and a good friend to me. She was a good Christian lady and she was always there to help you out if you were in trouble and she never had a cross word. If she saw you needed a friend to listen she would be there to listen and pray for you. She will be sadly missed, Frankfort lost a true angel. Shirley you will be missed.

    Shirley was a bright spot in my life as a young child growing up. Uncle Raymond Graves and I used to attend the Bible Study at Main St. And we would sing specials. Shirley was such a sweet lady but certainly not a pushover. She meant so much to my entire family my whole life and my prayers are with the family. You will be greatly missed Miss Shirley Temple as I grew up calling you that on any given day.

    She was like a mom to me that I never had I will always remember her. She talked to me when nobody else would. Rest in peace mamma until we met again. God bless you, I love you so much and I miss you.
