I longed to have the signature letter on all my clothes! She was so cool, independent, funny, and real. I adored her and wanted to grow up and be just like her. Years later, being able to meet both Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams (who played Shirley) was a dream come true! Penny went on to make some amazing films - Big and A League of Their Own to name a few - and I've always loved her work.
