The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. And if you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place. And, after all, isn't that what life is all about?

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and volunteers of The Shepherd's Center of Chesterfield, we would like to extend our deepest condolences on the recent passing of our beloved volunteer, Annie Pal. She will always be remembered as a warm and incredible positive person who love to help others.
This past Friday, Annie was hard at work in our office scheduling clients needing transportation to their critical medical appointments with our volunteer drivers. Annie was always giving to others to make their life better-she was an enormous force for good in our world. She will be greatly missed by our Shepherd's family and our community.
With much love and sympathy,
The Shepherd's Center of Chesterfield's Family
