De and Carolyn's favorite charity was the North Shore Animal League. Please make it your's too. North Shore helps many thousands of abused and homeless animals. It will astound you the amount of abuse some of these animals have suffered.
The North Shore Animal League is the largest no-kill shelter in the world. Not just the country or the East Coast, but the world.
Oh God, here in my dressing room with the door shut, I am alone with Thee...Can not an actor be God's man? Convention classes me and my fellows among the loose and thoughtless. So Thou art my secret. I triumph inwardly to find Thy presence and taste the mystic joy of Thy friendship. While the world suspects not, Thou teaches me subtle ways to resist despair, to master my passions, to heal unworthy weakness; the rare medicine of Thy presene is for me, to, as well as for the cloistered monk or meditating scholar. Teach me to be great among the many who are content to be called great. Let me be an unusual person because of that simplicity of heart and lovableness of nature that I learn from Thee. Dr. Frank Crane (printed in "From Sawdust to Stardust: The Biography of DeForest Kelley" by Terry Lee Rioux) DeForest Kelley carried a clipping of this prayer in his wallet all his life.
