Shepherd's Crook Back to Business After Deadly Church Fire


OCEAN CITY, Md.- For the first time since the bizarre Ocean City church fire, Shepherd's Crook, which went up in flames, is back to business.

Brenda Dingwall lost her husband, Father David Dingwall, in the flames.

"You can't change what happened. And I miss David desperately and I will miss him for the rest of my life," said Dingwall.

Brenda said there's no other option. She's not missing out on helping those who need it the most. So she's at Shepherd's Crook rain or shine.

"It's a family. We know each other's name. We know the stories and we know the pain."

Sometimes that pain is hard to handle.

"You take a risk of getting too close," said Director of Shepherd's Crook Bruce Young. "It's risky."

But young believes it's all worth it.

"I think it's vital to help people who do have as much; that are struggling," said Young.

Close to 50 people are fed every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, according to Young. That number climbs in the summer, doubling to about a hundred people.

"The difference them and us is maybe three paychecks," said Young.

Some folks said they can't imagine Shepherd's Crook closing its doors.
