This is my main concern at the moment... I am wondering if I killed  
off an essential process when I killed off those shells...

It doesn't seem like it, because everything seems to be working.

I'd love to restart the server to see if they come back to life, but  
that would ruin my uptime stat. As a newbie admin, I take great pride  
in my 152 day, 100% uptime stat. (Hey, it's the little things in life  
that make me happy... it obviously isn't the money :-)
