No need to use ls, you can use wildcards directly in the 'for':

        echo -n "Stopping $DESC: "
        for i in /var/run/$NAME*.pid; do
                if [ -f "$i" ]; then
                        kill `cat "$i"` 2> /dev/null;
                        rm -f "$i";
        echo "$NAME."

If there is no pid file, /var/run/$NAME*.pid will not expand and
stay literally /var/run/$NAME*.pid. That means the '-f "$i"' test
will nicely fail, and the kill/rm is not done.
