Replace parking brake shoes in pairs

I'm presently doing my rear brakes (replacing rotors and pads on both sides). When I removed the rear rotor on the passenger side, one of the parking brake pads just fell off its mounting plate. The drivers side parking brake pads look fine. So I'd like to replace the parking brake shoes on the passenger side: should I also replace the pads on the drivers side as well (i.e. should parking brake pads be replaced as pairs on both sides of the axle)?
