When a bell rings an angel get it's wings

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." - Unknown

Last evening one of the downtown churches had advertised a Special Music Event featuring hand bells.  I love hand bells, in fact the Carol of the Bells is one of my favorite pieces of music, so I decided to get out the house and go have a listen.
It was a lovely presentation of hand bells, chimes, piano and the Women and Men's ensembles did a bit of singing along.
At the closing the Pastor announced that the evening was a tribute to church member who had passed months before.  She had played hand bells there for years and in her Will she donated funds to the church to buy new hand bells, since the old ones had become tinny.  I suppose the members knew that bit of information, but as a guest I thought what a lovely gift to give on your way out of this World.
