old fashioned bell ringing

      Please join me in an old fashion bell ringing for our friend Denise, who lost her battle with melanoma cancer on January 6th.  

      I joined this site 4 years ago and experienced this bell ringing whenever a member whom everyone knew, lost their battle with melanoma.  I don't know where, when or who started it, and I would love to know.  For all who regularly read and post, I think it's a nice way to honor our Friend and send her to the heavens with our bells of solidarity and our quest to keep fighting and find a cure to melanoma cancer..

      So in honor of our Friend, Denise Kirley, please ring your bell in honor of her memory.

                                        I too will ring a bell here in Southern California for Denise Kirley.

                                        I followed her posts for about a year now and had continued to hope and pray that with each of her updates that she would recover and triumph from this nightmare cancer.  My thoughts go out to her family and friends. Such a terrible loss.
