Our European Travel


March 1980, my mother, Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick Mancill, my step dad, Louis Clifford Mancill, myself Sally (Frederick) Fallin, and Richard Wayne Fallin traveled to England, France,¬†Belgium, Holland, and Luxembourg together to visit Richard’s brother Jerry Glen Fallin.

He was in the U.S. Navy stationed in Newquay, Cornwall, England. I met my sister-in-law Frances Katherine Aherne-Conroy there.

I thank God that we traveled when we did, because I got a chance to spend a lot of time with my parents before they left me.

My Dad passed away in 2002, and Mother passed away just this past March 9, 2012 in Rosharon, Brazoria County, Texas. They are dearly missed.

You never really get over it, you just learn to accept death as a part of life, and enjoy the time that you have with each other. My only solace is that we are Christians, and I believe that we will meet again one day in heaven where there is no more sorrow, no more pain.
