Frankie Jean Lewis Terrell – Farriday, Louisiana RIP

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here


The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Thunderbird RV Resort in Monroe, Washington. I’ve been here many times before. I’m scheduled to leave here tomorrow..


I’ll be hanging out in this general area until about the beginning of October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.


(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about three weeks.)




Today’s subject…



A couple of nights ago, I watched a video about Jerry Lee Lewis called Great Balls Of Fire.











I got to wondering if old Jerry Lee Lewis was still around…so I Googled him…and yes he is still performing. During my search, I stumbled upon the fact that his younger sister, Frankie Jean Lewis Terrell, age 71, passed away from a heart attack this past July 24th.

Back on March 22, 2013, I had the opportunity to meet this delightful lady when she gave me a personal one-hour tour through the Lewis home in Ferriday, Louisiana. She’s the only one living there now and maintains is as a Jerry Lee Lewis Museum…
