    Gloria and Keelie:  My deepest sympathies in the loss of your husband and father.  Death does not separate the memories or love that you had for Jim.  He will be missed but you can rejoice that he has found a home waiting for him.  There will be rock times and times where you think you won't be able to go on but always remember that Jim will always be with you and that you now have a guardian angel to watch over.  You will make it and remember that your friends will always be there to help and listen when  you need to vent.  All my prayers for both of you.

    Dear Gloria - As sad as we are for you in the loss of your dear Jim, all we could think when we saw the notice of his passing was: Wow, did we all have a lot of fun!  We brought the crazy to local politics and Jim was our ring leader: Those events at the apartment were epic. We (almost) always won, and even when we didn't, we laughed. Oh, how we laughed! Jim was much loved and will be so fondly remembered by so many! Our loving memories and most sincere  condolences are with you and Keelie.

    Doc Fallon was a mentor to me when I first began practicing fresh out of Palmer.  He was dedicated to his patients and a truly principled chiropractor.  He will be missed by all those whose lives he touched.

    Gloria and Keelie, my wife Melda and I extend our sympathy to you on the passing of Jim.  He served our profession well both in practice and in leadership of the IPSCA.  I can still hear his voice in addressing our IPSCA meetings and in conversations.  Jim was a gentle soul who was dedicated to all he encountered.  Eternal rest grant onto Jim, O Lord.  And let perpetual light shine upon him.  May Jim's soul and all of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

    Gloria, we were so sorry to hear about Jim. We truly valued the friendship you and Jim showed us, especially during our election run. It's hard to believe that it was 25 years ago this month that we gathered in your upstairs apartment to await the results. What a great night! We will always remember the kindness that you and Jim showed us and are keeping you and your family in our prayers.

    Dr. Fallon taught me so much at Palmer, but more than anything I will always remember him as a good man with a fun sense of humor. He will be greatly missed.

    Gloria and Keelie,  On behalf of the Zarbuck Family I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to you and the rest of your family. I always admired Jim when he went to Palmer College and made Chiropractic his second career. This was no small feat and he went on to serve our profession with great proficiency and passion as a doctor, association office holder, mentor and Palmer teacher. Jim's caring nature combined with his soft spoken sense of humor will be missed by many. God Bless Jim Fallon and may he rest in peace. We pray the fond memories of your Husband/Father will comfort you now and in the future.

    Greetings from our second home in Montana where news of Jim’s passing reached me.  I was flooded with memories of all the times George and I and our three children would come together for adjustments after school.  Jim did a lot of family “counseling” with us and we would laugh and laugh.  He was very special to all of us.  Long after those days, I always looked forward to seeing you and Jim at the Grand Detour Art Fair where he was always ready with a big hug.  He was such a kind man.  May your memories strengthen and sustain you at this difficult time.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Sincerely,

    Kathy Bouska

    Oh I am so sorry to hear of this. I just saw it in the paper. He was a great man and a great chiropractor. His birthday and my birthday we on the same day so I had to make him a homemade apple pie every year. He was so good and caring to all the people that knew him.

    He is in all our prayers and may God Bless.
