Freddy Fender, a man I will never forget. Freddy came to Phoenix frequently and it was during an appearance at the ARIZONA STATE FAIR in the late 70's that we saw him at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. After his show, Freddy stayed to sign autographs and the crowd was pushing and shoving toward the stage where he was seated. My 4 year old son was almost overtaken by the pushing crowd. I looked up at Freddy and he saw what was about to happen to my son. He motioned to me to lift him up to him and said, Come here Mijo, and sat him on stage right next to him. He was so kind and down to earth. I loved Freddy for his music and for the kind man he was. I will never forget him or his kindness.
