My condolences to the family. I will miss freddie Fender, I went to several shows of his,he spoke with me and I thought he was a very down to earth friendly person, no one can ever replace him, his style of music was original and that's why he was so loved by everyone. He was the best! He is in a better place in heaven and hopefully met my Mother by now, because she also loved his music very much when she was alive. I will always keep him alive with his music which I listen to all the time.
