With tears in my eyes, I'm missing my friend terribly.
I "met" Freddy Fender at an early age growing up in Africa, when my older brother William played "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" and other songs. William had some tapes of the greatest musicians ever and these men have accompanied me whereever I went in word and song till today, aged 47. I don't speak Spanish or share common blood but never mind, Freddy Fender became an essential part of me.

We lose a good thing if we lose Freddy Fender! To the family, keep your hearts warm. He didn't hurt anybody but gave us his love. God bless you all.

*Wiliam's cassette tapes of the greatest musicians had ballads from Freddy Fender, Sam Cooke, Engelbert Humperdinck, Otis Redding and Percy Sledge. Try playing "There goes my Everything", "I've been loving you too long..", "Warm and Tender Love", with any of Freddy's.
