When I heard of Freddy's death I was shocked and very saddened. I was raised on his music from a very young age. Basicly from birth. My mother used to play Freddy Fender records (YES, RECORDS) over and over. I loved his music and the messages that he convayed in it. My daughter, who is 9 years old now, is as much in love with his music as I was when I was her age. She knows all the words to most of his songs and loves to sing along with him. His music has touched 3 generations of my family now and I have no doubts that it will touch many more to come. Rest in peace, Freddy and God Bless You and your family. Thank you for all the memories that your music brings to life for me.
