I am so sorry that it was Mr. Fender's time to leave us. I can rember listening with my mother and her best friend to all of his beautiful music. I am certain that his music is what infused me with a love of the Spanish language, and the Latin culture of Mexico and Mexican Americans. I will be very sad for a long time. Thankfully, all of my favorite songs are recorded, and I can listen any time I want! What a beautiful legacy to leave.
Without Freddy Fender to lead the way, Carlos Santana, Ricky Martin, Celia Cruz, and yes even, Los Lonely Boys, would have a very hard time of it today.
