It was a sad day for me when I heard that Freddy Fender (Birth Name: Baldemar Huerta) passed away. My condolences to Freddy's/Baldermar's family and friends for their loss, for I know what they are going through, for my sister Tammy passed away at age 41 on September 23 from lingering intestinal troubles.

Freddy, you helped open many roads to many entertainers of Tejano and Latino descent.

Freddy, to quote two of your songs, there were never any "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" when you on TV, recording, and on stage, although I never saw you in person. I hope to see you in heaven along with my sister Tammy and others like Elvis Presley, Buck Owens, and Conway Twitty.

Finally, the words of your song "When You Lose Me, Oh Yes, You Lose A Good Thing" are really ringing true now because you will now be performing in the heavenly choir, which by the way will be sounding a lot sweeter.

When they have the funeral services, they will praise both Baldemar Huerta, the man, and Freddy Fender, the legend. The funeral may be for Baldemar Huerta, but the legacy and legend of Freddy Fender will never die. God Bless You.

Rest in Peace, mi amigo, and Vaya Con Dios.
