“I am heartbroken. Don Chente with me was an angel all his life. He loved me very much and I loved him. Whenever I went to Guadalajara he came to my concerts and the only thing that comforts my soul, at this moment, is that every time we saw each other I told him how important he was to me. All my love and strength to his family and all of us who suffered this great loss.”

“Thank you, Don Vicente Fernández, for taking your great talent to the whole world through our beautiful Mexican music. Many of us like me grew up with your music and your movies, and every time we listen to your songs, we go back to our childhood when life was simple and fun. There is no person in any corner of the world who when listening to /Volver Volver,’ ‘El Rey,’ ‘La Ley del Monte,’ ‘Mujeres Divinas’ in your voice, does not feel the need to be in their Mexico listening to a good mariachi and sipping a tequila. Much peace and prayers for your beautiful family.”
