From the time I met Freddy, he was always like a second father because he treated me like one of his own since Denie and I were so close. He constantly asked about school/work and was always so proud to hear of my accomplishments. Freddy was head strong and knew what he wanted. Even on his death bed, Freddy knew he liked his nails more round versus square when I was giving him a manicure. He knew how to make anyone laugh with his sense of humor. I'm grateful that I was blessed to be able to meet and be in the presence of the one and only, Freddy Linares.
