PostPosted: Nov 16, 2013 09:06    Post subject: In Memoriam - Dr. Joan Viñals passed away  

Dr. Joan Viñals passed away yesterday. He was the main highlight of the recent Spanish mineralogy and an indefatigable help for beginners and professionals.

His decease is a very bad news for the mineralogy, discoverer and publisher of several new species we will miss him a lot in Spain as well as the international mineralogical community will miss him. Probably other FMFers will express better than me whom really was the Dr. Joan Viñals, currently I'm too sad to do better.

More infos here (in Spanish language) -> http://www.foro-minerales.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=101482#101482

Rest in peace Joan, we already miss you.



Thank you for everything Dr. Joan Viñals.jpg

I would like to add my voice to that of Mark's. We also lost a close friend a few days ago! We know what it feels like!

Hi Jordi!
Please accept also my condilences from Italy! I have never known Joan, but I perfectly know what it means to lose a dear friend all of a sudden, moreover if he/she wasn't so old. But I think a dear person is never old enough for dieing!
Greetings from Italy by Riccardo.
