We are all stunned and saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Ferran. Yes, he was like a father and a brother to us, leading us through life experiences and research explorations with fun, with humor, and with kindness.
Ferran welcomed Estie and me and our family to Spain, took us into his home and his family. Teresa, Eduard, Blanca -- we feel your deep loss.
Ferran had an amazing taste for problems, and his enthusiasm was infectious. He always had a healthy balance of work, of play, of eating and drinking, and music and art, with his great creativity and his many talents and always with the kindest and friendliest disposition. We sorely miss you Ferran.
