> Dear ichnofriends,
> It is with great sadness that I am writing to let you know of the tragic death of Jordi de Gibert. He suffered a stroke followed by a heart attack last night in his home town of Barcelona. I know that I speak on behalf of a lot of people if I say that I am in shock and in a state of disbelief. I am really devastated by the news of his death. Jordi was a very good friend and he will be deeply missed.
> Best wishes,
> Luis
