    I'm in shock today as I learned of the passing of my friend Juan C. Lopez. I had "known" Juan for years at the Miami Dolphins message boards as Phins17, an OG 3AM'r. Before that he had been a year or two behind me at Miami High, but it was only when I moved back to Miami recently that I finally connected with him in person, and found him to be one of the most genuine and nicest people I had known. I was lucky to share our mutual love of football, whiskey and cigars with Juan before he passed; but most importantly, his company. Whiskey or cigars, or both—hoist one to a good man next time you partake.

    Mods, if this is in the wrong place please move it.

    Wow man, sorry to hear that. Prayers, thoughts, and condolences to his family and all that knew him. It always sucks to lose a member of the Phin nation. May he RIP.

    I don't know. I hadn't seen Juan in about a year, at the last cigar event we attended together, and I hadn't been aware that he was sick. After a couple days I'll ask his son.

    Sorry to hear about the loss. I do remember him. A dang shame. I've witnessed plenty of losses. None less important than another. May he rest in peace with Jesus Christ.

    If I offend anyone with that last sentence...so be it. He IS OUR Savior. RIP our friend.

    Don't know him but my condolences to you and his family and his loved ones. Wherever he is now I am sure the Fins will win the Superbowl every year. And those left behind will dedicated this upcoming playoff run to him. May it be a run into February.

    Odd that he wasn't a dolphins fan on facebook, just the 49er's. But what a young age to pass away at...his family must be heartbroken. Condolences to the family and to you as his friend. I know sometimes you can make some good friends online.

    That's a relief, because that person is only 30.

    I am Juan C Lopez daughter and would like to thank you all for the kind words in behalf of my family. He lived for the dolphins and the dolphins family. This means a lot too his family and it means even more to him. We may not be in the same place tomorrow but we will be rooting for the same team.

    My heart is very heavy right now as I just read this. Brother Juan was a true gentleman all the way around. I had the opportunity to tail gate with him several years back with his family and friends when I made the trip out from California. He treated me like family. May you rest in peace bro. My prayers, thoughts and condolences to his family. He will truly be missed.
