Dear Prof. Jose Valle,
Congratulations on your great success in researching astro-particle and high-energy physics and also in organizing such a amazing research group named AHEP. I apologize for not visiting to Valencia to celebrate, but here is my message and recent photo from Japan.
During my stay in Valencia (2006-2008), I was really impressed by your passion and honesty on physics, and I could develop my capacity for physics very much. Even though I had changed my field to medical physics and now I'm working at a hospital and medical school, the experience at AHEP is till in my mind and it is applicable to my current work. My wife (Hiroko), daughter (Shiho) and son (Osamu) are all fine. Shiho was actually born in Valencia so she is native "Valenciana" forever.
I'm pretty sure you will continue your success, but please don't forget to take care of yourself.
