Farewell, Ray Bradbury

"This is The Man. He is the true son of Hal Foster." - Ray Bradbury, about me. Foster was the creator of PRINCE VALIANT, and from childhood on, Ray's favorite writer/illustrator. No father could have spoken any prouder words to a son, and it meant the world to me to receive them. They mean even more now. And they'll mean even more tomorrow. God protect your rocket, Ray, on this new magnificent flight. I am heartbroken with joy to have known you as I did, and I will love you forever.

Not even the banality of my 8th grade English class could render Farenheit 451 banal and trite.

How lucky you were to have not only met him, but to have had his friendship and regard, and you have my deepest sympathy.

91 years was not enough.
