Another great one has left our earthly plane.

But not before entertaining, delighting, and inspiring countless millions across generations by sharing his most wonderfully creative mind.

Rest in peace, Ray Bradbury.

He lived in peace and will continue to live forever in his words and thoughts.
I knew of his illness and I am sure that he has found relief and a new beginning. We on this earth have been enriched and challenged to strive and create.

Remember Ray and his work.

A fellow Illinoisan, born nearby where I live, Bradbury was born in Waukegan, IL. Loved reading his books. He will be missed by many.

Read "The Illustrated Man" in an SF as Literature class in high school. What little the teacher knew about SF&F she learned the previous summer. Picked some winners, though - Childhood's End, Planet of the Apes, R.U.R. My girlfriend and I wound up helping teach the class the next semester......

All I can add to what has already been said is "Thanks, Ray".

As long as his works are read and enjoyed, he will still be with us.
