The frame with the white matte contains an original acetate animation cel from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, given to Ray by Walt Disney himself. Note the award on his left shoulder, given to him in 1993 for his television series, The Ray Bradbury Theater.

  1. I remember those living room shelves well — and the man in the middle. Thanks, Sam, for the celebration on this Halloween 2014!

  2. Jason!

    It’s great to hear from you. It makes me sad to know that we will never go into that house again, and that all of Ray’s belongings are no longer there and that he is no longer with us. It’s still so hard to get used to.

    I hope you are well.
