Requiem for a Friend
This page is dedicated to a man ahead of his time.
I first met Walt Bucklin when I visited Jason's house (my
friend and his son). Over the years, I would visit, either them
together or by themselves. Walt would talk about his time in
Maine, the pirate radio show he hosted, and other such gems
from the comfort of his Xanadu (his couch and Saints blanket).
Walt was the one who guided me on my path to being a writer.
Ironically, it was during this time when he found the strength
to put out his own book, written under Jason's name.
His death in 2007 took a great toll on all of us, especially his
son, Jason. Walt inspired him to write his own novel.
Though he is no longer on this physical plane, he still
remains in our hearts.
