Re: Rest In Peace, Lenny :( I'm a lurker, I love this site yet i'm always I don't know . . . hesitant and nervous to try join in on online communities, I just like to hang out in the shadows and read along with all the news and goings on in our Bat-fan world.
but, I had to post on this thread. When I heard the route 29 Batman had sadly passed away, I felt so sad. it really hit me, even tough I never had any contact with him. yet I always knew of him, friends would send me links to the news stories about him. I always said if I won the lottery i'd do what he did, he inspired a dream.
I always find it so hard trying to explain to people why dressing up in a cape and a cowl is so much fun, but seeing peoples reactions.. its priceless.
Lenny did that for kids, just to help bring them some happiness.
That ladies and gentleman, is the closest thing in this world we will ever get to a real life super hero. My thoughts are with his family.
Rest in Peace Lenny, I have nothing but respect and admiration for the life you led.
In memory of Lenny Robinson Very sad, had contact with him in 2007, he got some licensed Batman cowls from me, he was a very friendly guy,seems he died in the suit he loved to wear. What a great man, he will be remembered!

Re: Rest In Peace, Lenny :( This is one snippet from a 2 hour long interview with the legendary Lenny B. Robinson. He is an inspiration, a role model, and most of all, he was a regular human being. Lenny chose to help people, and he always reminded us, you don't have to be a superhero to do good in the world. Please share. Rest in Peace friend. May your message and spirit carry on forever.
Re: Rest In Peace, Lenny :( It's sad he died it's very sad, but he should be celebrated ! The work he did for kids is so awesome I can't find word for it other then awesome. You could also use important. The Lord blessed him he had good life he died doing what he loved. God bless him and his family. Now he's looking down on us saying who steps up to fill my boots. Thank you for your work sir. :signal
Re: Rest In Peace, Lenny :( Fate has taken one of our brethren from us to swiftly to out mind.The need must have been great to call one of our staunchest bat brothers. Wherever the signal shines we are safe in our lives knowing he is on the job.
The need must have been great indeed for it also called Batgirl and has take her from us.
Lenny, Yvonne, we will miss you both and remember you in the memories of those things that you did in life.
Silly, some would call this hobby of hours. They are right, it is silly. It's silly to spend hudreds of dollars on a hot sweaty rubbersuit for no reason. But children in the hospitals saw past the foolishness of the naysayers.
They saw Batman, and for a moment they weren't deathly ill patients, some suffering in great pain, From visits like Lenny's they became simple children happpy at the special attention and the love that was emoted. It wasn't silly to them.
God Speed Lenny.

Re: Rest In Peace, Lenny :( I vaguely remember this story. Was this guy a BOTB member? I'm reluctant to make this a sticky topic. First of all I pretty much reserve that for board announcements and such. Secondly, if this guy didn't even post here (I don't ever recall him) even though he was doing good work in costume I would be concerned with immortalizing him here by "stickying" this thread.
