To the Family of Adam West...
I was six years old when Batman premiered on TV. My father was a huge Batman fan and we would watch this show together all the time. We would sometimes talk about something that happened on the show that I didn't understand and my dad would explain it to me. I grew up also a huge Batman fan and have always associated Adam as "my Batman". I discovered a Batman board quite by accident and joined immediately. Becoming a member of 66batman.com was to be a turning point in my life. I saw how others had created bat costumes and props and knew I had to create one too. So my wife and I with the help of tons of information and support from Batman fans built my costume. Now that I had a costume "what do I do with it?" Thankfully I met some fantastic people who work with charity groups and soon became a member in several. I can't relate the great joy I have received over the last four years helping out at hospitals, fund raisers, and charity events.
When I heard that Adam had passed away from Leukemia... I immediately thought of my father who lost his battle to the same disease at such a young age (he was 40).I am just one person who wanted to let the West family know that Adam had a huge impact on my life and I will always be grateful to him/Batman.
Hard to watch and not get choked up some. Beautifully done!tanino008 wrote: ↑Sun Jun 11, 2017 7:30 pm Last night was difficult to sleep, I was still shock with Adam´s passing.
I watch some of the special features from the DVD and I put together a little video from some Press conferences I assisted and some old events, and I wanted to share it with all of you.

I will echo what one of our members posted earlier - I'm so glad Adam had a chance to see the resurgence of interest in the show in recent years, and he did seem to really enjoy himself.
RIP to one of the good ones
I wish all of us well as we each cope with this loss in our own way.
