It's very surreal. Not a day goes by that I don't think about him.

I have to say, it still is rough. I'll admit, and I didn't want to say it here, it troubled me when I heard the clips from the second animated '66 movie and Adam sounded, well, kind of frail. But he was in his late 80s and Mother Nature and Father Time both remain undefeated, so I merely chalked it up to that. I just thought he would keep on keepin' on... :cry:

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news. I immediately stopped whatever I was doing and grieved. Later that night I got out the dvd set and watched a few episodes.

I know that I am a few days late on this post but this has been a week of watching a lot of Batman episodes, the movie, and the 2003 movie as well. He was truly a one of a kind human being whose mold was broke after he was born. He was always such a gentleman and delight to talk to at events. I treasure in my heart the (4) times that I was fortunate enough to see him in a (5) year span.

I am also late, and I also remember the day he passed.
I was asleep after a late night at work and my phone was blowing up. So many calls and texts that I thought that a family member had died.
Turns out I was correct.
