This is how it happened. This is how the Batman died.

"Thank you, Lenny. For everything."

Leonard,
In your face...I saw the Face of God...Merciful, Empathetic with Action and pure Love.
Yes, Everyone, as a retired teacher of severely impaired students, I will testify the truth: You have two choices in life #1 Create in Love #2 Destroy in Hate.
The funny thing is that Hate can't destroy Hate. Only Love can do that. Leonard was LOVE INCARNATE! To his timeless Spirit, I ask for his continual encouragement in endeavoring to be loving in everything I do. I know you are listening Leonard, I feel it..and am smiling. Thank you, my friend.
Love Eternal,
John

A man who without expecting anything in return, invested his effort, his time and money ... only to return happiness to children who were going through difficult times ... Lenny, although you left more than two years ago, your legacy will always live in our memories. Rest in peace Real life heroe!

We had the very good fortune to meet Lenny on Halloween 2014 in New York City when our daughter was coincidentally dressed as bat girl. He was so very kind and generous and such a lovely man. The world has an empty space without him. Our condolences to his three brave sons. He loved and I am sure still loves them so very much.

Lenny's actions of hope for children showed a selfless character with a strong commitment for an honorable cause.
I hope you, his family and friends, find comfort in all the good he did, and that your sorrow for this tragic loss is outweighed by his legacy.

I did not personally know Lenny, but my brother Alex (a luxury auto dealer) knew of him and told me about him. I have worked with disadvantaged and terminally ill children myself and was touched by Lenny's dedication and heartfelt work with children. I imagine he has inspired so many with his uplifting and selfless ways. He seemed to have a great sense of humor too and brought smiles to countless little faces I'm sure. I just want to send the family my most sincere love and gratitude for his contributions to others and say thanks Lenny, for embracing what is truly important in this life, being a light and ray of hope for others. God bless you.

Lenny, may the good LORD bless your soul for caring. It is a most wonderful thing you did for the sick to bring joy to those who have none.

You lived your life as you saw fit and it just so happened that your choice was to be the light at the end of the tunnel for terminally ill children. Your life is an example to all. You are the true example of selflessness and I pray others follow the example you have set into play. Your life met a tragic end but you will never be forgotten and your memory will live on.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Lenny Robinson, but hearing his story warms my heart. When all is said and done, Lenny can best be described as a loving man with a Christ-like spirit. Surely Jesus had him in mind when he spoke the words at Luke 23:43. My condolences!

To a hero who was very kind and compassion and filled with love to sick children. Lenny I want to thank you for being the person you was to all people who knew you. Thank you for being so kind to my grandson sending autographed pics and toys. They was so excited to get a gifts from BATMAN. I love to post anything about BATMAN one your page and I did it often. My first post was high heels shoes with glitter and a Batman emblem. I laughed when you wrote. "I would look funny wearing those". GOD made you SPECIAL Lenny B Robinson. Fly high in HEAVEN! To the family, may GOD comfort you and heals your sadness in your heart. Sending many sweet prayers to everyone. Please keep Lenny's legacy going, I know he will be smiling from HEAVEN guiding you♡♡♡

It hurts my heart that a great soul was taken away so tragically. He was an inspiration to so many children who knew & felt in their hearts that he was a true Superhero. I hope that his spirit will live on & that others continue with his cause to help those children that are in need of hope, happiness & love. I cry every time I read about Mr. Robinson's passing. I hope his family knows how much he has touched other people's lives in such an intimate & amazing way. Rest in peace, Batman, may you be live on forever in those that remember & love you.

I didn't know Lenny Robinson personally but I'm amazed by the way he gave back to make a sick child's day a little brighter. I too am a huge Batman fan and have worn my own costume a few times this has inspired me to help keep the work of Lenny moving forward. My heart felt condolences to the Robinson family, the world has lost not only a true hero but a great man. Lenny you will be missed and not forgotten we will continue on.

Wish I were a fraction of the person Lenny was. I'm so inspired by such a loving giving person. A special person who could make children smile. The Lord favors those who are kind to His little ones. Lenny is sitting next to the Throne Of God. Angels are singing in honor of Lenny's life. Spread your wings and soar Batman. We will never forget you.

I am so sorry for your loss. For the sons, parents, and extended family he was your loved one. For everyone else, he was a much admired man. His legacy of sharing a smile and his big heart will last longer then we can imagine. In every child's memory, he will be remembered. I hope it brings comfort that he was loved by so many. God bless your family.

Mr. Robinson heard about my daughter who has severe hearing loss and was a huge Batman Fan! After reading her essay on why Batman was her role model, he came by our home in his Batmobile and surprised her! It was a day she will never forget, meeting her superhero, having Batman in her room and sign his name on her wall! Thank you for not only making her dream come true but dreams for countless of other children all over! A true man of God and an incredible job well done! Rest easy! Prayers and thoughts to the Robinson family from my family!

To the Robinson Family:
My sincere condolences to you on the untimely death of Mr. Lenny Robinson. I first noticed the contributions to society that Mr. Robinson was making when I saw a television segment where he visited sick children in the hospital spreading joy and laughter to one and all.
The world has been made a better place by his presence here on earth and I'm sure God Almighty has welcomed him openly into Heaven's paradise. His lord said unto him, Well done thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the lord. Matthew 25:21.
Anthony Hines, I

I met Mr. Robinson just Friday, and even then I did not see his face. Batman came to the child care center at our church, Morris Memorial United Methodist Church in Charleston, W.Va. He made quite an impression. I was touched by his love for the children. We were shocked to hear of his death. The family is in our prayers.

Thank you so much Mr Robinson. It is so good to know that there are still selfless, kind, wonderful people like you who gave so much of yourself so that others less fortunate could be happy, even if just for a brief moment. No, God did not take you, He doesn't cause us pain . You were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Your reward will be Paradise.
August 18, 2015
Thanks Lenny for your Spirit and gift of Love for others, especially the kids. The world lost a true Super Hero. I hope your Legacy inspires us ALL to be a little kinder to everyone we come in touch with on a daily basis. God Bless you, your family and your Legacy.

I am so, so saddened to hear about Lenny's death. He was such an inspirational and good man; you couldn't help but smile when you read articles about him. That video on him and the police officers was priceless. He was a gentlemen and the country has lost a irreplaceable man.
My deepest sympathy to his wonderful family. You were truly blessed to have this man in your lives. May his good deeds be remembered forever and his memory will never die.
