He’s gone. Batton Lash, the love of my life, my husband of nearly 25 years, left us this morning at 11:00. The brain cancer that he had so valiantly fought for the last two years suddenly recurred in November and was very aggressive. He died in our home accompanied by friends, family, and caregivers. We have no plans for services yet, but at some point we will have celebrations of life in both San Diego and New York.
Thank you to everyone who has been so l supportive during this difficult time. Bat was well-loved by all who knew him, and he appreciated all the messages he received from friends/family in all eras of his life, from childhood in Brooklyn to SVA to the Brooklyn Paper and then the comics industry over the past 25 years.
I will do my best to make sure that his plans for Supernatural Law/Wolff & Byrd are carried out. He left behind many projects, notes, ideas . . . his creativity knew no bounds.
I’m heartbroken and miss him so much. I still can’t believe he’s not here .
