A round-up of Jonathan Frid memorials

Family and friends gathered for a celebration of Jonathan Frid’s life on April 18 at Sammy’s Restaurant in Ancaster.

 My e-mail has been flooded during the last few days as the death of Jonathan Frid has spread around the world. It seemed like it took a few days for the mainstream media to determine if his passing was newsworthy and, when they did, news spread like wildfire. A few days ago I highlighted some of my favorite comments about the actor, mostly from friends and coworkers, but thought I'd share some links to some other sites, as well.

Special thanks to the members of Facebook's Jonathan Frid Discussion Group for sharing some of these links.
