A great actor and person, I

A great actor and person, I will miss you so much:( John In Ohio

Although I've never seen his

Although I've never seen his show, I am from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I have never heard of the Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton. It must be a small private hospital or a nursing home.Rest in peace, Jonathan. The Frid family is known to me as one who was in the construction business in Hamilton. I do occasional background work in films and commercials in Toronto, Ontario.

Dear Jonathan, I watched you

Dear Jonathan,

I watched you every afternoon after school. I would run all the way from the bus stop. Even when the had the new Dark Shawdows back in the 80's I watched it becuz i loved the story

I was another one who rushed

I was another one who rushed home from school every day to watch dark shadows!! I loved it and Barnabus! there would be no dark shadows without barnabus collins!!

I can't believe that no one

I can't believe that no one has commented. Jonathan was adorable as Barnabus. I used to love to see him mess up his lines, but he would just keep on keeping on. Rest in peace to an icon. You are missed.
