My deepest condolences to the family. One of my very fondest moments of Mr. Frid is from a one-man show he did some years ago at the Lockwood-Mathews mansion in Connecticut. It was in December, and the mansion was decorated for Christmas. We read through the program, but the last selection was not stated. At the end of the performance, Jonathan opened a book and began to read to us. A loud shriek of joy emanated from the entire audience - Jonathan Frid was reading us "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas"!!!!! Later, on the autograph line, I told him, "I can die happy now - I've had Jonathan Frid read me Dr. Seuss."
