Very sorry to learn that Jonathan Crombie has passed away. Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite series as a child (first the books, then the films) and Anne’s innate goodness, willful spirit, wild imagination, limitless passion and her struggles for recognition as a writer are traits that I relate to. Gilbert was Anne’s rock and nobody could rile Anne’s irascible nature like the boy who called her ‘Carrots’. I think we all fell in love with his boyish smile when he rescued Anne, and cried happy tears when that bridge came full circle again. Good-bye, Gil. Thank you for believing in my favorite redhead (and all us ‘Annes’ at heart). Spelled with an ‘e’.
