Cassidy Newman was a beloved child who character brought about a tide of story arcs for many yrs to come outside of just Nick and Sharon... Matt Clarke and Frank, Alice & Millie Johnson s/l then added the CHESTER Al was added it gave character's Grace,Tony and Michael major story SO having Once or twice a yr celebratory never bothers me and many others either but it sure does nudge underneath some folk feelings I also like what MG said about her story in his recent MSN Entertainment Interview.

The Cassie mentions never bother me. I love them. They are realistic and I agree that Cassie was an important part of the show.
During his run in Genoa City, Graziadei's character got wrapped up in an art forgery scam, got in over his head when he, Amber and Kevin stole money from a corpse, and like his father Danny before him, was drugged by a woman hoping to impregnate herself. As fans know, Daisy managed to succeed with Daniel where Phyllis had failed with Danny Sr..
There was also Daniel's online porn addiction, which Graziadei joked was his favorite storyline, but his biggest story was the death of Cassie Newman (Camryn Grimes). Daniel almost took the wrap for the car accident that killed Nick and Sharon's daughter and for a time, believed he was guilty. The painful tale fueled the Daniel/Lily loves story and sent the teens on the run, while also serving as a public service storyline about drinking and driving and under-aged driving.
"It's probably the most serious one that I've had," Graziadei said of that story. "It dealt with something that everyone can relate to and take away from - As opposed to being raped by some woman and being drugged or stolen money - or whatever the flavor of the week was! That was my first real storyline, too. The first one that kind of belonged to me."
