[JR: Thanks, Mike. Much appreciated.]

McEneney, Mike (MC1953)

[JR: Apparently, NOT ONLY does the Daily News forbid Google from index “their” obits, but they don’t use Legacy either. But they have added a search option. Argh! Would anyone like to apply for the position of “Jasper Jottings — Daily News Obit reporter”? Argh! Argh!]

[JR: I reviewed the 16 obits that show up in the new NYDN search obits facility. No news there. They were all reported in Jasper Jottings in a timely manner. FWIW! ]

  1. Thanks for posting. John was always a proud & loyal Jasper. As his son-in-law, I went to several Jasper basketball & baseball games with John, and he was rarely happier than after a Jaspers win. He was a good friend to so many, and a wonderful family man. John Cassidy will be fondly remembered . . .
