    Toni said of her Dad,
    We were young, when our parents were divorced,
    but we went to see our dad all the time,
    because we were crazy about him.
    We knew we could never get away,
    with anything bad, because he had a stern look and the master's voice.
    He was also old fashioned.
    Toni married Donald LaCava, nephew of director
    George LaCava,, in May 1956.
    Duke gave his daughter in marriage
    at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, in Hollywood.
    A lavish reception followed at the Beverly Hills Hotel,
    given jointly by Duke and Josephine Wayne.
    Duke was enraged that his present wife Pilar not invited!

    However Toni and Pilar became best of friends,
    and on location on The Alamo
    they used to visit San Antonio and Dallas together,
    to get away from Brackettville.

    Toni, sadly passed away in December 2000 of lung cancer.

    But, on a positive note, going on to Facebook, one can find the La Cava children ( though, not children anymore ) Anita, Christopher, Kevin, and Peter, all friends with Ethan, Marisa, Michael, and Patrick Wayne.

    And all friends with the John Wayne Cancer Foundation.

    If we can build up our message board Facebook site, perhaps they may want to become friends with it too.
