We were honored to attend a mass for the intention of our family tonight in Gustine.  The President of the Our Lady of Miracles Festa is a longtime family friend and my father in law's Godchild.  John Toste grew up on the dairy with Leroy where his father worked for my father in law for many years.  Leroy and John were so close as children it was as if John was another brother.  Although time has taken them in different directions, I know that Leroy still feels as though John is more than a friend... He truly is a member of the family.  There is a unique bond between John and the rest of the family.
