I remember Frank very fondly. He was a caring physical therapist who had great empathy for his patients because of a prior serious leg injury. He was very proud of his son Cody who played football at Oak Lawn and then at Eastern Michigan. Here's the story though: Frank accompanied me to several Notre Dame football games over a period of 3 to 4 years. On one day, Frank stayed out all
night at a nice bar that I brought him to. I picked him up at 5AM on game day and went to our tailgate location. He went into the bushes and slept for about 5 hours. We still remember him coming out of the bushes after he woke up. At the game, Frank sat with me. We played USC. The game was tight. Midway in the 4th quarter we were up by 10 points, but I was still nervous. Frank, sharp as a tack and someone who knew football, said, "the USC players are sitting on the bench and have given up. They are beat." He was right. I learned from him, that day, that one can tell a lot by looking at the whole picture.
