From Joseph Martin...

Frank used to sell me his preseason basketball tickets every year when he had the front row seat. He loved how happy it made me. We always had a great talk the morning after the games I attended. Any time I wanted the best information for KU basketball I knew right where to go. Only the best memories of Frank. May his memory be a blessing for all his family.
