Pat’s Tavern by Thomas J. Cranegave the name of his accomplice until 12 years later and then he gave Frank’s name. Since Frank proved that he was innocent, the man went back and served his time. Not only did he commit a horrendous crime, but he violated a mob rule and that was to never include the family in any of your mob doings. It was part of the honor code.Frank came in another day and said to my father, “If you let me take Tom under my wing, I will make him a millionaire.” My father said, “that is nice of you to say, Frank, but I do not think that Tom wants any part of that.” There are times that I wonder if my father might not have given a different answer. As time went on I began to learn more and more about why my father needed so many white shirts as his stories about the casino went on.105
