Mr. Yates, I have never met you or heard of you until I ran across this article on Google about you. When I get to heaven I hope I can meet and become a friend. We have a few things in common: love for grinding, love for real estate, and love for inspiring others to succeed.
By the way, my partner in throwing an annual new toy drive birthday party for the last 15 years has your last name, LaShaun Yates, which drew me to your cool life story. RIP Yates!

“Rest in peace,” the drums are still, The smoke has cleared, the battle ‘s done. And now forever yours to keep The golden prize that you have won. Against the sunrise on the hill, Your colors wave upon the breeze, With shield of honor, lance of truth, you overcame with such as these. No dirge of sorrow shall we play, For one who goes to meet the Lord. Could but we all be Heaven’s guest, As you receive your just reward. Dear blessed sleep that merely marks the ending of a holy quest, Your gentle touch remains upon The hearts of those who loved you best. Rest In God Arms💔🙏🏻

We didn't know Jeff but, we do know Jim and the sentiment and personality seem to be the same; "He must have been a great man". May God bless the rest of the Yates family at this time and bring them His peace in Jesus name. Shalom!
