JIM YEATES

Hi Amanda,

I worked for your Dad for a year or two in Tulsa and really enjoyed knowing him! I am very sorry to hear of his passing.

Jim would farm out sizing and lubing of his high linotype bullets and I processed over 30,000 bullets for him in one run alone. It was hard work but the product was great and Dad treated me very well. He was a great guy!

Thank you so much for your kind words; I can't describe how much hearing things like this mean to me.
I actually used to run the luber/sizer occasionally for him when I was a teenager, 20 something yrs ago
