Yae loved his family, football and all the kids, he was the best babysitter ever! He was never caught without a smile. Yae protected and displayed unmatched loyalty to anyone he said he loved. Yae's pee-wee football years were devoted to the Patterson Park Vikings. If he wasn't playing football, he was walking the neighborhood with a lawn mower to keep money in his pocket. Yae's football career continued to North High Vikings, that's also where he began displaying love for music. We all knew his voice to carry it's own signature tune. During these years when most lose their friends to disloyal behavior him and his remained solid, mother's couldn't break their bond, BBM gang gang. He loved to spend most of his time at cousin/auntie Netra's, eating, playing the game, and hanging with his loved ones. His presence, smile and individual bonds he created with everyone will truly be missed.
