Re(4): Urgent news: kellyaga has passed away

Danny, I was with Kellyaga on opening night at Ocala. It was your debut performance and if I hadn't known otherwise, I would have thought he was your father. We were in the restaurant eating dinner but as soon as the first game started he went running down for the line up to cheer you on and to make sure you knew he was there pulling for you. He mentioned to me that you were wearing his pants which I thought was something only Kellyaga would do. He also showed me a clipping of the article about you in the Ocala paper. He was so proud of you. When you won that very first game it was as if you were living Kellyaga's dream. He will always be watching over you. I am glad you took his advice to play at least one year of professional jai-alai. He believed in you and in your abilities. He was right on the money. Keep it up and best wishes to you in your life on and off the jai-alai court.
