Re(1): Urgent news: kellyaga has passed away

I met Kellyaga one year ago. He gave me my first basket, and got me hooked on learning to play the game. I've gotten to know him very well this past year through both playing with him and planning to promote college night. I remember the first time I called him MISTER Kellyaga; he politely said, "Son, if you ever call me mister again, I might just throw the pelota at you!"

I was in awe the one time I went to his home; it was like a Jai-alai Muesuem. He was a great advocate of the sport and I wish our Orlando College Night dream would have came true. I talked to him briefly just several hours before the accident...at the fronton...watching jai-alai...a great passion of his. I will miss you Kellyaga. Thank you for being a great friend.
