Kel was an AMAZING man. He overcame many odds to be an extremely successful inventor, something that 1% of the population does.
His landlord was a 'slum lord'. He refused to fix anything in the house and that house needed ALOT of work. No heat, no fire/smoke detectors, a gas leak in the stove/oven, falling trees, etc...Kelly didn't deserve to die this way and at the young age of 46.
Kelly, I will love you forever and ever and ever and looking forward to the time we can meet again and hug.

Kelly was a giant and sensitive man who always had time to help a friend sort through issues. He was sent from heaven, where he now rests. God bless you brother! G
