    Why can’t we ALL just say, we are sorry he passed? Gheeze! Must everything be maypuis and politics? This man’s family is grieving and you all are arguing? Shame.
    One behalf of some of us who have a heart, I am sorry for your loss.

    @Telemaque, I am impressed that you were able to locate the Bello website on the internet. That makes you a genius, super smart dude.
    Talking about a call you made to Parry regarding Bello Hot Sauce at a time when everyone is expressing their condolences at his passing just doesn’t make any sense. It sounded silly and then you had to further knock the man down by saying he inherited a business but didn’t have the ability to run it.
    Just sympathize with the family and leave well alone. The man is no longer here to defend himself.
    Enjoy the Bello products.

    @Telemaque, man quit your foolishness on DNO. First, you talk about some nonsense call you made regarding Bello Hot Sauce, that company has been out of existence for decades and now talking about some business he inherited but didn’t have the ability to keep. Who told you that lie?
    The man is dead. Let him rest in peace, you sorry individual.

      “Let him Rest In Peace”? So who is disturbing his rest or peace? I don’t know what kind of rest we expect to have when we support a corrupt party or organization and a dictator who clearly has no respect for our constitution, one who has become exceedingly wealthy on the backs of poor people etc… one who gives favors to friends and business people in Dominica for their support. How do we rest after our involvement and support of such wickedness? Isaiah 57:21 “There is no rest for the wicked, says the Lord.” I didn’t say that. The Holy Bible says so.

        Very well spoken! NO person gets any respect from me who has supported or is still supporting this government or its leader either actively or passively. I’d regard it as treason to my beautiful country, it’s laws and it’s once sound society. They see corruption right in front of their eyes but still defend the indefensible. Why? For what reason? There can only be ONE reason… Wake up Dominicans and defend YOUR country against that enemy from within.

      You see people like you who does not have anything in your head, foolish with no commonsense, all you have is your cell phone which cannot educate you: running your mouth, off why don’t you simply shut up?

      Again, I am not looking for friends, so let me show you how ….. you are! There is a place in San Diego California 150 miles from my home in Los Angeles, and 65 miles from another residence of mine in the Inland Empire, where Bello products are alive and well, selling under the Dominica name Brand ” Bello.” How do you account for that you jack…

      I will allow you to embarrass, and disgrace yourself by talking about what you do not know; the longer you keep talking it’s the more you will expose how shallow you are!

      To say Bello shut down in Dominica a long time ago does not mean it cannot be existing elsewhere.

      Who knows, Parry might still be a shareholder in the company in San Digeo, if he told me how I could buy the pepper sauce from them; ask yourself how did he know the products are sold in America?
      Bello must be a registered copyright trademark, so that means somebody in Dominica must be collecting dividends for utilizing the name Bello okay!
      Plenty of you Dominicans are very jealous of me, you are jealous of my intelligence, and my Accademia.

      I am not the one who cause the jealous ones to be beneath me intellectually, so hating me will not help you, jealous satanic people, I will always be me, while your heart aches with jealousy each time you read my intellectual comments!

    In spite of our political debates in a certain forum, in which I suffered the brunt of insults; I sincerely wish to extend my condolences. We debated and insulted each other without animosity or hate.

    The last time we spoke without politics involved was when I called you to see if you could arrange to get me some Bello Hot Sause; you suppressed me by telling me you were no longer involved, nor associated with the company.

    Nevertheless, you directed me to a place in San Deigo not to far from my home in Los Angeles where I went and bought some.

    Your body shall remain from whence it came; but I pray that your soul shall rest in peace; gone hopefully, will not be forgotten!

    Parry Bellot made a name for himself with Link magazine and was a personality on the national stage from the colonial period through to the present time of what passes for Dominican independence. He held strongly to his views and was supportive of the governments led by Eugenia Charles, and Roosevelt Skerrit. He came from industrious roots- the Bello Company which made local jams, juices, and pepper sauce products being part of his family’s legacy. That proud legacy of local leadership and ownership of agro-industry, and the self-confidence and self-respect derived therefrom is sorely missed at this time. In his zealous defense of the government, he supported he certainly gave offense to some. Yet, Parry was possessed of a certain charm and was never known to degenerate into personal insult and profanity which has gained ascendancy in the political discourse on our island in recent times. May his soul rest in peace and his family accept my condolences and that of the Christian…

    I cannot believe you people putting thumbs down when somebody expressing their sympathy to the family of somebody who has died. Is so we come in Dominica? We can do better than that.
    My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Bellot. May his soul rest in peace 🙏

    RIEP Parry! Nothing but love for you because you had a way of daymoutaying Matt Peltier on air :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    I am sure that Blu-Blu and Dr. Blessings will breathe a sigh of relief that you will no longer be calling Matt for the sole purpose of deflecting and obscuring the topic at hand. Blue-Blue and Blessings can relax now since the fear of them bursting a being in anger has now vanished with you. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    He was one of those dedicated citizens of the soil who contributed to the society he grew up in all his life. A personal acquaintance of mine and peer. We extend our deepest condolences to his wife and full family circle. May he rest in eternal peace.

    “May his soul rest in eternal tranquility.” Looks like every body is playing “God.” Placing souls in places they themselves have no knowledge of, and places and tranquility they may never experience in their after life. What’s wrong with sympathizing with the bereaved? No. But you must determine where his soul should be. Mean while you have no idea of how he lived his life…all you know is that he was “Bellot” and bla bla bla.
