  1. To the John Belitz family,
    I worked as a volunteer at Berkshire South Regional Community Center in Great Barrington with John. We, and others, served meals every Monday night to the community. John enjoyed the comradery with the volunteers. We had some interesting conversations together. I enjoyed having him in my life for a few years. He will be remembered by all the volunteers who had met and worked with him.
