To all those who read this from this point on... I dont know what possessed me to log back into this page so many months later but i am Glad i did.. To all those who know JOsh and are keepin his memory alive I thank you.. You guys are right he was a beautiful soul and unique in his own right.. He was not like all the others.. As for the comment about them being drunk or whatever.. Well that is not good enough.. and does noit excuse the fact that they took a life... They took all my nephews options and didnt give him a choice on whether to live or die.. which i might add at any given time they should of got back in the car and drove up before a gun was ever pulled.. they are cowards and were not man to stand up to my nephew.. they should pay and will pay before it is all said and done..Just because they are from dundalk and kids does not excuse their inability to make choices about right or wrong.. even drunk you never forget what you should eb doing or what you shouldnt.. The time is rapidly approaching and we will all get the answers we need.... trust me when i tell you justice will be served

I just wanted to say that i WAS friends with the boys who shot josh and idk how they could do something like that...they most definatley deserve life in jail if not the death penalty...its kinda hard for me to say becuz they were my friends but if u think u have the right to take someone elses life then urs deserves to get took too...so i just wanted josh and his family to know that i had no idea what the gun was used for at the time and me and my family prays for josh and his family and friends everyday becuz i know whats its like to lose a good friend...and one thing i dont understand....how could billy shoot someone for no reason when billys sister got shot for no reason...he should know how that feels...
well anyways the gibson family is in my prayers forever

I wanted to say that i consider myself an angel sent to watch over the gibson family in the lose of thier son, brother, cousin, nefew, and so on and so forth! i came forward about the knowlegde i knew about this murder to the police as soon as it became aparrent to me that i could not go another day with all this resting on me everynight! I told the police every little detail they needed to know to get these boy's! they told me that without me this case would have gone unsolved! there was nothing to go by everything happened so quick that the police were even stund! i never got to speak with josh's family and tell them everything i knew nd explain how scarry and nerve racking it was for me but i knew it was the RIGHT THING TO DO NO MATTER WHAT! i hope these boys come to justice and get what they deserve!
you r in my prayers!
much love,

I would of took his place if i could. he wasnt just a friend. he was a brother. a friend for life. when he said he had ur back, he had ur back. he was the most loyal friend anyone could ever ask for.
i just wish that i have answered his phone call the night of his murder. if i would answered his call it would of been me that was killed.(sry homies, buts lets face it, reaper did call me for help knowing that i would of helped him if i knew that he needed my help. I regret not answering his call. i wish it was me that took his place instead of him.) reaper u will always be loved, and remembered. now we all ask of u to watch over us and to keep us safe and away from the darkness. for which the day comes, we all will reunite be a big juggalo family. and for which u will be reunited with ur blood family.
we miss u brother. we love u brother.
juggalos will never die alone. when u left this world, u took all of our souls, and spirits and our hearts with u reaper. we love u brother and u will alwyas be remembered.
for which the legend will live on. may we all now bow our heads in silence for our brother reaper. and honor him, for which he just didnt fight for any reason but to keep his own. he fought to survive, he fought to keep is life. for which i give him honor for that.
reaper may fight sometimes, but it has to be important for him to fight. he doesn't just start fights with someone for no reason. he has always been there for his homies and his family when they needed him.
reaper we miss u and we love u.

your right.. they deserve more than life in prison... they DESERVE to be beat and shot in the same manner as josh...
they should be grateful to be able to keep there own lives... life in prison would be a gift... a gift that they are not worthy of!
sorry your "boyz" should be beat shot and killed.... along with you.
ur right the ppl that killed reaper deserves to be beaten and then killed and not by being shot, but by being beaten to death.

i was a qood friend of josh's , everyday i think of him , i could never possibly forqet this traqidy , he was not just a member , he was like my brother , he always had my back , i loove him so much , words cant explain the mourninq all of oushave incountered , its devastatinq to think that simply walkinq to meet yhuur ride home could end uhp like this , it shows all the heartless people that hurt and kill for the lauqhs , josh i will miss yhuu terribly . nothin can replace the qood times we had , MMFCL bro . 4/4/91-1/28/09 R.I.P JOSH

and if one of the people are readinq this , yhuu ouqht to be ashamed of yhuur self , takinq his life for shits and qiqqles , yhuu must truely be a heartless person !

josh was my best friend and i was the one who he was suppose to meat up with that night n i also knew the boys who killed him. they watched me grow up n they killed my bestfriend on the corner of my street. they all deserved what they got. they r lucky to get what they did . u say people make mistakes but that was no mistake , they knew what they were doing , there all grown n know the resalts of there actions. i was at all 3 of the court cases and i was the happiest person alive to see them go to jail and one more thing .. when josh got shot i was leaving my house to meat up with him.. if i would have left sooner i would b dead too.

So I was looking at photos of Reaper and me. So I thought I would google him to figure out who his murders are...

Well to Brooke because of this day this horrible night I am an alcholoic and don't kill anyone. Reaper was my best friend. I was raped and guess who I told, damn skippy it was Reaper and not only was I raped I turned out to be pregnant. And do to the stress levels of his death I missed carried the baby who Reaper was going to help me find a home to give my baby to. But do to your dumb "boyz" that couldn't happen so not only did they kill my best friend they killed my baby. And just FYI your boyz are grown ass men now and I hope they get ass raped every night in prison for the rest of their lives and when they get out I hope some one shoots them and you can watch. Then you see how it feels to loose a best friend. Your just as a horrible person as them I hope someone found you and knocked your teeth down your throat. You are stupid I swear. I hope by now you realize how retarted your comment was. Cause if not you deserve to be curbed stomped.

Miss you & love you Reaper! With all the blood cells in my body. I will see you again one day.

I AM BILLY FERANDES WIFE. I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IT CLEAR TO EVERYONE BILLY IS NOT THE AWFUL PERSON YOU SEEM TO THINK HE IS. IVE KNOWN BILLY FOR 12 YEARS. WE HAVE A BEAUTFUL LITTLE GIRL TOGETHER THAT WILL GROW UP KNOWING HER FATHER THROUGH A VISITING ROOM BECAUSE OF ONE STUPID NIGHT.BILLY IS A GREAT FATHER AND A WONDERFUL HUSBAND. HE MAY NOT BE HERE WITH US EVERYDAY BUT HE STILL MAKES SURE ME AND HIS DAUGHTER ARE HAPPY. I AGREE THIS WAS A HORRIBLE THING TO HAVE HAPPEN TO ANY FAMILY BUT YOU PEOPLE NEED TO REMEMBER THAT EVERYONE HAS A FAMILY. BEFORE YOU JUDGE DO YOUR RESEARCH AND FIND OUT ALL THE PEOPLE INVOLVED BACKGROUNDS. AND TO WHOMEVER SAID BILLYS FAMILY WONT SHOW THEIR FACES I AM HERE ON HIS SIDE AND WILL DEFEND HIM TO THE END. I WILL FIGHT THIS BATTLE WITH HIM AND HE WILL BE HOME WITH US. I WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR HIS FREEDOM.
