He was a good baby brother for Shalanda berkley (of jacksonville, Illinois) and a big brother for christa berkley(of davenport, Iowa). We all miss him very much expecally his closest sister christa. Even though his older sister was out of his life for a little bit, he mannages to take care of his younger sister(christa berkley). We would always remember him like he was still here we hope that he would never go away.

First I am very sorry for loss. Just be thankful it wasn't in Ashland, Il or the killer would go unpunished. Come on Journal and C./ get on this States Attorney and push him to prosecute that family friend.

Let the family go cry in the closet and commit suicide. Ask Jack Kevorkian or a prescription or some cyanide and you get relief homies. Hey spring is here and you have plenty of opportunity to go out and rob banks and murder the bank tellers and then burn the banks down with them in it and use the money for a trip to Hong Kong homies. I spent over 20 years with the Latin Kings, MS-13 and 18th Street Mexicali until I got into an argument over money but your MS-13 and Latin King gangs in your area are quite good and they treat me good homies. The only thing that I liked about Maryland and D.C. is the prisons because I have nothin to lose and I am well experienced in stealing from elderly ladies homes and cutting them with a knife and I got away with a lot of those crimes but prison is my home and prison is beautiful and sweet. That is why I want to move to your area homie. Homies around the Langley Park apartments do shootings and arsons and the guns and packs of matches were stolen from stores and schools on the streets of Washington, D.C. and the Mexicans are poopoo and the woods of Mexico are quite poopoo. I want to start a home and business in your area homie and we can do good. Hey, I am 34 and I have been in and out of prison since I was 15 for stealing money from places and I want to move to your area so I can be with a gang where I can be safe from the pigs in uniform or coppers that try to rig my ass.

That isnt the point Earl, that was my brother. He taught me pratically everything i know and for someone to just come and take his life from me? I was 14 when he passed, i am 20 years old now and i still am going through a traumatic depression from that Valentines day i got the call saying my brother had passed. Richard did not know who he took out, and for what? I as his younger sister will never know. There are days where i want to take care of it myself but i can't, it would be nice for me to know why he killed my older brother, who was not a bad guy. Every year i always want to take my own life because of the depression. He really don't know how badly i miss my brother.
