Unhappy RIP Julie Self.

UPDATES, PLEASE READ:

I've also spoken to the Bexar County officials and Sarah's father has been notified. I am hoping that they will either contact us soon. I need to forward insurance information to them to let them know that service expenses should be taken care of.

Instead of flowers, my mother mentioned that donations to the Humane Society or Animal Defense in Julie's name would be something that she would like.

Below will be the obituary that will run tomorrow moring.

Julia Ann Self
8/29/84
6/18/05

Our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, niece was tragically taken from us on Saturday, June 18th, 2005.

Julie will be truly missed by her parents, Susan and Rocky Self; grandfather, Jessie A. Self; her brothers, Bobby and his wife Leah, Ryan and his fiancť Heather and youngest brother Kyle; her aunt, Barbara, her cousins, Anthony and Michelle; her niece, Paige; her nephews, Tyler, Garrett, Austin and numerous other relatives.

In the short twenty years of her life, Julieís fun loving spirit has touched many lives. Many people that knew her for a short time quickly considered her a dear friend. It only took meeting her once for you to become engulfed in her enthusiastic nature. Her wit was incomparable and her laugh was contagious. She lived her life to the fullest. Although we will never see her again on this earth, her spirit, humor and love of life will live on in our memories. She will always be remembered.

Services will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2005 at 12:00pm.
Mission Park Funeral Chapels
3401 Cherry Ridge Drive
San Antonio, TX 78230
210-349-1414

We will be gathering at my house afterwards to celebrate her life. Directions will be provided.

Please pass this information along to everyone.

Thank you,
Bobby Rackley

More info from her away message:

"Tentatively, services will be held Wednesday at 10am at Mission off Cherry Ridge. We will have a more definite schedule after a meeting tomorrow morning.

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/met....22bed839.html

WOAI will air a short tribute on the 10pm news.

FOX will be doing the same on the 9pm news.."
I'm sure a lot of you have heard already, but if you haven't, Julie Self (apotatojudge), and her best friend Sarah Laws, died in a car accident last night. Here's the only story I've been able to find so far: http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/met....223f9079.html

I'm really too sad to talk about this right now, and I have to go to work and pretend that one of my friends didn't just die for 8 hours, but if you want to use this thread to say RIP, or share a story, or post a funny quote Julie said, go ahead.

Also I will post information as it comes to me, and so will TJ and huond.

RIP Julie.

Here's another paper's report. It's not as informative as the other one, but it's a second source.
Here's a link to a clip of the news story.

They still havent released any names, but her parents confirm it.

I really regret that I was never able to meet her. She was going to be at the COC show, and that just makes me even more depressed.

This isn't a joke or some celebirty we are talking about here so if you are going to post in here please show respect.

Julie was an amazing person who I was lucky enough to meet in New York.

She had an incredible attitude that was really powerful. She could do something to piss you off and you'd still stand by her side no matter what.

This is still so unbelievable that I really don't know what I'm typing so I'll just shut up now.

This is absolutely devastating. I only really knew Julie through her posts here but, with all sincerity, I can say she was one of the funniest and most interesting people to grace these boards. My condolences go out to her family, and the family of the other girl killed. I have many fond memories of her, she constantly brightened my day (one in particular, her valentines day greeting cards that she posted on her blog). I'm just sad that I never got the chance to meet her.

One thing's for sure; this forum will never be the same again.

I wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do, but I did it anyway cause I have no conscience -- a conference call for tonight so we can all get together.

1-831-600-1000
@ 7:45 EST, tonight.
Access code is 58543

I always told Julie she had an amazing talent. She wasn't funny... she wasn't hilarious... she was something beyond that. I always had faith that she'd do something with that talent, but today I feel bad for those that never experienced that girl's sence of humor.

I laughed a bit today, reading some stuff Julie wrote and listening to a voicemail she left me some time ago. Knowing Julie as little as I did, I think she'd want us to laugh (I know that sounds corny, but it's how I feel).

In the end, it's all about her and how we face her tragedy. I'm happy to of ever known her, and I'll sure miss Gigglette.

Calling her mom this morning to get the confirmation is the most heart-wrenching act i've ever performed in my life. I could hear Julie's brother crying his eyes out and it tore my soul to ribbons. I feel so many shades of absolute shit right now.

I feel terrible about not really knowing anything about Sarah and who to contact about her. She was a lot of fun too. FUCK.

That is perfect for describing my friendship with her. I'm going to miss Her and Sarah so much. The only thing that makes me feel even slightly less ass-faced is that I got to take her to NYC last month and she was able to meet Nick, Jeff, Andy Blitz and all kinds of other folks she really wanted to meet. I had such a fucking blast being with her. Fuck, that was one of the best weeks of my life.

I know I shouldn't think this way so please don't tell me, but Julie invited me to come with them yesterday and I can't help but think that if I had gone, we could've cheated fate.

I don't know how many times I've said this in the past 13 hours, but I've never felt this fucking terrible in my entire life.

I'm just sort of babbling here but I really feel awful and its so awesome that so many people cared about her. She was something else.

"She Loved to Laugh"

She went on for about five minutes one day about how she wanted that on her gravestone. I do think it would be befitting of her, but I don't have the heart to tell her family.


I still can't believe this.

I still have that tribute video Tommy made to her months ago.

Tommy, could you re-post it?

So sweet.

Huond: Can't change what happened friend, let's just remember fondly of all the times she had us laughing.

Man her puns are fucking so stupid you can't help but laugh.

Seriously, I know I make dumb videos because I'm a loser and have time, but if you guys can, please send me some pictures of her... any pictures... I'd like to (try) and make one last video.

What can I say? We all grieve differently.

I found out about this in a PM from Cpt today.

She was funny; a lot funnier than I'll ever be. And I am sorry for her family's loss.

i didn't know julie as well as some of you, but i want to say i really respect her amazing courage and energy. she was always hilarious and made such an impression on everyone she came in contact with. i will miss her posts and her blogs and her comments and her prank phone calls and i really am saddened by the fact that i never got to meet her in person. she was, you are right tommy - beyond hilarious not to mention fearless and tenacious and i know that will inspire me to be more like her.

i remember how she saved me from the ihop lady "im her big sister".... and how excited she was about our upcoming trip to new york city. julie had a huge presence on this little internet world and on the alternative comedy scene -- i can only imagine how her immediate family and friends adored her. my heart goes out to everyone who knew her.

I heard this morning. I donít know why this makes me so upset but it does.
Iíve seen so many people I know die and go, and I know itís selfish to feel that itís unfair, and itís selfish to want to pin it on somebody else. But itís never pleasant and itís never easy. When someone, especially so young, with loves and hates and dreams and passions and hopes and humour and all these little idiosyncratic feelings just like mine is dead and gone it seems so unfair and so tragic and it makes me extremely angry and ill. Iíve never been to fond of myself, so I guess I just put so much love into other people and it makes me physically sick when I think how tragic and awful this life treats themÖ I wish I could have known her better but the few times we did talk she was always a very real and good person and I'll miss her and this makes me cry...

Ironically, she says "...it's Julie Self"

...until today, I didn't know self was her last name. I thought she was saying, "Julie herself."

EDIT: It's not "ironic", but I have such a lack of the English language to actually know what it is.

That just reminded me of when we were riding in a cab from the airport and our drivers name was Bygord something. She typed out a message on phone that said "Bygord to yourself and....[fuck i forget]"

She had so many quirks and insecurities that she covered with some really great jokes. She was so great.
