This is Julie's big brother, Bobby Rackley. I've been reading the forums. I really appreciate all of the great things that everyone has said. I am so glad that she was able to do the things she's done and touch so many people at such a young age.
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
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
We will be gathering at my house afterwards to celebrate her life. Directions will be provided.
Please pass this information along to everyone.

I just checked my messages on MySpace and I got something from Julie's family asking if anyone has any contact info for Sarah's family. They apparently don't know yet. This gets sadder and sadder. If anyone has any information please get it to me or to Julie's family ASAP.
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.
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.
