family ‘in shock’

In a conversation with wepublishnews, the pastor and stepfather of the young woman, Jerônimo Onofre, said that the family was at home, in Belo Horizonte, when he received the news of the accident.

“We were at our house, me and my wife, Julia’s mother when the hospital called with the news. We got a flight and, at midnight, we were in Curitiba. She died around 1:00 am,” he said.

Jerome said that Julia was full of life and that the family “is in shock”.

“We are desolate, in shock, a very difficult time. Julia was my daughter since she was 6. We are suffering and trying to stand up,” he lamented.

According to the pastor, the family itself told Daniel about Julia’s death.

“He didn’t know. We decided to tell him together, as a family. Daniel is in shock, crying a lot, not believing what happened, they were very united and in love,” said the pastor.

Daniel and Julia were married for 4 years.

“We lost my daughter, my great love, she was going to graduate this year in biomedicine, she was looking for a room to open her clinic, all of this very sad. God gave us, God took us away”, said the victim’s stepfather.
Júlia Hennessy Cayuela had more than 269 ​​thousand followers on a social network. Moments before the accident, she published photos traveling on a motorcycle with her partner and passing through Serra da Graciosa.

Kelle Gripp, pastor of the church the influencer attended for about four years, says she will remember Julia as an extremely God-fearing person and “very good with life.”

“She lived a little, but a lot surrendered to every purpose. It was marked by fidelity, friendship, and companionship”, he highlighted.
