"Life is short, let’s be crazy — me, you, god and the road. Your dreams are mine," a translation of her final post read. The photo featured Hennessy and her husband, Daniel Cayuela, posing in motorcycle gear in front of a big yellow sign for the town of Capão Bonito.

The brunette beauty lost her life while on a motorbike road trip with her husband earlier this month. They were involved in a crash on July 15 in São José dos Pinhais outside of São Paulo, Brazil.

"We are desolate, in shock, a very difficult time," her stepfather, Jerônimo Onofre, told G1. "Julia was my daughter since she was 6. We are suffering."

Onofre also said that Daniel did not know his wife had lost her life and was told the sad news by family members: "Daniel is in shock, crying a lot, not believing what happened. They were very united and in love."

Others wondered if Hennessy knew that she would die based on the caption of her last photo.

"From the phrase she put in that photo, it looked like she knew she was going to pass away," one fan pondered, per O Tempo. "In videos, Júlia even stated that the roads along which the couple took the trip were quite winding and that she got nauseated because of the curves in the path. In some moments of the recordings, it is possible to see that there was a lot of fog on the way."
