We miss you so much. We love you Evan.
One of Evan’s wishes, at the time of his death, was that his friends take his ashes all over the world and scatter them.
In January 2016, two and half years after Evan Scofield death, John announced that that wish has been fulfilled.
Many of you know, my son Evan.
His wish was that his friends take his ashes all over the world and scatter them. It’s been a remarkable project for the last 2 1/2 years and we are finally done.
His mom Susan, sister Jean and partner Ursula have curated a beautiful website (with the technical expertise of Jay Miolla) that documents the many trips friends and family took spreading his ashes across the globe.
It’s www.scatterevan.com. Great job beloved family.
