Heartbroken Mom Sends Son’s Ashes On A Trip Around The World
Hallie Twomey has suffered a tragedy no mother should ever have to endure: she lost a child in the most heartbreaking way. She and her 20-year-old son C.J. Twomey had an argument on April 14, 2010. C.J. killed himself shortly after, and the last words they ever spoke to each other were out of anger.
Now C.J., who was in the Air Force, is getting one last adventure to send him off. She took his ashes off the shelf and asked her friends to scatter the remains wherever they could, so that C.J. could travel the world. News of the project spread quickly, and volunteers around the globe have given C.J. send-offs.
More people have volunteered to be a part of the “Scattering CJ” project than Hallie can account for. To date, she’s sent out 150 packets of his ashes to people around the world who want to give him a proper good bye.

Hallie has just two rules for people scattering her son’s ashes: First, they have to tell him that his mother will always love him. Next, they have to tell him that she’s sorry.
Hallie explains on the project’s Facebook page, “It’s simply a chance to put my faith in mankind (a faith that has completely disappeared since witnessing my son end his life) and ask that others help me complete CJ’s final journey.”
