Farewell Baz

Last week was big, very big for the EVOHE family as we said farewell to EVOHE Co-Founder Baz Forrester, after a long illness.

Grief is so personal and as I sit here thinking about what to write, I reflect on the poignant conversations I have had with Meg, (Baz’s soul mate and EVOHE Co-Founder), this week as she navigates the gamut of emotions brought about by the huge void opened up with his passing. Cradled firmly but ever so gently by the couple’s circle of loyal friends and family, Meg has been allowed to experience her grief without pressure to conform to conventional views of what it is to grieve ‘properly’. As a result EVOHE has been overflowing with joy and love and a great sense of peace tinged with tender sadness ….oh and food, lots of amazing food thanks to Meg and Baz’s dear friend, Chef Cynthia Louise!

Never one to succumb to conventionality himself, Baz was an extraordinary organic chef, a passionate individual, a quantum thinker and an inspirational mentor who leaves a huge legacy for us to remember him by. EVOHE is arguably one of his greatest gifts to the world and this week we realised what we had always suspected, that EVOHE is not just an ethical skincare company, it is much, much more. EVOHE will always represent a Celebration of Life and the love that we give to ourselves

Baz never stood on pomp and ceremony, so it seemed fitting that instead of mourning his loss we should celebrate his life, and last Sunday, celebrate is what we did. Baz’s influence has clearly extended far beyond his departure from this world as he very generously organised a stunningly beautiful Winter’s day for the scores of friends and family who celebrated a short life very well lived. We hope these photos reflect the love and peace we shared.

RIP Bazza, we love you!
