On Aug. 2 2011, a seemingly healthy 21-year-old man never awakened, dying in his sleep from an undetected heart defect.
Melissa Childs isn’t over the loss of her son, Josh Humphreys, and she doesn’t know if she ever will. She does know something that helped her, and she wants to share that blessing in Roane County.
She wants to start a local chapter of Listening Hearts, a support group for bereaved mothers.
“These ladies have helped me tremendously,” she said. “Even if I can help one person, that is my goal.”
