Tyler lives on: the story of a compassionate friend

Roseann's son, Tyler

The death of a child is something that affects a family deeply. A Port Clinton resident and business owner, Roseann Hickman, has used that pain to try and help others and bring positivity to her life.

On January 26, 1988 Roseann lost her son, Tyler, because of a house fire. Her two other sons, Dustin, who was two, and Dallas, who was three and a half, made it out okay. The fire was caused by a defect in the regulator that allowed propane to come in and out of the house. At the time Roseann and her family lived in Pemberville. They took Tyler back to Port Clinton to be laid to rest .Roseann ended up moving back to Port Clinton in 2003.

To help with the grieving process, Roseann attended meetings of the Compassionate Friends which is a support group for families who have lost a child no matter what the reason. The closest chapter that she found was in Waterville. Seeing a need for it in the Port Clinton community, Roseann started a local chapter of the Compassionate Friends in December of 2010.
