Seventh St. March 16, 1942- June 20,2003 said. Two of the bodies were found in a garage at Sherrill-Harden Funeral Home and six were in a back room. Officials said four were in cremation boxes. The others were in containers.

"I can't imagine being in the families' position. We are going to try to get every detail and get to the truth." The Lucas County Health Department warned Sherrill-Harden in a June 4 letter that it had failed to file timely death certificates. The law requires the filing of the certificates day outside the building. Kimberly Lampkin said she has been trying to reach state officials for months to complain about Sherrill-Harden. Lampkin said the funeral home told her they didn't cremate and bury her mother's ashes as planned until almost four months after she died in September 2001.

A few weeks after her mother's October memorial service, Lampkin said, a man in a dilapidated pickup truck came to her house and said he had her mother's ashes. She said the funeral home told her it was a misunderstanding. "It hurts to know that your mama might not be cremated and that she might be in the basem*nt," Lampkin said. Ronnette Munn, 48, said the funeral home handled her father's services after he died April 20. "I'm praying to God he wasn't one of them who was in there," she said." Munn said funeral Director Henry Harden was professional and handled the services well.

Robert Barner, whose cousin was cremated in December, agreed. "He did right by me," Barner said.
