'Hits close to home': Area funeral directors face emotional burden from flood of fatal overdoses - TribDem.com

But they do," said Hindman, whose family operates funeral homes in Johnstown, Hastings and Hyndman, Bedford County."It's tragic," he said.'Slaves' to addictionHoffman said his family's Davidsville and Boswell locations handled funerals for five overdose victims last year.In the past six weeks, he's had three more.Harris said his Johnstown and Conemaugh funeral homes handled a dozen last year.Late last year, he laid four to rest in one month.Hindman said there are times his funeral homes average one a week.Figures vary from one funeral home location to another, but Hindman said the percentage is rising at both his Johnstown locations and pastoral spots such as Hyndman at similar rates.But every lost life had a story – and a room full of grieving loved ones, many of them struggling to come to grips with their shock and sudden grief, funeral home operators said.Hoffman recalled a young mother whose life was suddenly claimed by her addiction.Harris reflected on the 18-year-old high school student who left the tragic note on his hand.The boy's grieving mother said she'd been fighting to rescue him from drug dependency since he was 14 years old, Harris said."He was from a good family and a nice part of town," Harris said.They're not aloneLocal funeral directors aren't the only ones grieving – and struggling to adapt.Pockets of North America are reeling in the wake of a sudden surge in fatal overdoses.In British Columbia, Canada, a funeral association sent bulletins to its membership, urging funeral directors to begin carrying the overdose reversal drug naloxone.The group cited fears that mourning addicts attending an overdose victim's funeral might decide to numb their pain with deadly drugs.In Dayton, Ohio, the Montgomery County Coroners office had to temporarily rent refrigerated trucks to store bodies last year.But the count kept piling up in the 500,000-population county.Earlier this month, after the overdose death count climbed to 163 cases in 33 days, Montgomery County Coroner Kenneth Betz turned to a Dayton-area funeral parlor to temporarily store four bodies, the New York Times reported."We now call funeral homes immediately" to ask if there's space available, Betz told the newspaper. Lost generationIn Wisconsin, a local funeral home posted billboards on the city of Fond du Lac's main street after staff there became frustrated about burying "too many" young men and women due to drug overdoses.That Wisconsin undertaker displayed a funeral hearse and a grim message: "Side effect of heroin: Your vehicle changes."There was advice, too: "Be aware. Speak up. We can wait," the billboard showed.Funeral home operators across the nation are taking notice, according to Robert Biggins, a spokesman for the National Funeral Directors Association."It's probably topic No. 1 right now," said Biggins, a 40-year veteran of the industry who operates a funeral home in Rockland, Massachusetts."We're seeing cases where a funeral home might be seeing a family two or three times because there are siblings involved."And, somehow, it just keeps growing worse, he said."It's a tragedy that's taking away a good portion of a generation," Biggins said.'A mother's fear'Harris and Decort said no words can console grieving parents dealing with the reality they've suddenly lost a son or daughter."I've seen parents torn apart by it," Harris said.Too often, Decort said, he's sat down with parents who suffer silently or fight the fact that a drug like heroin was to blame."Let's face it," Decort said. "Drug addiction is a mother's fear because once it grabs ahold of a child, they feel there's n...
