    Default Does your family know of your wishes if you die in the DR?

    For those of you who live in the DR.
    Have you planned ahead how it should be handled if you die there?
    Did you plan for it financially?
    Have you discussed it with family?

    I never figured out why one would care what happens when they die unless hey live by the fantasy that they go off to Heaven somewhere.

    Nor have I ever heard of a will that was actually followed. But those in our family never went to court etc....

    I am a member of a club in the campo. We each pay RD$50 when someone dies and that money - around RD$20,000 gets given to the family when someone dies. I would rather be cremated on our barbecue and scattered under the avocado tree, but cremation more expensive here than burial and it isn't allowed to cremate me on the barbecue and I couldn't be scattered as it isn't allowed, so I don't really mind - whatever costs less and upsets the community less!

    Nope. They can do what they want after I am dead.

    I've gone into details with all my friends and family. My ashes will be divided to 3 people for disposal in my 3 favorite places in 3 countries.. They all know their responsibilities.

    In Panama I signed up with Hospital Santo Tomas and my body was theirs for research or whatever when I died, meanwhile I got medical care from anything Santo Tomas did for $30.00 per month. But I stole my corpse and brought it here. Is there something like that here I don't know about?

    I hope my family finds out I'm dead 20 years after it happened.

    Of course you reimbursed them in advance for this massive lack of consideration
