If the individual or individuals with the highest priority cannot be located after a good-faith effort to contact and inform them of the decedent's death, affirmatively decline to exercise their rights or powers, or fail to exercise their rights or powers within 48 hours after receiving notification of the decedent's death, the rights and powers may be exercised by the individual or individuals in the same order of priority.
If the individual or each of the individuals in an order of priority as determined similarly affirmatively declines or fails to exercise his or her rights or powers within 48 hours after receiving notification that he or she may act or cannot be located, the rights or powers pass to the next order of priority.
"Exercise their rights or powers" Means notifying the funeral establishment in possession of the decedent's body of an individual's decision to exercise his or her rights or powers.
