Every Sunday at the Holiday inn the PCEC has breakfast and a guest speaker
Be there as no need to become a member
Thai888 Law & Abroad Funerals are at the PCEC every Sunday morning Holiday Inn Beach Road 10am.
If you have not been to a PCEC meeting then shame on you. It is in a beautiful venue with 3 large screens for slides of video to assist the speaker. I have done several presentations there and love it. Breakfast, if you want, is 250 baht, fresh bakery, juices, eggs, fruit, salad, bacon, noodles, etc. Membership if you want is around 400 baht per year and goes to running the club. Volunteers do most of the work.
Ren Lexander PCEC volunteer
Ren stood up to the plate when another Member Laurie passed away. Apart from a fantastic variety of guest speakers Ren is not shy with the microphone and presenting himself. This happened last Sunday where a scheduled guest speaker could not make it. Ren gave one of the best presentations of the year, if not the best. It was very informative and showed many different ways of thinking from the Thai people and Westerners.
Abroad Funerals is our newest venture in streamlining the system. Have been in this business for several years we have introduced many systems and standard operating procedures. This results in less time and money spent on running around double handling all the tasks. All you need to do is make a call or email, chat, LINE, Skype, Whatsapp to us and we can guide you through the whole process from making a Will to the funeral.
Beware of hidden costs
Abroad Funerals get many calls regarding the price. Many will tell you an extremely low price and you may commit to this. However, there are many costs that you will know about later on. Police, Embassy, Morgue, transport, fees. Then the temple has 1, 4, or 9 monks, flowers, casket, wreaths, ceremony, electricity, water for guests, flowers, incense, etc. After, there are court fees to get a grant, Embassy fees for translation, courier fees.
Together Thai888 Law & Abroad Funerals saves money
Most importantly it makes sense to give a small quotation fee in the beginning, however the costs will add up. Because when people hear 60,000 baht they are shocked but this is approx 1500 GBP or 1900 USD or 2800 AUD for everything regarding the Funeral costs. This is way below the cost of another country. Therefore, I guarantee you will save time and money by using our services.
Today at 2pm there is a service at Wat Dham Samakkee in Pattaya It is with sadness that we report on the passing of Anthony (Tony) Gordon Heron, age 71, on 29 April 2019.
Tony, a member of the Pattaya City Expats Club since 2007 was very active and often volunteered his assistance at the Club meeting in many areas. He also spoke to the Club about his vocation in the fur trade and about his birthplace in Northumberland County in Northern England. His smiling face at the Sunday meetings will be missed.
Funeral arrangements are being made by Thai888 Law and Funerals. We will post date, time, and location when known.He is survived by two daughters, Amber and Janine.

Lawyer, Living Will, Solicitor, Probate, Wills, Legal Advice, Funeral Director, Executor, Repatriation, by Thai888 – one company in control of all things to do with Will making going to Court, Embassy, Family & Friends, Beneficiaries, Repatriation, English and international experience.
I opened the talk with a comparison to Insurance for house, condo, car, health, life as we all pay for these to lower the costs later on.
However when you land in hospital then there is no control over costs for keeping you alive when there is no hope of recovery. A Living Will can stop the hospital keeping you alive on a machine at a daily cost. You could be kept alive on a machine for a very long time while the family has an moral and ethical issue with unplugging you from the life support.
The subject on how do I make a Living Will is a legal one as it comes under the Health Code Section 12 where by it is permitted to withhold intervention by medical staff if you are in a state where you cannot recover or in a terminal state and cannot recover. It is not Euthanasia. As far as I know there are only a few countries that allow this and Australia is one of them.
No one wants to talk about Living Wills as it is a most unpleasant subject and should you be named as the person that tells the hospital to withhold treatment then you have a big task and responsibility ahead of you.
It is not easy particularly as there is a legal signed Living Will, the Doctors Hippocratic Oath and your religious convictions. All with a different opinion.
One issue that has come up recently is that when someone has a Living Will and ends up in hospital ICU? In this case as soon as possible the hospital must be made aware of the wishes of the person that made the Living Will and that it is legal and in place.
I suggested to the audience yesterday that in your passport you have a card of Thai888 Law or write in the back that you have a Living Will and do not resuscitate DNR. As the first thing authorities look for is the passport and then it will be in plain sight for them.
Hello and thank you to all our existing and new clients. This year we did not have our traditional party for you all. The main reason is that Thai888 Law has grown and we felt that it was time to give back to the needy and so each week at the Pattaya City Expats Club we have been donating some money for Christmas presents for the children.
There are dozens of other charities to and so instead of giving to one we have been trying to give to the ones we feel are more worthy. The ones with small overheads so that most of the money goes to the children.
How about you?
Its very good Karma to give in a Buddhist country and so I ask you to give something back to the country that allows you to stay.
Every little bit helps.
Merry Christmas to you all and see you next year.
Although we will still be in the Pattaya area we are planning to have lunch on the 25th and the staff will not return until the 3rd Jan 2019.
