The people of Dominica look out for each other.
Though the population growth rate is pretty low due to the number of people who emigrate to other countries, the island has an unusually high number of centenarians. As of 2007, 22 out of Dominica's 70,000 residents were 100 years or older. That's about three times the average instances of centenarianism in developed countries. It's clear the island's residents are treating each other well if they're living that long.
Richardson and Julianna St. Aimie have certainly done their part to re-inforce that sense of camaraderie. In 1983, the couple founded the North Eastern Funeral Association (NEFA). The group's primary objective is to ensure all of Dominica's residents receive a decent and respectable funeral when they die. NEFA is the first and only funeral and friendly society to ever be established on the island.
To help mourners cope with their difficult loss, the company offers a variety of services, including counseling, embalming, radio announcements, coffins and caskets, head stone and funeral programs.
In other words, the people at NEFA provide everything you need during this tough period.
