(a) If a veteran is deceased, the amount of compensation to which he would have been entitled shall be paid to the following classes of persons in the order named, each class to the exclusion of all other classes:
1. Surviving spouse of the deceased veteran, provided such spouse is unmarried at the time of application and provided, at the time of the veteran's entry into service and thereafter, such spouse was not without just cause living apart from such veteran;
2. surviving child or children of the deceased veteran, share and share alike; and the descendants of a deceased child shall take the share the parent would take if living (per stirpes);
3. surviving parent or parents of deceased veteran.
(b) Any parent who has been absent from his home and unheard of for a period of seven or more years shall be conclusively presumed to be dead.
(c) No payment shall be made to any grandchild or parent of a deceased veteran unless such grandchild or parent was domiciled in this state for at least one year next preceding the time of application for payment and the share of such grandchild or parent not domiciled as aforesaid shall not be used to increase the share of the remaining individual or individuals in said class but shall be the property of the state. The determination of domicile in these instances will be based upon the same criteria as used in all other cases.
