(A) If a will makes a gift to a person on the condition that the person survive the testator and the person does not survive the testator, then, unless otherwise provided, the gift lapses and falls into the residue of the estate to be distributed under the residuary clause of the will, if any, but otherwise according to the laws of descent and distribution.

(B) If the will gives the residue to two (2) or more persons, the share of a person who does not survive the testator passes, unless otherwise provided, to the other person or persons receiving the residue, in proportion to the interest of each in the remaining part of the residue. [Res. 06-R-53 § 7.0(G), 5/3/2006.]
