I hereby revoke, as of the date on this agreement, all previous powers of attorney in existence, except for any Health Care Directive(s), which shall remain in full force. Once executed by all listed parties and notarized, this document shall be interpreted as my durable power of attorney and my authorization for my Designated Agent to have the full power and authority to act on my behalf as it relates to all of my property and affairs. In addition to the above powers and duties, I also wish my Designated Agent to make provisions for the following property and affairs. Insert additional actions to be taken on behalf of the undersigned.

Designated Agent shall not be held responsible for delay or failure in performance hereunder caused by acts of third parties, nature, strikes, embargoes, fires, war or other causes beyond Designated Agent’s reasonable control. If any provision of this agreement is held to be unenforceable, the enforceability of the remaining provisions shall in no way be affected or impaired thereby. This agreement and any disputes arising hereunder shall be governed by the laws of State, without regard to conflicts of law principles.

A failure by any party to exercise or delay in exercising a right or power conferred upon it in this agreement shall not operate as a waiver of any such right or power.
