					Estates of deceased persons. To receive in my name and in my behalf the distribution to me as an heir of the decedent, and as a beneficiary under the will of the decedent any real and personal property, tangible and intangible, and to give a receipt and discharge for it in my name. No person conveying or delivering any real or personal property, tangible or intangible, to my attorney shall be required to see to the ultimate disposition of it, and the receipt of it by my attorney shall discharge any obligation or duty any such person may have had to me. To agree to partition, or to file an action to compel the partition of any property, real or personal, tangible or intangible, in regard to which I have an interest as an heir at law or beneficiary under any will of the decedent. It is my intention to authorize my attorney to do any act and execute any documents or instruments in regard to the estate of the decedent or any real or personal property, tangible or intangible, in regard to which I have an interest as an heir at law or beneficiary under any will of the decedent, which I could do in regard to it. To appear in the probate proceedings and demand accountings from the executor, to demand the prompt filing of any documents or instruments required by law to effect the disposition of the estate proceedings and the distribution of assets to the beneficiaries, to request the removal of the present executor, if necessary, and to apply for and consent to the appointment of a new executor. In such proceedings he [or she] is further authorized to execute all documents and instruments in my name and on my behalf to effect the division of any property, compromise any and all claims, and execute releases. He [or she] shall have the power to engage attorneys at law to represent him [or her] and obligate me and my estate for the payment of fees and expenses incurred by him [or her] or such attorneys in all matters relating to the estate and any interest I may have in the estate. To execute in my name and on my behalf any notes, deeds, mortgages, assignments of security, pertaining to any real or personal property, tangible and intangible, to which I may have an interest in or claim to, arising out of the estate, and in particular relating to, but not limited to, each item of real and personal property as it is set forth in the inventory filed in the estate of _________, a copy of which inventory is attached to the petition for probate of will, and a copy of which is also attached to this power of attorney. To prosecute any claims that I might have against the estate of the decedent or any person indebted to the estate, including claims for misfeasance, malfeasance, neglect, waste, or actionable mismanagement of the estate of the decedent or for any real or personal property, tangible or intangible, and in regard to which I have an interest as an heir at law or beneficiary under any will of the decedent. To compromise, release, and discharge any debts or claims that I might have against the estate of the decedent or any person indebted to the estate, including claims for misfeasance, malfeasance, neglect, waste, or actionable mismanagement of the estate of the decedent or for any real or personal property, tangible or intangible, and in regard to which I have an interest as an heir at law or beneficiary under any will of the decedent. The enumeration of the foregoing powers is not intended to limit my attorney in the premises, but to indicate that he [or she] has the power and authority to do each and every necessary thing which I as an heir or beneficiary could do.
