This can be for all or specific circumstances. This person may be a relative, a friend, a private or public trustee, solicitor or accountant. An enduring power of attorney will remain effective even though you may suffer loss of ability to make decisions and manage your affairs.

WAR GRAVES As long as we live, they too will live; For they are now a part of us: As we remember them! At the rising sun and at its going down we remember them. At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter we remember them. At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring we remember them. At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer we remember them. At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of the autumn we remember them. At the beginning of the year and when it ends we remember them. As long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us. As we remember them. When we are weary and in need of strength we remember them. When we are lost and sick at heart we remember them. When we have decisions that are difficult to make we remember them. When we have joy we crave to share we remember them. When we have achievements that are based on theirs we remember them. For as long as we live, they too will live, For they are now a part of us, as we remember themy. Related Link : WW2 Nominal Roll
