What Does Durable Power of Attorney Mean In Estate Planning?

A legal document giving someone else the legal authority to make general decisions on your behalf when you cannot act for yourself.  This can be limited to doing one thing (signing a mortgage, buying a car) or broad enough to cover anything and everything you make decisions on.  This is valid through incapacity but ends the moment of death.
