I agree with Mr. Brinkmier, however ... if the principal's health is such that he or she is unable to remove you (or they are unwilling to remove you), someone needs to pay an attorney to prepare a "resignation" of agent so banks and others will know that the backup is duly-empowered to act as Agent under the POA.
