contain such terms and conditions as such attorney-in-fact may approve in such
attorney-in-fact's discretion.

The undersigned hereby grants to such attorney-in-fact full power and authority
to do and perform any and every act and thing whatsoever requisite, necessary or
proper to be done in the exercise of any of the rights and powers herein
