There are many individuals w ho have undertaken to act in a fiduciary capacity, as trustee, executor, guardian or otherwise, without full realization that the obligations imposed upon them by law may result in substantial personal liability, even though every act has been in complete good faith and in an honest effort to perform, conscientiously and efficiently, the duties undertaken.
