If she calls the shots, who cares what the trust managers think? Let them call her insane, just so long as the DO WHAT SHE WANTS. Btw, make sure she gets physical silver/gold - NOT just a certificate. Silver is BY FAR the better buy - and it is more useful as money. Interestingly enough, gold was not really used as money throughout much of history. It was normally used for higher matters, such as worship (even false worship). Silver served as money. At 1/50th the present price of gold, silver is a STEAL!
