Of the Trust. 4 Notwithstanding the provisions directing the Trustee to apply principal liberally, the Trust expressly conveyed broad latitude to the Trustee to act in 4 Since Appellant has not identified an ambiguity in the Trust documents, there is no need for us to consider the circumstances under which Decedent executed the Trust, nor is there any need for us to resort to general rules of construction in interpreting the relevant provisions. its sole discretion in deciding whether to invade principal to provide support and maintenance to Appellant. In addition, the residual paragraph at the conclusion of section A of the SIXTH Article of the Trust affirmatively empowered the Trustee to consider other resources available to Appellant when considering discretionary payments under section A.1.b. We agree with the Orphans’ court that the Trustee may consider such resources when distributing principal for any purpose under section A.1.b. and not simply for Appellant’s housing needs. As the Orphans’ court aptly observed: Furthermore, [t]he [Orphans’ c]ourt interprets the final sentence [of the residual paragraph of the SIXTH Article] to be a confluence of two distinct directions given by the [D]ecedent. The Trustee, in its discretion, is authorized by the [D]ecedent to distribute unlimited principal for the purchase, expansion, improvement or replacement of one or more homes for [Appellant], up to the exhaustion of the [T]rust. The Trustee is also directed to give consideration to [Appellant’s] other available resources as the Trustee deems appropriate to making discretionary distributions. Trial Court Opinion, 9/24/13, at 7. For each of these reasons, we conclude that Appellant is not entitled to relief on her second claim. Order affirmed in part and vacated in part. Case remanded.
