If any trustee or personal representative fails to delegate the exercise of any functions vested in him or her as a fiduciary, as permitted by §§ 18-3-3 -- 18-3-7, or if, having made a delegation for a limited period, the period has expired, and if the trustee or personal representative is engaged in war service or is outside the continental United States, and for any reason connected with or resulting from any war or national emergency it is not reasonably practicable for him or her to return to the United States, the cofiduciary or cofiduciaries of the trustee or personal representative, if there is any, shall have and may exercise, as long and only as long as the conditions specified in the preceding provisions of this section exist, all of the functions and shall be subject to all of the responsibilities that would devolve upon the cofiduciary or cofiduciaries if the trustee or personal representative were dead, except, the duty to make an accounting of the estate as if the trustee or personal representative had died. Thereafter, until these conditions cease to exist, the trustee or personal representative shall no longer have or possess any of the functions or responsibilities.
