2. The court may assign to a limited guardian of property the duty of assisting the ward to perform any of such functions with regard to any financial resource of the ward.

C. If the court limits any power conferred on the guardian of property or specifies that management of some but not all assets of the ward be placed under the control of a guardian of the property, the limitation or specification of assets subject to the guardianship must be endorsed upon the letters of guardianship.
