Highlight

The district court's selection of a guardian is reviewed on appeal using the abuse of discretion standard.
In applying the statutory order of priorities in the appointment of a guardian for an incapacitated person, the district court is not required to make specific findings regarding which priority applied, but the findings must be sufficient to afford a clear understanding of the district court's decision.
