Sorry to hear about your mother. I take it the issues pertaining to her estate are just as much family related as legal? It is always hard when loss
is accompanied by fractious family behaviour! Regarding your child, and his wish to join the forces, it can be a good route into other things. If he
really is university material, and you are going to move to Cheltenham, then it may be that he finds himself being asked to work for GCHQ, or in
related intelligence organisations, many of which have offices near GCHQ in Cheltenham, or share staff with them.
It has to be hard to contemplate living without folk to look after, but look at it from a different perspective. Right now, young people do not have
much by way of opportunities. Many young people are looking at futures which see them still living with their parents past the age of thirty, and
property prices are only heading north. Though anyone would understand your apprehensiveness about the change, you have to be proud that your child
has a chance to avoid that common fate, has achieved a chance of autonomy!
Take it from a guy who is twenty eight and lives with his mother (as much of a wonderful human being as she is), there are advantages for a fellow
who can make it on his own, and though it might be a difficult adjustment to make for you, you have to know that even having the CHANCE to go and do
something for himself, is probably going to set up his confidence as a man for the next twenty years! Concentrate on the wings you placed on his back,
rather than the weight that the change places on your heart.
I wish you the best of luck with the whole mess of it!
