Here I am again, picking everyone's brains! Very quickly, I'm an only child, my father died last Xmas and my mother has had Alzheimer's for 8 years and is in a local authority run care home. My parents house sold recently and when the funds become available, I would like, on behalf of my father's wishes, to gift some money to my son. All I would like to know is how to word this request to the Guardianship Office - I don't want to sound mercenary, but at the same time it's my parents money and they left me (verbal) instructions on what to do if the worst happened. Thanks to you all for any help on this.
