My Grandma just passed away at 2am. I am going to New York and will get there on Wenesday for the funeral. Please read description.

She died and I was planning to go to New York on tuesday before she died. How long will they wait for the funeral in New York. Will I make it? I do not even know her. I have not seen her in years and she also doesnt know her son,my dad, is in jail, I also need to make a nice speech for the funeral.

Many factor's enter in here. First, you didn't say where you were coming from, so I can't tell you if you will "make it in time". Also, holding the funeral can be done, of course. But, it is up to the person and family paying for it to decide that, so you need to contact them and talk to them. I hate that it is taking a loss such as this to bring you back to a reunion with your family. I wish you the best of luck.

See a local travel agent, you can get priority airline service. You are eligible for certain discounts as well because your travel is due to death in family. During the time of the eulogy, Just speak of what's in your heart, and any good memories of grandma.

I have not seen her since I was 5. The only memory I have of her is me throwing up in her bed. And I already have a plan to get there which included 2 days of car sickness.

If you didn't know your granny and she didn't know you, it just seems strange that they want you to speak at her funeral. Since you don't know anything about her, you could ask your relatives to give you some quick info like what her favorite color was, what her favorite flower, song was, things like that. Or you could just describe what a grand mother is... This is a hard assignment. Good luck !
