sorry to hear man.... what is your skill level? cause if you're intermediate / playing for over 2 years I'd imagine "tears in the rain" by Satriani or "tears in heaven" by eric clapton.

EDIT: NO, DO NOT play her tears in heaven, it might make things worse ( thats my view on it now that I use my brain)

Zakk Wylde: I Thank You My Child

Zakk Wylde: Dead As Yesterday

Awesome songs for soft acoustic performances. Good luck and I'm sorry about your grandmother.
Make me feel serenity when all is revealed
So easy to look back at life and question but I must
Seek the strength to push forward

Teach me to inscribe these words upon my heart
And cover me with the shadow of your hand

maybe a dylan song.... they are pretty nice and calming...
Drum drum drum away!

you can play Before the Dawn by Judas Priest
its a song about a lover leaving the next day but can be interpreted in the way that death takes someone
plus its acoustic and not all Painkiller priest

You could look on youtube for lessons for those songs. You could try Angie by the Stones and instead of saying "Angie" say your grandma's name.

How about some Iron & Wine?
A song like Passing Afternoon or Cinder and Smoke or Such Great Heights could be really good too.

yeah one of those would work well

Frank Sinatra - My Way. Indefinite choice. Do this. Do it. It's great, and really emotional for the older people. Trust me.

How about something she would know and is happy.
