Your son has every right to be at his father's funeral.

Yes, his paternal grandmother has met him.
She's not even talking to me, I'm getting information from his dads sister.

I would ask her why (pretty much just to sound like I was thinking of her feelings not because i gave a shit) and then tell her nicely that he is his son and he deserves the right to say good bye to his dad. And I am sure his dad would want him there is he could say so.

At first the lady was asking (through his sister) if I had a reliable car to get down there, if I had a hotel room, but then she changed her mind, saying "nows not a good time"

It isn't her place to tell you if you can or can't bring your son to his father's funeral. Your son has just as much right to be there as she does. Maybe more.

I'm sorry, I'm just ranting, but they didn't even write my sons name in his dads obituary. "Survived by one son"
Then tramples over it like it doesn't mean smurf and continues to name everyone else in the family.
