Items that are sad in this story:
Grandma dying.
That Grandma thinks what she did is a sly code worthy of her last communication on earth.  It's not exactly the Voynich manuscript. 
That Grandma filled her last message with desperate pleas to an unanswering god, rather than a message of love for her family.
