Her strained relationship with God is brought on by a last minute request for more time that goes un-granted. Because God denied her last request Granny denies God on her deathbed and dies.

This suggests that Anne may never be able to forgive her husband and obtain closure from her brother’s death. She knows that she has to live with the grief that she feels for the rest of her life because of the decision she made.
