Can I have the Eucharist at my grandpa's funeral?

My grandfather was a Greek Orthodox and I’m Roman Catholic. My grandfather and my dad have gotten dispensations in the past to receive the Eucharist at the Catholic Church, since they live 80 miles from the Greek Orthodox Church. Can I receive the Eucharist at my grandfather’s Greek Orthodox funeral, like they did at the Catholic Church, or is it only a one way dispensation?

While the Catholic Church might not see a problem with your reception in this situation, the Greek Orthodox Church might. You should contact the priest where the funeral will take place and ask him if he will grant you a dispensation to receive at their liturgy.
