Is there a poem or other passage of classical Latin about the following sentiment? I prefer poetry, but good hits in prose are also welcome. It need not — and indeed should not — be the same word for word, but capture the essence of a similar set of emotions.
A loved one has been ill for a long time and has finally passed away. Although there is sorrow of loss, the relief for their suffering coming to an end is far stronger.
