When writing for publication, there are sad stories, and there are happy stories, and on rare occasions there are stories that are both sad and happy at the same time.

Patterson is one of these: It is, of course, sad for those of us who are left behind when a loved one leaves us, but it is happy when one realizes that this object of our affectionate regard is no longer subject to the ills and unpleasantness that befalls most of us in old age.
