grief has a lot of aspects, and relief is a VERY common attribute of grief. Often, guilt for feeling relief is present, too.

One of the reasons that the death of our pets can hit us really hard is that our relationship with animals is uncomplicated. I can't think of a single person I'm really close to about whom I have completely unmixed emotions. And even if I've never had a disagreement with someone, frequently just knowing that they're out of pain brings relief.

tl;dr: Grief is anything it is. No judgment.
