Can you be Happy while in Grief?

This is often seen win Thanatologic cases, where a terminally patient or loved one soon passes away due to disease complication... we often say that we are happy for them because their suffering has ended and they are already at peace with the Lord. But how come we still grieve at their loss.. Can we be happy at end of their suffering ans at the same time grieve for our loss? What do you think of this predicament? Any opinion?

I think both emotions can be felt. As you said, you are happy cause finally its the end of your suffering and you are also sad because of your loss. Its just like taking things in different perspective. Its just like sometimes I feel fear at the same time I have peace. I think that's comfort coming God.
