I think you feel such relief now because a burden that has worn you both down for so long has been lifted. I'll bet that you were actually in mourning for a long time, while your husband was alive and getting worse and there was little that either of you could do but wait for the inevitable.
I'm glad that you are strong enough now to pick up the remains of your world and go onward. Keep on keepin' on.
