''Death would have been a relieve, but it seemed he wasn't supposed to be relieved.'' How do I CORRECT THIS?

1st : a relieve (is incorrect) should be "a relief"
Death would have been a relief, but it seemed he wasn't supposed
to be relieved.
Cannot correct the second part unless I understood what you are
really trying to say.
Did you mean in a odd way that he wasn't going to die and therefore
he is not going to be relieved?
Death would have been a relief, but it appeared he going to live in
continued pain (sorrow,etc.)

Relief... Not relieve

The first one should be "relief," since it's a noun. The second is a verb.
