I just started reading this book called "A Dirty Job" by Christopher Moore. The author has dedicated his work to Patricia Moss by this sentence:
This book is dedicated to Patricia Moss, who was as generous in sharing her death as she was in sharing her life".
I don't exactly get the meaning of it. Is there any kind of irony in this sentence? Does the writer want to say "She not only shared her life with others when she was alive, but also, when she died, she was still generous and shared her death with others and killed them"? or the writer only wants to praise Patricia Moss?
