What most interesting about this story is that both people involved were giving unselfishly to each other without a promise of monetary remuneration. The reward to one came after a long dedication to the feelings and caring for the other.

Even in the short story, it is clear (she didn't want to let go of the check) that the gesture was more important than the money (not that the money won't be used wisely). It seems also likely that the gestures were more important to the old man than the money.

All as it should be.
