Yeah really scary stuff. Even more so when your family has an history of hearth problems. Well, whatever happens, will happen so... Anyways I'm sad she's gone. Maybe she'll bring to people's attention the fact that anyone can die young.
Dear lord, everyone good in the anime/manga/Japanese music are dropping like flies, it's horrible, someone in the government should step in and do something about stress levels among Japanese people (implementing more stress management programs). In Japan heart attacks aren't as common as you think, it's that more people die of them than survive.
