  1. I think this is a thing, where the stress of a death can trigger a medical issue with family members. Especially at risk family members. My uncle died young of cancer. A few days later, his mother, my grandmother, had a heart attack and died. We ended up having to plan two funerals. Years later, my dad was diagnosed with serious lung cancer. While he was in the hospital and things weren’t looking good, his sister had a heart attack and died. Thankfully dad beat the cancer and ended up living a few more years.
