George Bush Sr passed away at 22:10 local time on Friday (04:10 GMT Saturday), a family spokesperson said.

Bush's health had been failing in recent years but he still managed to make public appearances.

 

In April, he was admitted to hospital with a blood infection but had since been discharged.

 

President Bush died seven months after his wife, Barbara.

President Bush died seven months after his wife, Barbara.

 

Whenever I see something like this, I can't help but wonder if losing their loved one helped in their death.  RIP

There have been cases I believe where someone has died due to a broken heart. It is called Broken Heart Syndrome, and some people speculate that that was the cause of death for Debbie Reynolds.

That's what I was getting at initially. 🙂    If he had died a few days or weeks later, it'd 100% be Broken Heart Syndrome., but since it has been several months, it's hard to say if it was BHS or just his time.

When my one neighbor died, his wife passed away about 8 months later.

When my aunt died, my grandmother (father's side) had passed away about 3 months later [due to a heart attack].

And finally after my grandfather (mom's side) passed away, his mother in law [my grandmother's mom (again, mom's side)] passed away 6 months later.

 

I definitely think it had something to play. I mean granted, he wasn't looking so good anyhow, but still.

That is true.
