    That’s sad, man. But at least it was peaceful.

      peaceful? a heart attack is no where near peaceful…

        My grandfather was barely 10 years older than Infamous when he died of the same causes, in his sleep, and no bullsh1t after telling my family he was tired. Didn’t make a sound, didn’t move a muscle, laying next to his wife. Even if Infamous woke up when it struck him, those few seconds of knowing aren’t sh1t compared to the other ways you could go.
