A friend of mine says that her mother died of a broken heart and from being lonely. Her husband passed and she didn't live much longer after. I know several people that died shortly after their spouse. Do you believe a person can die of a broken heart and loneliness?

Yes, I believe this. I used to work in Nursing Homes, and saw much of this. When two people ( or animals ) are very bonded, one will not survive the loss of the other for very long.
