Yes, people have what is called a "Silent Heart Attack" all the time, especially women. I am a cardiology nurse and we have had to inform many patients that they have had a silent MI. So, in our practice we definately believe that some people can die in their sleep peacefully and painlessly. That would also explain why when they died the person sleeping next to them didn't even know they were having a problem.
