Is there such a thing as dying of a broken heart?

Is there such a thing as dying of a broken heart ? well, my grandpa died tuesday, and me and my mom were talking about it yesterday. she told me my step-grandma will most likely die of a broken heart, if anything. i ws jsut wonderin it that was possible? my aunt died a few years ago and my uncle died 2 days later of a broken heart and they never found out why he actually died. soo, i was just wondeirng if it really is possible. another question: today was my grandpa s funeral and it was open casket. every time i close my eyes i see him laying there. i really want to get it out of my head bc i want to remember him at his birthday party a few weeks ago. is there any way to clear my mind of thatt? thanks in advance :]
