my dad died of a heart attack friday nite March 19th around 8pm, just sittin' with mom after dinner and started gasping for air and died right there on the floor, quick and painless - my mom tried a few times to revive him, the neighbors across the street came over immediately and brought him back a couple of times and kept working on him even after he was cold, but he was gone - the EMS couldn't revive him when they got there 5 minutes later - he was 56 and had a congenital heart condition, he was missing a flap on a valve - after he was given a medical discharge from the navy, he applied for benefits - they told him he had the condition before he went in the navy, after he got out of the navy, but not while he was IN the navy - the VA rep told my parents that to their faces, and denied him benefits...
