My Dad story. This is actually true.
I was 14 at the time. One Saturday in 1981, we were all at home. Dad says to me 'Make us a cheese sandwich will you?', so off I go to the kitchen, knocked up the sandwich and gave it to him.

'OK, I'm going up the park' I said. 'See you later'.

After a few hours at the park, I wander home, to find my Mum and dad have gone out. I ask my brother 'Where are they?'. Brother tells me Dad felt unwell, Mum took him to the hospital.

Another hour passes, Mum turns up, driven by a friend. Wierd, but hey, whatever. Mum come in, looking a bit flustered. Her friend says 'can you go in the sitting room and talk to your Mum'.

Mum standing there. No other way to say it. 'Dad's dead'.

So, being sensitive and mature, my first words on hearing about my fathers death . . . 'Fuck, I hope it wasn't the cheese sandwich'.

No warning at all.

(edit) other than feeling unwell just before it happened.

feeling sick before a heart attack is normal, if you can ever call a heart attack normal

It's quite normal
after 40 years of fried breakfasts

or even 5 years.

You shouldn't feel guilty or anything about that
People react to shocks like that in a funny way :(

I never really felt
guitly about it, I think it was well understood at the time to be as you say, a shock reaction.

In fact it is an occasional family joke now. When we're in the mood for some gallows humour.
