Did James Gandolfini Die of a Heart Attack?

I was shocked this evening to hear news of Soprano’s star James Gandolfini dying in Rome, apparently from a heart attack.

If the early reports prove to be true, his loss is just another indication of how deadly a silent killer heart disease can be. And it’s a reminder to people like me, who already survived one blocked artery or similar heart incidents, that we can’t stray from our new restricted diets for fear of having still more heart problems in the future.jg

His tragic death is doubly ironic for me. I was just in Rome on a long vacation with family. All the while we were there, I agonized over what I could and could not eat. I strayed from my restricted diet daily as family members told me it was ok, a few days of extra fat and salt wouldn’t kill me. Really? I have no idea if Gandolfini knew he had heart problems nor do I know what his eating and drinking routine was like. But his loss brings home to me the need for constant vigilance.
