    I think so.  When there are two people who are very close and love each other very much, it can trigger an event like a stroke or heart attack.  Also, since our emotions affect our bodies, the emotional trauma could cause depression or worsen existing health conditions which both could ultimately result in death.

    Examples:

    Carrie Fisher, died at age 60 on 12/27/16, from sleep apnea and other undetermined factors.

    Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died at age 84 on 12/28/16, from a stroke.

    Another Example:

    June Carter Cash, died at age 73 on 5/15/03, from complications of heart valve surgery.

    Her husband, Johnny Cash, died at age 71 on 9/12/03, from complications of diabetes.

    Many say it's not possible, but I believe a broken heart can cause issues that will lead to dying.

    Not as the immediate, proximate cause of death, but rather from it being something leading to depression and suicide.

    Yes I believe you can, if not directly then by secondary effects on your behaviours that would affect your psychical health.
