Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. As far as your mother history is concerned, diabetes can give cardiac arrest and that can lead to pump failures and lowering blood pressures. Suicidal and heart breaking needs a little more explanation, it could be due to the suicidal substance used that could be toxic to heart . Needs a complete postmortem evaluation to find out the possible cause for it.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
