From the Paper:

'Knowing that CHF and depression are linked, I wanted to understand if the depression had lasted for a long time, prior to the death of his wife and the moving away of his family. While it appeared that he had been overweight for a long time, the depression did not seem to have existed at this level before the death of his spouse two years ago."
